A lush, self-contained suburban refuge.

Though farther flung from Houston’s dynamic core, the Woodlands is, for many, a welcome escape from all the concrete and highway gridlock that comes with urban living. Its idyllic wooded setting and abundance of upscale amenities continue to draw new residents.

A walkable town center and high-end diversions.

In the Woodlands, most of the action is centered around Town Center, a multi-venue hub of shopping, dining, and entertainment that includes Market Street and the Woodlands Mall. Because it’s not just weary urbanites who are relocating to the Woodlands--many of Houston’s best-known restaurants and shops have opened satellite locations here too.

The many amenities of Lake Woodlands.

Even if you’re not a rower or a kayaker or a sailor, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy Lake Woodlands. The 200-acre waterway is ringed with parks, like Northshore Park, known for its prime picnic spots and al fresco concerts, and Southshore Park, popular with fishing enthusiasts and kids, who come to see the dragon sculpture rising out of the water.
