One of the things I’ve always loved about living in Channelview is that it’s one of those cities that only the locals tend to know about. It’s a typical suburb but it’s fairly small, which is really nice if you like the small time feel of a city, like I do. I love that I can get to know my neighbors so well and that I can trust my neighbor to watch my house whenever I go on vacation.
There are a lot of new homes going up in Channelview, and from what I’ve seen they’re really nice homes in the best areas of Channelview. It’s bringing even more of a family-friendly feel into the town. The small schools? They’re amazing. Knowing that your child is going to be in a small-sized class? There’s nothing better for a parent, honestly. There are some great restaurants here but for serious socializing you’ll have to drive into the city, which is generally about an hours commute. There is, however, a good strip mall that’s been built so now it’s a lot easier to get your shopping done locally.
