Things to Do

See a Show

At The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Looking for something to do at night? Why not see a show at one of the world’s best outdoor amphitheaters, right here in The Woodlands!

Head on over Thursday evening to watch the renowned Principal Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart and The Boston Pops on Tour (a.k.a “America’s Orchestra”) celebrate the music of John Williams, one of the greatest film composers of all time. The evening will feature excerpts from the Williams’ best-loved scores, such as Star WarsHarry Potter and Jurassic Park, as well as some lesser-known gems.

Mezzanine and lawn seating for this event is FREE! No tickets are required. Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. with a variety of pre-concert activities in the North Plaza and the show will start at 8 p.m.

Get outdoors

Get outdoors

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.

The Woodlands is the perfect place to get outdoors! 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 up the challenge and download the Art Bench map here.

Now, if you haven’t quite gotten enough of the great outdoors from all of the previous activities, try out a few of our parks! There is no such thing as too much time outside, right?

 

Have fun

Have fun

Whether you are a workout-aholic or are simply looking for a good movie to check out, don’t miss out on all The Woodlands has to offer.

At Ride Indoor Cycling you have a chance to work off some of that yummy conference food. Not only will you be able to experience an awesome new workout class but it is also free to our conference attendees. That right, FREE!

Need to relieve some stress? Check out Yoga One Studios at Market Street. Did we mention they even have Hot Yoga available?

If workout classes just are not your thing, don’t worry! Sometimes a good old movie theater will do the trick for a night away from conference sessions. Check out Cinemark located right across the street from The Woodlands Waterway Marriott. Mental break here you come!

Shop til you drop

Shop til you drop

Shopping in The Woodlands is an experience in itself. Southern Living Magazine calls us “One of America’s Best Shopping Destinations” and with good reason! With over eleven million square feet of world-class shopping with retailers large and small, The Woodlands is a regional shopping destination providing a blend of top department stores and independent boutiques not found anywhere else. While the majority of our retail activity is located in Town Center, you’ll find a unique mix of locally-owned stores, signature fashion, home furnishings, and restaurants throughout all of The Woodlands. Make sure to check out all that The Woodlands Mall and Market Street have to offer!
