Are you looking for a friendly community? Maybe you’re hoping to enjoy small town charm without being too far removed from the greater Houston area. Good news – you can find a slower paced lifestyle in Waller & Hockley! Take a look at the benefits of living just outside of Cypress and why we think you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds.
Hockley, TX is a 10-minute drive west on 290 from Cypress, and this quaint town boasts some excellent attractions for family fun! Enjoy date night or family movie night at the Showboat Drive-In, a retro spot for double features best viewed from the tailgate of your pickup truck. Or, enjoy a picnic lunch at the Oil Ranch, a real working ranch with more than 50 acres of amusements and activities for the entire family. Don’t forget to stop by during fall and visit the pumpkin patch and scarecrow festival!
Head just a few more miles down 290 and visit Waller, one of the last great rural escapes in the Houston area. It’s home to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park – a campsite that’s a hit with tourists and locals alike looking to escape the Texas summer. Enjoy floating the lazy river while the kids play on the water slides! Waller also hosts a county fair at the start of fall, hit the golf course or the tennis court at Houston Oaks Country Club, and enjoy a wine tour of Waller County – an event you will not want to miss!
Additionally, both Waller and Hockley combine to boast an exceptional school district. Waller ISD has served the community for 130 years and continues their long-standing tradition of academic and extracurricular excellence. Waller ISD is dynamic and fast-growing, providing an excellent education to more than 6,800 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
