Take a Self-Guided Tour of Katy Texas!

Some people want a self-guided tour of Katy Texas before looking at houses with a REALTOR, so I created this tour to show you around the area. You will start this tour at LaCenterra which is a great place to find a restaurant. Just click each address in the order listed below and Google maps will take you to the featured places in our top Katy neighborhoods. You can click the neighborhood name to see my complete description of that neighborhood.


Use my self-guided tour is also on Google Maps at: https://goo.gl/maps/ru6AP7o7Y8G2. But keep in mind that Google Maps won’t let me save my tour in a specific order, so you should read the Notes section to see the number order…
Try to drive around a neighborhood before moving to the next location on my tour of Katy Texas. Remember that Google Maps can get you back on track no matter where you are located in the neighborhood. 😀


Go to https://goo.gl/maps/ru6AP7o7Y8G2


    1. La Centerra at  23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd, Katy, TX 77494
      This is one of our main shopping and dining areas with fun events on a regular basis. 

    2. Cinco Ranch Beach at  3131 S Lake Village Dr, Katy, TX 77450
      This is the original part of Cinco Ranch and one of the 10 swimming pools you would have access to as a resident of this neighborhood.  

      ⇒ Optional: You may also want to visit: Katy Equestrian Center while you are in this area.

    3. Grand Lakes at S Grand Star, Katy, Texas 77450
      Grand Lakes has an interesting “square” design (see diagram/birds eye) and many great amenities. This location takes you past the dog park, to the neighborhood garden, and one of the several splash pads and parks.

    4. Whole Foods at  6601 S Fry Rd, Katy, TX 77494
      While I’m a dedicated HEB-girl, some of my clients like to know that we have a Whole Foods nearby.  Plus, I want you to drive through this area as you head to the next neighborhood. 😀 

    5. Seven Meadows at  23610 Seven Meadows Pkwy, Katy, TX 77494  
      One of my top-three favorite neighborhoods! Seven Meadows is a smaller neighborhood but is zoned to the best schools in Katy and has excellent access to both Westpark Tollway and Grand Parkway. 

    6. Cinco Southwest at  25202 Springwood Lake Dr, Katy, TX 77494
      This is a newer section of Cinco Ranch. Very pretty except watch out for the line of high-voltage power lines that run through the middle. This area is zone to excellent schools. As you drive from here to Cross Creek Ranch you will see the newest part of Cinco Ranch. 

    7. Cross Creek Ranch at  6450 Cross Creek Bend Ln, Fulshear, TX 77441
      Another of my top-three favorite neighborhoods, Cross Creek Ranch is resort-style living at its best. Make sure you park at the observation tower (welcome center) and walk around “The Hill.”

    8. Churchill Farms at 27618 Briscoe Park Ct, Fulshear, TX 77441
      Churchill Farms is a small, newer neighborhood with beautiful homes built recently and zoned to great schools. 

    9. Pine Mill Ranch at  26810 Pine Mill Ranch Dr, Katy, TX 77494
      Pine Mill Ranch is another smaller, newer neighborhood with recently built homes zoned to great schools.

      Tamarron has a gorgeous entrance (fountain) and resort-style community swimming pool, water park, splash pad, with a view of a lake, dog park and playground. This neighborhood is split between Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated ISD.

    11. Cinco Northwest at Cinco Trace Dr, Katy, TX 77494
      This is part of the newest section of Cinco Ranch and features mostly high-end homes. Even though it is a bit away from “The Beach” and “The Lakehouse,” this neighborhood shares access to ALL of the Cinco Ranch amenities.

    12. Firethorneat 28100 N Firethorne Rd, Katy, TX 77494
      Firethorne is a newish neighborhood with nice amenities and the schools are split between Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated ISD. On the Katy side, this neighborhood is zoned to Katy High School which is usually a 7 on GreatSchools.org (not one of our top high schools).

    13. Grayson Lakes at 2042 Broken Branch Ct, Katy, TX 77494
      Grayson Lakes is built around a small lake, so it has lots of waterfront homes. This is a smaller neighborhood and is zoned to excellent schools.

    14. Woodcreek Reserve at 26604 Kingsland Blvd, Katy, TX 77494
      Woodcreek Reserve is one of the prettiest neighborhoods in West Katy because it was built along a bayou. It is zoned to excellent elementary and middle schools, but also zoned to Katy High School (only a 7 on GreatSchools.org).

    15. Katy Mills Mall at  5000 Katy Mills Cir, Katy, TX 77494
      This is the largest mall in the area and is surrounded by restaurants and other activities. Drive around and take a look! On the south-side you will see new construction for the Katy Boardwalk taking place.

    16. Typhoon Texas Water Park at 555 Katy Fort Bend Rd, Katy, TX 77494
      Kids are always excited to see this awesome waterpark!

    17. Times Square Entertainment at 402 W Grand Pkwy S #110, Katy, TX 77494
      To bring you back around, I wanted you to see this entertainment center. Katy has MANY Fun Things to Do in Katy.


That should be a good tour of Katy Texas…77450 and 77494.
Now you have two options:
  1. There’s more of Katy along I-10 heading into town including even more restaurants and shopping. If you want to try some of our famous Tex-Mex and see this portion of Katy, then head to Pappasito’s (at 10409 Interstate 10 Frontage Rd, Houston, TX 77024) over by City Center.
  2. If you want to see “Old Katy” (the incorporated part of Katy) then head to Mary Jo Peckham Park at 5597 Gardenia Lane, Katy, Texas 77493 and then drive over to the Katy court house at 5432 Franz Rd, Katy, TX 77493. The famous K-T train car is at 5615 1st St, Katy, TX 77493.

How to Schedule a Home Tour with Me


Buying & Selling Real Estate Is a Huge Investment
Don’t You Deserve a Five Star Real Estate Agent?

Sheila Cox

Sheila Cox Realtor
Author of KatyHomesForSaleTX.com…so you know that I know this area! Winner of Five Star award every year since 2010.


Real estate agents don’t “just” sell houses; we sell a SERVICE to effectively guide home buyers and sellers through the entire real estate transaction, which usually takes several months. We are more like real estate consultants than we are salespeople. That’s probably why 86 percent of all home buyers and sellers choose to hire a real estate agent when buying or selling a home!

Buying or selling a home is not like buying or selling a TV, a computer, or a car. You can’t buy/sell a home on the Internet with a couple of clicks. There are MANY legal aspects, deadlines, and requirements that most people are not trained to handle. What’s more…mistakes along the way can cost you thousands and even hundreds of thousands of dollars. The financial risk is much greater than just about anything else you may buy.

That’s why you need your own dedicated, experienced real estate agent
looking out for YOUR best interests.

Video Home Tours—If you or your spouse lives out of the state or country, then you will enjoy my detailed video home tours.

My videos show front and back yards, closets, pantries, laundry rooms, and the garage…as well as the entire home. This gives you a complete picture of the house (unlike those silly Matterports). I also point out any potential defects or deferred maintenance that I see. (view sample video walkthrough)

I’m your transaction manager and will guide you, step-by-step, through the process so you never miss an important deadline. I assist with inspections, repair negotiations, home warranties, HOA compliance inspections, hazard insurance, surveys, appraisals, title commitment, home warranties, title commitment, and more.
