Spring TX is an area located along I-45, about 20 miles north of Houston. Most of Spring is in unincorporated Northwest Harris County but part of Spring extends in to unincorporated Montgomery County. Spring TX does not have official boundaries since it is not incorporated; there is not an actual town of Spring TX. The area is close enough to Houston to be able to enjoy the amenities but far enough away to still feel like you are in the country. It is very accessible to the amenities of the Woodlands.
