Celebrate the best of what The Woodlands has to offer this holiday season. From Santa sightings to elf visits, The Woodlands Resort is the next best thing to actually visiting the North Pole this holiday season. Get ready for major holiday spirit as the entire property is transformed into a winter wonderland!

The Resort is decorated for the holidays each year, which includes a 24-foot Christmas tree in the lobby entrance and 800,000 twinkling lights around the property,”  said Wendi Gelfound, Regional Director of Marketing for Howard Hughes Hospitality.

Enjoy a stroll around the property with holiday lights and decorations at every turn. Along with a beautiful winter scene to relish during your visit, The Resort offers events and even the chance to hear from Santa himself!

There is a giant mailbox on display in the lobby for kids to mail letters to Santa. All of the letters that are sent with a valid email address, will receive an email with a reply from Jolly Ole Saint Nick himself,” explains Gelfound.

There are also plenty of spots to take photos with your family and friends, including one new backdrop that is like something out of the holiday movie, ELF.

A new addition this year is a six-foot indoor sleigh built by our engineering team big enough for two adults to sit in, the ultimate selfie spot for the holidays!” said Gelfound.
