National Travel & Tourism Week

MAY 7 - 13, 2023

Each May, the tourism industry comes together to celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week. As the Official Destination Marketing Organization of The Woodlands, Visit The Woodlands takes the lead in highlighting the incredible efforts of our local tourism and hospitality community and by spreading awareness of the importance of travel to our local and regional economy.



Celebrate the power of tourism with Visit The Woodlands! We will be at Market Street on Thursday, May 11, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the Spring Concert Series. Stop by for popcorn from The Candy House, a long-time favorite in The Woodlands, and pick up a coloring page or a postcard that you can send to friends and family members. Learn more.


National Travel & Tourism Week is the perfect time to explore The Woodlands! Climb to new heights at Texas TreeVentures, pedal a swan boat down The Woodlands Waterway, or take a kayak out on Lake Woodlands. Visit The Woodlands is offering $5 off admission for Texas TreeVentures and Riva Row Boat House throughout the month of May. Learn more.
