Catch the buzz of Fulshear, Texas
Posted by: scentandviolet May 31st, 2018
Anyone can look at a map of Texas and give Houston a nod of attention. But in only a mere 20 minutes away from the hustle, bustle, and noise of the city sits a small, charming city. That city is Fulshear, Texas.
The first time I went to Fulshear, Texas was many years ago. It was an emergency flower delivery for a florist friend. I still remember walking into Fulshear Methodist Church with a sympathy plant in my hands and, being welcomed by some wonderful ladies. It was a love at the first sight. Fulshear had horses, and Simonton had some pretty awesome Simmental cattle. I used to "escape" often into this lovely area: Fulshear, Simonton, Wallis, to Rosenberg. Antique stores, cattle, horses (yes - it is perfectly ok to yell horsy! if you're driving by), art galleries...
It is such a pleasure to watch this pretty little place grow and develop into budding town and economy, while old town still has that Main St. feel. Every time I go to Fulshear with flower delivery (or to visit Farmer's market) I cannot help but admire the growth and development, but also commitment of the residents to preserve historic district.
This city has become a booming commercial district, the highest per capita income, and boasts one of the lowest tax rates in the Houston area. But these are just a few reasons to seriously check out Fulshear for a vacation visit or for your next move as home. The City of Fulshear is home to approximately 1300 happy folks who will welcome you as their neighbor and friend. And if visiting for the day or relocating for a new job, you will be happy you discovered this great small city!
- The Arts and Events - No matter your age, Fulshear offers a wide sampling of classes and programs in the arts, theater, and even a drive-in movie. You can count on a ton of fun at the Freedom Feast, the St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Fall Fundraiser, Christmas market, and holiday celebrations. Or be the Special Investigator who figures out the bad guy at the Mystery Dinner...surprises are around every corner.
- Schools - Fulshear's pride is education proves itself with 75% of the city's schools rated in the top-tier of schools in the Houston, Katy, and Sugarland areas. A new high school, middle schools, and elementary schools house numerous students excelling in their studies and achieving their goals.
- Beauty - The city's topography is diverse and open. Rolling hills, 100 year old hardwood trees, grassy prairies, water and wildlife like "gators" compliment Fulshear's farming and ranching history. City parks preserve the natural beauty of historical buildings. Fulshear is just seven miles from additional shopping, entertainment, and dining options.
For your next weekend trip, plan to visit Fulshear and Simonton. You wont regret it.
