The Highly-Walkable Downtown Area
The Woodlands was before its time! This community’s original design originated in the 1970s and emphasized the importance of preserving the area’s natural beauty. As part of this green effort, both the individual villages and the downtown area are a walker’s paradise! Take a leisurely stroll down Market Street to get acquainted with the small-town charm of the downtown area or relax on a water taxi as you enjoy the lovely landscaped shore and the gentle waters. If you’re venturing very far from your lodgings, The Woodlands also offers a popular trolley system.
World-Class Shopping and Dining
As you explore Market Street, you’ll soon discover exactly how it earned it’s very appropriate name! Although every village includes a central shopping complex, Market Street is special. This area is home to over 80 shops and restaurants. You’ll no doubt see a few familiar names, but many boutiques are one-of-a-kind specialty shops that can’t be found elsewhere. Get creative at TATTU Denim by Design, an area favorite, by designing a unique pair of jeans or a t-shirt to take home! Depending on your sense of style, you can even wear them later that evening to the Grotto, a very elegant, and romantic, Italian restaurant.
A Wide Array of Cultural Events
With over 100 nationalities represented in The Woodlands’ permanent population, everyday brings exciting exposure to a wide array of cultures! Of course, the opportunities don’t stop there. The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, the best outdoor venue in America, plays host to headlining acts of all genres, and a variety of art and cultural festivals are held in other areas throughout The Woodlands. From a classic symphony to a rock concert to the International Winter on the Waterway Festival, there’s never a boring day in The Woodlands!
