A Family Guide to Houston

Thank you to Lemon Grove Realty Group for sponsoring this valuable guide for all things Houston. Whether you have lived here forever or are new to town, we hope you find it valuable!

Welcome to the Space City

Houston can be incredibly overwhelming for newbies and home grown folks alike. Whether you’ve been here for years or you’re visiting H-Town, it can be hard to know where to find what you’re looking for!

Where should we go? What should we do? Where are we? What does that mean?

Houston Moms’ goal is to make this huge city feel a tad bit smaller!

Let us help you discover what our city has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a new park to visit on a sunny day, want to try some new foods while your in-laws are in town or seeking a chiropractor in your area, we’ve got you covered.

Everything is bigger in Texas, but we have a ton of resources that will help make Houston more bite sized and make you a pro at all things H-Town!


Finding the right home can be a challenge, especially when moving to a new city. Lemon Grove Realty Group can help you accomplish your goals with ease, whether you are searching for your forever home, wanting to sell your Houston home or needing something temporary.
Home is so much more than bricks and mortar. It’s a community where you feel you belong and where you find joy in your everyday life. It’s stopping by your local coffee shop, chatting with the vendors at your favorite farmer’s market, or enjoying the events that take place in your neighborhood. As Houston experts, your Lemon Grove agent will guide you to find the community that’s the best fit for you and your family.
Lemon Grove Realty Group’s core belief is that as a community, we are better and stronger together.
