Pea Pie 2000

I live in Tomball. We don't have much crime here. It's a lot less populated than most Houston suburbs. We can actually drive on our roads as opposed to Spring or Cypress that are nearby. The price of living here is average. We are right next to the Woodlands, which is super nice and not crowded at all. Everything is well kept and easy on the eyes. It's nice having easy access to such an upscale area but for and average price tag. I wouldn't live anywhere else in the Houston area. Most of the other suburbs are super high in crime and so crowded that you can't even go to your neighborhood store without dealing with tons of traffic and long lines. Do better research next time. P.S. our THS superintendent has a PHD. Run and tell that.

Tomball is actually one of the nicer parts of Houston metro also Freeport is chemical industry city I guess you could say whear a person with no education can get a 50 k + a year job as far as the rest their mainly towns in the so called valley and yes it's pretty poor down there except for eagle ford shale oilfield. Anyways i driove a truck for a living and I live in gilmer tx and I know who ever made this video don't know what their talking about. I want to know whear this person lives at. Not only is Texas a surplus state financially but we are also one of the most modern and advanced states in the country

I've lived in Tomball my entire life and tbh it's pretty nice. There's not really much crime and the traffic isn't really that bad. But you're right about the cost of living

I have lived in Tomball for 21 years and I teach in Tomball. I could not be more proud of this little piece of paradise. Love the main street parades that honor our veterans, athletes, and little league teams. We show our kids that they are important and if you look at the scores for our schools you would be looking for one of those empty houses to move your family into.
