Those considering relocation to a home for rent in the Houston area have probably already formed an image of the city: a bustling sprawl that includes oil rigs, international headquarters, the Astrodome and NASA (after all, "Houston" was the first word uttered on the moon). But those who have explored the area with a more discerning eye often find a different side to the city. Though Houston is the largest city in one of the nation's largest states, cozy and intimate settings are easily found amid its surrounding towns. Rental homes in Conroe, Texas, are a frequent destination among those who wish to tap into Houston's resources, but lead a lifestyle that benefits from the small-town way of life.
For many years, the area around Conroe rentals had a reputation of a sleepy, rural town with much to offer in the way of charm and character. In recent years, its population has mushroomed to nearly 50,000, according to the U.S. Census and local estimates. In the past decade, a construction boom provided many of the state-of-the-art Conroe rental homes that newcomers are now renting.
Today, those who rent homes in Conroe carry on the town's local traditions, which include an avid appreciation for music. Town officials still chronicle Elvis Presley's performance on the downtown Crighton Theater in 1950 as one of the town's most treasured events. Today, locals in Conroe rental homes can attend free concerts on Thursday evenings during the summer, the Sounds of Texas Music Series, and Crighton Theater productions, such as a Frank Sinatra tribute or The Music Man.
