With plenty of shops, cafes and green spaces you will have many opportunities for fun. Below are just a few suggestions of things you have to try while visiting. Enjoy.


The Woodlands Water Taxi

Dine & Ride – Just the Ticket

The Woodlands Mall has several fantastic restaurants positioned at the end of The Woodlands Waterway. We suggest having a delicious bite and then take a relaxing ride on a Waterway Cruiser. Let the body rest after its indulgence as you relax and enjoy a boat tour along The Woodlands Waterway, a 1.4-mile long corridor.


Wine & Chocolate – Just Divine

Crú is the premier wine bar in The Woodlands. Conceived as an exciting urban destination to experience and explore the fascinating world of wine, with over 300 wine selections and 40 premium wines offered by the glass, as well as taster pairings and wine flights. Wine selections are well chosen and moderately priced.


Crú features wine flight groupings of three wines in ever-changing combinations. We suggest as a late evening treat a wine flight of your favorite combination paired with one of their delectable desserts like the creamy chocolate fondue.
