The best way to take advantage of the mild weather and abundance of water throughout The Woodlands is to spend the day paddle boarding or kayaking in The Woodlands. Riva Row Boat House, along The Woodlands Waterway, and Lakes Edge Boat House, at Hughes Landing, both offer stand-up paddleboard and kayak rentals for you to enjoy on The Woodlands Waterway and Lake Woodlands. You can also rent swan boats, water bikes, tandem pedal kayaks, and elliptical stand-up paddle boards from Riva Row Boathouse. A group or family of four can fit in a swan boat, which can be used to explore the upper portion of The Woodlands Waterway. And when you’re finished enjoying the water, you’re within walking distance to some of the best attractions in The Woodlands.
