Maybe it’s because we live our lives a little sweeter, but what I love most about Katy is the atmosphere. Whether you’re at a school play, a sporting event, or just eating out, you’ll feel the Katy charm. It’s that “I know everyone here feeling.” It’s a familiar welcoming way of life that can’t go unnoticed.
If you’re planning on moving to Katy or just coming for a visit, Katy, Texas is truly a spectacular place.
Katy is a bussling suburb just west of Houston. It’s known for it’s family friendly atmosphere, amazing schools, and spectacular living. What started as rice patties has turned into a major suburb in the past 40 years. Katy offers an alternative to big-city living with an easy commute to downtown.
