The last time you decided to “wing it” on vacation, things flew off the handle. Unwittingly participating in a Bedouin wedding ceremony in Jordan made your hair smell nice, but you almost ended up in a commuter marriage. This time around, take it easy in The Woodlands, Texas—a meticulously planned district located just 30 miles north of downtown Houston. Relax by a pristine lake, enjoy concerts on the lawn, and eat burgers the size of the “Lone Star State.” When you aren’t floating through life or taking a food tour, put your feet up in your pick of hotels in The Woodlands, TX.
You’ll find many of The Woodlands hotels east of Lake Woodlands, which is also where you can get a head start on slowing down on the Woodlands Waterway Trolley. The trolley is a great way to get the lay of the land—and canals. After passing by some delicious kitchen smells, go on a food foray along Waterway Avenue and graze on Texas barbecue, gourmet burgers, and elegant Asian fusion. Make it a dinner and show night with a community concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion—international headliners regularly take the stage, so plan ahead, so you don’t end up missing the comeback tour of your all-time favorite band. To see some local favorites, wander over to Market Street for people-watching and brilliant busking.
When urban nightlife calls your name, pick up your rental car in The Woodlands, take a drive up to the big city, and settle in Uptown for after-hours fun. Check in at one of our Houston hotels, but get back to The Woodlands in time for a morning hike in George Mitchell Nature Preserve.
