Conroe

Best known for the 22,000-acre Lake Conroe and all the opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Welcome to Conroe

The largest city and county seat of Montgomery County, Conroe is named after lumberman Isaac Conroe, who founded his sawmill there in 1881. The new city was originally called Conroe’s Switch, as it was situated at the junction of two railroads. Later the name was shortened to Conroe, and the city prospered because of its thriving lumber and oil industries. For one brief moment in history, it even boasted more millionaires per capita than any other U.S. city.
 
With today’s population passing 70,000, Conroe is booming like never before. As Houston’s growth continues its inexorable march northward, and ExxonMobil’s new campus opens and fills up, the lively downtown area has added numerous art galleries, restaurants, shops, two antique malls, and theaters providing plenty of entertainment. Two craft breweries and a distillery draw the beer enthusiast as well.
 
But that’s not all there is to do in Conroe. Surrounded by rolling hills and dense pine and hardwood forests, the town is perhaps best known for the 22,000-acre Lake Conroe and all the opportunities for outdoor recreation it provides.
 
Lake Conroe itself is one of the natural crown jewels of Montgomery County, along with its pristine national and state forests. The 157 miles of shoreline surrounding this scenic lake are ringed by some of the area’s most sought-after communities, including April Sound, Bentwater, and Walden on Lake Conroe. Grand Central Park encompasses 2,046 acres of state park-like settings with over 1,700 homes built by eleven builders. Added to this area’s gorgeous natural landscape are golf courses, tennis courts, country clubs, and many other upscale amenities.
 
Named after and inspired by the Jimmy Buffit lifestyle, the newly opened Margaritaville Lake Resort combines 303 luxury suites and 32 waterfront cottages into 186 acres of fun and relaxation on the shores of Lake Conroe.
