Find Apartments to Rent in Spring, TX
Located just north of Houston, Spring, TX offers its residents a variety of pleasant suburban neighborhoods and easy access to parkways, highways, and freeways that lead to other parts of the Houston Metropolitan Area.
This suburb is neatly divided into an east and west side by I-45, a major north-south artery. People who prefer the eastern side of I-45 are close to George Bush International Airport and enjoy a less densely populated part of town with somewhat lower average living costs and a more rural feel. Residents who live west of I-45 have quicker access to more cultural, shopping, and entertainment venues, and many enjoy a very short commute to jobs at Hewlett-Packard and other major local employers.
Some people also want to consider school districts when they choose their new Spring apartment. There are exceptions, but Spring ISD mostly serves the eastern side. Klein ISD mostly serves the western side of the suburb.

Gleanloch Farms, named after the original owners of the ranch that used to be located on the site, is a very large, popular, and fairly new planned community.

Besides having hundreds of homes, elementary schools right inside the subdivision, school busses to middle and high schools, and community centers with pools, Glenloch Farms even has its own lake.

The entire Houston Metropolitan Area is known as a driving city, and Spring is no exception. That said, there are plenty of good local roads like Louetta Road and Spring-Cypress Blvd that take drivers between major arteries like I-45, Highway 2920, and I-249.
