Named by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of America’s “Coolest Suburbs Worth a Visit,” The Woodlands offers vacationing families and business travelers more than 8 million square feet of shopping, dining, hospitality and entertainment.
Located only 30 minutes north of Houston, The Woodlands is home to four-diamond hotels, world-renowned shopping, award-winning restaurants, fun nightspots, golf, nature trails and more—all nestled among 28,000 acres of forest preserve.
At Market Street, stroll through a Main Street-styled shopping and dining destination, where relaxing music fills the air, eye-catching art abounds and a central park, with an open-grass area, pop fountain and live performance stage provide year-round entertainment. Nearby, The Woodlands mall features more than 180 stores from the most popular names in retail.
The Woodlands also offers dining options to suit any occasion and budget. Dine al fresco, along The Woodlands Waterway®, enjoy cuisine from award-winning chefs at one of the area’s many fine dining spots, casual eateries or cozy cafés.
When the sun goes down, the nightlife in The Woodlands comes alive. At Waterway Square, guests can unwind at Goose’s Acre, a genuine Irish pub that operated in Ireland for 100 years, only to be completely dismantled and resurrected in The Woodlands. Step into style in the 1492 Lounge, enjoy the British-themed Baker St. Pub & Grill or explore the fascinating world of wine at one of several wine bars in The Woodlands.
Regardless of when you visit, there’s a good chance you’ll find great live music at one of the area’s concert venues—from the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion to performances at Waterway Square, Market Street and area cafes and bars. www.VisitTheWoodlands.com.
