Spring is definitely suburbia! Itâ€™s right outside of Houston on your way to Conroe, The Woodlands, and other smaller townships/cities.
I agree heavily wooded (mostly pine and oak). The Spring area varies significantly so I would pick were I lived by neighborhood. Some neighborhoods will have great home owners associations some will have a bad ones or none at all. But again each neighborhood is usually pretty separated from its surroundings. I would recommend sticking to the ones that have good home owners associations. They are nicer and are holding their value better as you would expect. There are many unique developments and your pick of homes at a good value.
