Sugar Land has added another top-10 ranking to its long list of accomplishments, this time for being one of Texas’ top 10 suburbs.

The popular Fort Bend municipality ranked No. 9 on’s annual “Best Suburbs to Live in Texas” list. The well-known online review site rated communities based on cost of living, quality of schools, job opportunities, low crime rate and local amenities. notes that the median household income of residents is double the national average at $105,000 per year. The median home value is high with 82 percent of all residents owning their homes. The site awarded Sugar Land “A+” grades for its schools, diversity, job opportunities and family lifestyle.

The high marks are easy to understand. Sugar Land is located 20 miles southwest of downtown Houston and is home to major employers such as Aetna US Healthcare and Fluor Corporation.
