Visit to Tomball, Texas

Recently, we spent a few days staying in Tomball, Texas on a Houston business trip, and stayed at the Corral RV Park. Our site was rather nice, which backed up to a wooded area where deer came at night. they also had a nice pond, which allowed fishing, with free access to a local golf course. Free wireless Internet at a fast speed was also available in the recreation room, complete with pool table, ping pong, and vintage video games (including our all-time favorite Galaga). Many of the RVers looked to be fulltime residents. The only drawbacks included the trains blowing as they came through nearby late at night at intersections, a nearby hospital (with ambulance noises), and local construction. They also had coin operated showers, which we haven't seen in awhile. Seeing as how other campgrounds in the Houston area were booked, we came to Tomball. The downtown looked interesting, with antique shops and old buildings. Named after Thomas Ball, the "Father of the Port of Houston," there is an historic log house in town that dates to 1857. "Being near Houston, the sleepy town is being transformed, as new subdivisions and growth is all around. Hopefully, Tomball will be able to keep their original small town appeal that makes it so special. Tomball will celebrate it's 100 year anniversary as a town in December.
