Founded in 1907 along the Trinity & Brazos Valley Railroad line, Tomball remains a destination for visitors looking for large fun in a small town setting—from award winning festivals and unique shopping to mom-and-pop eateries and live music.
Annual events such as the Tomball German Heritage Festival and the Rails & Tails Mudbug Festival are staged through the year, while Texas talent like Larry Gatlin, Roger Creager and others take the stage, performing live at local listening rooms.
In Tomball, which is set 28 miles northwest of Houston, shoppers will find treasure-filled spaces, perfect for unearthing collectibles and antiques, special boutique finds, art and more. And, then there’s the food. It’s no wonder the Travel Channel, The Daytripper and other national media regularly tout Tomball for its stand-out cuisine.
Just beyond the city limits, guests will find more than 40 museums, historic homes and cemeteries, 30 golf courses, a half-dozen craft breweries and wineries, along with hiking and biking trails, parklands and other fun-filled activities.
