Ranked the #1 city in America to live, visitors find The Woodlands is a destination they want to return to often. A destination whose offerings and culture rival the nation’s most buzzed about larger cities, The Woodlands is a place designed for great experiences—from beautiful nature to top-tier amenities, globally-ranked venues to hidden gems. Aptly named The Woodlands for its development in and around 28,000 tree-filled acres, The Woodlands is just a short drive from many of the large Texas cities people love to escape from for the weekend.

Experience a fist-pumping night of live music at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, one of the top-ranked amphitheaters in the world, and host to some of the biggest names in music.
