Katy Area Chamber of Commerce
Since its founding in the 1890's, the Katy Texas area has been dedicated to a quality of life unsurpassed in this part of Texas.
One of the reasons people love the Katy area is the pleasant subtropical climate. Situated on the coastal plains of Texas, with relative proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, moderate summer and winter low temperature extremes, our winters are mild and our summers warm and humid. Average daily high temperature in the summer is in the low 90's and daily high temperatures in winter average 65 degrees. Gulf winds make summer nights pleasant and snowfall is rare.
Katy, Texas is uniquely located within three counties, Fort Bend County, Harris County and Waller County. We are located approximately 25 miles west of downtown Houston.
Katy Texas is a prime beneficiary of the constantly improving highway network in and around metropolitan Houston. It is strategically located to offer the best of all possible worlds in transportation.
With widespread residential development, there is a large selection throughout the area to live in a safe and secure neighborhood. Housing options range from apartments to small ranches, estate homes and master planned subdivisions. The City of Katy is a zoned community.
