Market Street


I and many of the residents of The Woodlands love to go to Market Street, it is just so nice to have this close at hand. A great place to meet friends for a lunch or dinner with several really nice restaurants there. I like to go to watch a movie with some friends and then go over to Tommy Bahamas for dinner on the Veranda. The best thing about living in The Woodlands is you never run out of things to do. Located across the street from The Woodlands Mall, Market Street is bounded by Lake Woodlands Drive, Lake Robbins Drive, Grogan’s Mill Road and Six Pines Drive.  Market Street attracts visitors from all over the area to stroll along. It often has a vacation feel to the area as you are sitting in the restaurants.

Town Center & Waterway


Town Center brings the urban life style to The Woodlands. Town homes, businesses, water front condos and apartments are within walking distance of shops, theaters, movies and restaurants. This is living where you do not have to bring the car out after you have come home from work and parked it in your garage. You can just walk down the road to the restaurant or the grocery store for the best of city life in a master planned community called The Woodlands. Fountains at Waterway Square is a one-acre public plaza with unique water features and green spaces that serve as the “centerpiece” of The Woodlands. Fountains, lights and music in synchronized choreography will amaze all ages that enjoy the sights of this electronic wonder.

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion


A great place to have here in The Woodlands great entertainment and you do not have to go into Houston, just fifteen minutes to come back home. Young and old are entertained here. From rock concerts, children’s festivals and classical music, there is truly something for everyone here. Diverse, high-quality performing arts events as well as educational events can be experienced here. One year when my son was in Junior High his class went to listen to a concert by the Houston Symphony. We have enjoyed big performers like Cher perform a great show here. Watched the Houston Ballet, listened to the Houston Symphony and Carol King, so quite a mixture of lovely music and dance to make your soul sing!
