      Country and Quiet Living in Rosenberg

      Living in Rosenberg, Texas is very country, quiet and peaceful. The people are very nice and it's not uncommon to see neighbors helping each other out. The best part about Rosenberg is that we are not that far from Houston, which has more activities, shopping, and restaurants.

      I enjoy taking my nieces and nephews to Paint Until You Faint in Richmond which is about 5 miles away. It's a perfect place to bring friends or family even if you don't enjoy painting. We have several museums that history buffs might find fun including the Cowboy and the railroad museums.

      There's not much shopping in Rosenburg unless you like small unique boutique shops. I usually travel to Sugarland or Houston once a month to shop. We have typical restaurants including Mexican, BBQ, Indian and Pizza. If you love the country, having friendly neighbors, low crime and a great place to raise kids, then Rosenburg is a perfect place. Although we don't have everything, we are easily accessible to bigger cities.
