With days full of conference talk and multiple information sessions to sit through, you will need to make an escape and get out in the sunshine for a break. At Riva Row Boat House you can jump in a kayak and leisurely paddle around.

Another great excuse to get out and about is our Art Bench Challenge! Throughout The Woodlands we have fourteen art benches that have been specially created by various artists. The majority of our benches are along The Waterway but there are some that require a little more exploring. Take a picture at all of our featured art benches and email josie.lewis@thewoodlandscvb.com for a special shout out! Download the Art Bench map here.
