Channelview, TX

Pros: Channelview is a suburb of Houston, with downtown only being 15 minutes away...

Cons: It is near to Equistar and Lyondell which are chemical plants...

This is a good place to raise your family near a large city without feeling like you are in a traffic jam all of the time.

General info: Make sure you know where you are going...
