The Woodlands Travel Guide

Set up a picnic blanket for complimentary music performances, ranging from country music bands to sing-a-longs, on Sunday nights (late spring through early fall) at the central Northshore Park on bank of Lake Woodlands.

Locals take water taxis to get around the Woodlands—the 1.4 mile corridor links restaurants, hotels, offices and shops—but it’s also a fun way to explore the area.

Pick up sweet Sunday dresses by Peaches n’ Cream or Baily Boy’s fun play wear at this grandmother-owned children’s clothing store. Need to keep the kids’ names straight? You can also get items monogrammed.

Dress up as pirates or princesses, make puppets, and learn about countries around the world in workshops at this quirky museum. There are also hands-on exhibits like sandboxes and faux rivers with mechanical fish.
