Pearland’s location is one of its greatest assets. Located approximately 20 minutes from downtown Houston and less than 15 minutes from the Texas Medical Center, Pearland offers the lifestyle of a small town but still provides easy access to the Theater district, and Houston’s many fine restaurants. Pearland is 15 minutes from NASA’s Johnson Space Center, providing a highly educated workforce. Beltway 8, Houston’s second loop, runs along Pearland’s northern boundary. In addition, Pearland is located off State Highway 288, which is surrounded by some of the most undeveloped land around Houston. This results in less highway traffic than is normally faced on any other Houston highway. For air travel, Houston’s Hobby Airport is less than 10 minutes from Pearland’s northern city limits on State Highway 35. (via Pearlandtx.gov)
Pearland is home to Shadow Creek Ranch, a 3,500-acre lake themed master planned community south of Houston in Pearland, Texas. The proximity of Shadow Creek Ranch to all of Houston’s business, sports and entertainment venues places Shadow Creek Ranch firmly in the heart of everywhere you want to be.
But what’s more, the scenic vistas of glistening lakes, the town square, parks, pools, and miles of hike and bike trails will place Shadow Creek Ranch firmly in the hearts of those who choose to call it home.(via shadowcreekranch.net)
