South Houston

Some areas of Houston Real Estate within the southern region are currently the fastest growing areas Houston. Years ago this area was home to fig and orange orchards as well as a large number of rice farms. Today, the farms have been replaced by new home construction in and around the Clear Lake area. Older communities also exist in Clear Lake, Pearland and further south in Galveston county. The proximity to downtown, Hobby Airport and the Johnson Space Center/NASA have contributed to the popularity of this area.

CLEAR LAKE The Clear Lake area, which is home to the Johnson Space Center, is located 20 miles southeast of downtown Houston via Interstate 45. Communities in the area include Friendswood, Pearland, League City, Webster, Dickinson, Kemah, Seabrook, and Clear Lake. Clear Lake is located on the Texas Gulf Coast, adjacent to Galveston Bay. In fact, the area is only minutes from the scenic beaches of historic Galveston Island. Clear Lake offers an exciting variety of things to see and do year round, not only for local residents but for visitors too.

NASA is directly and indirectly the largest employer in the Clear Lake area. Many other Clear Lake residents work in downtown Houston. The rush hour commute is about 35 minutes. Clear Lake is located within 20 minutes of Hobby Airport, and 50 minutes from Bush Intercontinental Airport. Still others in the area are employed by the three area hospitals, the numerous clinics, the three shopping malls, and the area schools, colleges and universities. Future Economic and Growth projections for the Clear Lake, Houston and Galveston Island areas remain strong.

There is also a program for gifted and talented students called "Alpha". Clear Creek ISD's students continually perform well above the state average on state and national achievement tests.
