    Tomball is a town of about 11,000 (up 21% since 2000) located at the intersection of Texas Highway 249 and Farm to Market Road 2920 in Harris County in the Northern Gulf Coast Section of Southeast Texas just 28 miles Northwest of Houston.

    While driving in the Tomball area, you should stop and enjoy the beautiful scenery. You'll be tempted to stare while driving which is dangerous as speeds are fast, except on Main Street (See Warnings)The land in and around Tomball was flat, open plains, just like the buffalo left it, but trees were planted in large numbers, so now the landscape in...

  • Favorite Sandwich

    Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it. It's a place where you order at the counter, then wait for your food and pick it up when they...

  • Burgers and More

    Red Robin's is more famous for their stacked burgers than anything else... However, my mom and I go there for their salads and wraps. I have tried all of their wraps and hard time deciding which one to order each time I go...which is fairly often (sometimes up to once a week).It can be loud in there...Most of the waiters are high school or college...

    Good wholesome food. This location is the latest. It is at the same location as the older & smaller place. This new building is bigger and has a nice wood interior. Prices are moderate. Chicken-fried Steak. This place was proclaimed and advertised as the best chicken-fried steak in Texas. Well, that's quite a statement. Surely, it is among the...

    Confederate Powder Mill site.
    This monument is located in Spring Creek Park near the crater left by the explosion of the gunpowder plant. The plant operated from 1861 till the explosion in 1863. The crater is full of water and looks like an ideal swimming hole but it is fenced-off and NOT safe for swimming.

    Favorite thing: Visit some of the fanastic restaurants!

    Fondest memory: Tomball was settled by German Lutherans and is a conservative, Christian community, which is expanding rapidly. Cattle and oil/natural gas are the big industries, although Compaq is also a major employer.
    Despite rapid growth, Tomball retains a quaint small town atmosphere.
