Harris County is a unique, rustic and picturesque place to live, whether you are starting a family or retiring from the bustling city life. Only minutes away from many adjacent cities, the back roads and scenery provide an almost majestic experience for all. Retirees will find beautifully landscaped subdivisions where they can enjoy the slower lifestyle earned after many years of hard work. And families love raising their children in a rural atmosphere where their activities find safe, natural settings are their playgrounds.
