THINGS TO DO IN THE WOODLANDS
As you wander through the villages of The Woodlands, you’ll notice each community’s unique character and premier amenities. Town Center is essentially the downtown area of The Woodlands with over 1,000 acres of fine dining, shopping and entertainment. Brimming with exceptional restaurants and high end boutiques, residents and visitors from surrounding areas gravitate here to enjoy a wide array of amenities, including The Woodlands Mall, The Woodlands Waterway, Market Street, and The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, a world-class concert venue that regularly features some of the biggest talents in the music industry.
There’s no shortage of nightlife in the Market Street area, with so many exceptional and modern restaurants and bars that create a very hip and urban downtown vibe. Plan a fun evening out with the girls or a special date night complete with a romantic after-dinner stroll by the waterway.
For those who enjoy an active lifestyle, there are plenty of activities in The Woodlands, from sporting events and boating to cycling and afternoons out on the links. Head over to Riva Row Boat House to kick off an afternoon of kayaking down the lower waterway up to Lake Woodlands or join any number of cycling groups and explore the George Mitchell Nature Preserve. Avid runners can sign up for the Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Texas triathlon which draws thousands of competitors and spectators from around the globe to North Shore Park in The Woodlands. Golf enthusiasts will also love life in The Woodlands as its home to some of the best golf courses in Houston, including the The Player Course at The Woodlands Country Club, the Augusta Pines Golf Club and the Nicklaus Course at Carlton Woods.
