Regardless of whether you've chosen The Woodlands as your new home, or have been a long-time resident of this lovely master-planned community, I'm sure you will agree that summer is one of the liveliest times of the year! We thought we would put together a list of some of the exciting things that you and your family can take part in for the last stretch of the season.
1. The Woodlands Waterway Cruiser
The Woodlands Waterway Cruiser is a fantastic way to travel around the center of the town! Explore the scenic waterways and check out the various shops and restaurants, or head to the offices or hotels that line the sparkling corridor. The Woodlands Waterway Cruiser operates predominately on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, though rides will be available on weekdays during specified holidays throughout the year. For those who are looking for a particular occasion, private catering charters are available to reserve for special events, parties, and other personal gatherings.
2. Sneak Away Sunday Nights
There are a range of exciting activities taking place every Sunday until August 24th! Check the Discovery Guide for shopping and dining options on bustling Market Street, or take to the waters on the Riva Row Boat House. Then, why not finish off the summer evening with a glass of wine at one of the downtown restaurants or lounges?
3. Labor Day At Waterway Square
Saturday, the 30th of August will see an extensive range of Labor Day celebrations, right in the center of Waterway Square! Bring your friends and family to check out the live music performances, activities, food, and finally, fireworks! Strolling entertainers will be walking around to tickle your funny bone, alongside balloon artists and face painters.
4. Events At The Woodlands Children's Museum
The Woodland's Children's Museum will be offering activities nearly every day for the month of August, with chances for the little ones to take part in story book theater, shadow puppet theater, mad science, dance lessons, and even field trips! The Museum itself also houses more than 11,000 square feet of interactive, engaging, and educational exhibits and classrooms for the best in hands-on learning. For more information, visit The Woodlands Children's Museum website.
5. Central Park Concert Series
Head to Central Park to enjoy their free summer concerts on Thursday nights from 7.00pm - 9.00pm during the end of July and all throughout August! Why not pack a blanket and settle on the ground and then listen to a different artist each week? Or, head to one of the wine bars or restaurants and enjoy the music from an outdoor patio while the sun sets. Music includes country, classic rock, jazz, pop, and r&b, so there will be something to suit all tastes.
