Named for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, which was commonly referred to as the K-T, Katy has a population of 12,000 people and is located outside Houston. Also playing into the name is Cane Creek, which runs through Katy and was the original name of the town. It was famous for sugar cane in the 19th Century and today has an annual festival in honor of the crop.
While you will be able to get around some parts of the city by foot, a car is a must for day-to-day duties. The good news is that because of Interstate 10 running through the city, you can get almost anywhere in a matter of minutes.
