Plan Your Days

#01 Outdoor Activities

Check out Lake Woodlands by kayak or paddleboard and get a feel for The Woodlands’ winding waterway. Rentals start at $15 for an hour. Learn more about Riva Row Boathouse here.



Men golfing among the trees

If you’re an avid golfer, The Woodlands has a great public course at your disposal. Golf pros and newbies alike can appreciate 18 holes at Panther Trail Golf Course, one of the premiere courses in Texas.



The Woodlands has over 200 miles of hike and bike trails. If you’re doing some light training before the race, check out the running paths along The Waterway. Or, if you’re looking to shake things up, The George Mitchell Nature Preserve is a 1,800 acre forested area for hiking and biking.



#02 Relax

Wrapping up your stay in The Woodlands and looking to work out your sore muscles? Check out a few of the spas around town for a massage before you head out.


#03 Family Friendly

 Are your kiddos coming to cheer you on? Make sure they stop into The Woodlands Children’s Museum for a little excitement of their own! Day passes are a steal at $6.



If you haven’t seen Beauty and the Beast by now, this is the perfect time to escape the heat and hang out with your family before or after the big race. The Woodlands has two theatres in town. Which has the time you’re looking for – Cinemark Market Street or Cinemark 17 and XD?
