Getting Here

Shenandoah is located about 30 miles north of downtown Houston, the 4th largest MSA in the US, and in middle of the country. As a result, getting to and around our city is a breeze.

Flying? The George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is located 23 miles north of downtown Houston, a short 25-minute drive to Shenandoah.  In 2019, it served more than 45 million passengers.  In 2017, it became the first airport in North America to have non-stop flights to every inhabited continent.  It is headquarters to United Airlines and is its largest hub with more than 800 daily departures, and also serves more destinations (30+) in Mexico than any other US airport. It occupies 10,000 acres and has 5 terminals.  If prefer to fly Southwest Airlines, you would need to fly into William P. Hobby Airport.  In addition to Southwest Airlines, it is also served by American, Delta and Jet Blue.  It is located in southeast Houston, approximately 41 miles south of Shenandoah.  

Driving? Shenandoah straddles I-45, approximately 30 miles north of downtown Houston.  Its great location provides easy access.   I-10 is the US southernmost interstate highway, and crosses the country from East Coast to the West Coast, and it runs directly through Houston, as does Interstate 45 which runs north and south, and connects Houston to Dallas. We’re approximately 3 1/2 hours from Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio and 3 hours from Austin.
