The Woodlands was listed at #14 in Forbes' list of the Top 25 Best Places to Move in the country in its July 7, 2009 online edition. Although seven other Texas communities were included, The Woodlands was the only Houston-area community to make the list.

Factors measured included population growth, people in executive and professional jobs, family incomes, and the price, age, and size of homes, along with reports of moving van companies, changes in school enrollments, the observations of local builders, government officials and residents, and the proximity of multinational companies.

Co-Presidents of The Woodlands Development Company, Tim Welbes and Alex Sutton, stated, "The Woodlands is ideally situated in one of the most stable markets in the country, and we have always made job creation a top priority. This is why companies like Anadarko Petroleum, CBandI, Chevron Phillips Chemical, Huntsman, Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Tetra Technologies, US Oncology and Woodforest National Bank have brought their corporate headquarters here. Everything is in place to attract major employers, including easy access to downtown Houston and a major airport, a wide selection of homes, top-ranked public and private schools, outdoor recreation, shopping, dining, entertainment and medical care.""

Chairman of The Woodlands Township, Nelda Blair, said ""Recognition by a media outlet such as Forbes clearly illustrates that The Woodlands has become known as a very desirable place to live, work and visit. The Woodlands has long been a premier place for quality of life. With this kind of exposure, the rest of the world is learning just how special The Woodlands has become.""
