The Woodlands is a unique place with many activities and things to do. The city is located in the scenic Houston area and has a lot of amazing outdoor activities.
So whether you are visiting or planning on visiting soon there is so much out here for you to enjoy, however, sometimes it’s hard to think of something on the spot. So I thought I’d compile a list of some fun, family day trips to check out!
Market Street: This classy outdoor space has a multitude of shops, both high end & affordable ones. There are quite a few great restaurants, all with ample patio space to enjoy the weather and views. They also have a large green space for adults to relax & kids to play, and a water fountain for splashing around on hot days. The green space hosts many different local events.
Location: 9595 Six Pines Dr, The Woodlands, TX 77380, United States
Rob Fleming Aquatic Center: This water park is so much fun and has really great prices. At $18 for adults & $10 for kids, you can enjoy a lazy river, pools, multiple water slides, and wide open green spaces for running around. Rob Fleming Park is right next door and has a huge stone & wood pavilion, multiple picnic tables with barbecues, and playgrounds, and overlooks a small lake.
Location: 6535 Creekside Forest Dr, The Woodlands, TX 77389, United States
The Woodlands Waterway: The waterway hosts a variety of activities to enjoy that you could easily spend your day doing. There’s amazing shopping, dining, and entertainment on Waterway Square & Hughes Landing. Or you can opt to rent kayaks, paddle boards, swan boats, or water bikes at Riva Row Boat House & Lakes Edge Boat House and really explore The Waterway.

Concert In The Park – Each season, you can enjoy a free outdoor concert series at Northshore Park in the Woodlands. Bring blankets, food, and the whole family to this seasonal musical program open to all music lovers.
Location: 2505 Lake Woodlands Dr, The Woodlands, TX77381
The Woodlands Farmers Market: I know a farmers market probably doesn’t sound very exciting, but I can assure you this one is so much fun. Not only do they have a gigantic selection of farm-grown & homemade goods, but they also have live music, food trucks with amazing food & drinks, and it’s dog friendly. It’s open every Saturday and definitely worth the trip.
Location: 7 Switchbud Pl, The Woodlands, TX 77380, United States
Texas TreeVentures: If you’re looking for a more exhilarating day trip you’ll definitely want to try out this areal adventure course submersed in the woods of the George Mitchell Nature Preserve. There are 72 challenging elements spread throughout 3 levels in the trees, and you can even host parties or rent tree houses to relax in while you’re there.
Location: 6464 Creekside Forest Dr, The Woodlands, TX 77389, United States
The Woodlands Resort – Escape to a true oasis in the woods: The Woodlands Resort. The drive up the tree-lined path, through a championship golf course, to this resort on Lake Harrison sets the tone for a fun-filled, relaxing retreat. Spread across the resort grounds studded with lagoon-style pools, you’ll find plenty of meeting space, multiple restaurants, bars, and a lazy river. The Woodlands Resort—your private paradise—is popular for destination conferences and retreats and makes for a great family vacation as well.
Location: 2301 North Millbend Drive, The Woodlands, Texas, 77380
