Welcome to The Woodlands
From a quiet afternoon of kayaking to a fist-pumping night of live music, a hike through the woods to strolling The Waterway promenade, or a round of golf to a roundtable discussion — these are just a few of the ways you can spend a day in The Woodlands. A destination whose offerings and culture rival the nation’s most buzzed about larger cities, The Woodlands is a place designed for great experiences - from beautiful nature to top-tier amenities, globally-ranked venues to hidden gems. Aptly named The Woodlands for its development in and around 28,000 tree-filled acres, this unincorporated, master planned community was founded in 1974 and is located 28 miles north of downtown Houston.
