Live, Work, and Play in League City

The secret is out! League City is a great place to live, work, and play. Once a small bedroom community, we are now approaching a population of 112,000, and new families continue to move here each year for our affordable housing, recreational opportunities, and for the high-quality public education provided by the Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD).

CCISD teachers are the backbone of League City, and we are honored that so many of you choose to live in our community and raise your own children. We hope you consider calling League City home, but if you don’t, you can still take advantage of all that we have to offer. Our sweet slice of the Gulf Coast includes lakeside sunsets, gorgeous sailboats, fresh seafood, lush subtropical beauty, fascinating history, and all the laid-back leisure of life along the creek.
