The Houston Experience

Woodland Lakes is just 30 miles away from the great city of Houston, where there is always something going on! Take some time to have the Houston experience; a real taste of Texas!


Alley Theater is a local favorite, founded over 60 years ago, where you can find shows like A Christmas Carol and the Santaland Diaries. This theater is considered one of Houston’s architectural landmarks, and is one of the few American Theatre companies that assist a company of actors and designers throughout the year.


Bisong Art Gallery hosts several exhibits, book signings, film screenings, and lectures. This intriguing warehouse space is located downtown, in the Warehouse District, and is open to the public. Exhibits include acrylic, oil paintings, mixed media, and hand blown glass, among other art styles. Art lovers are always encouraged to purchase their favorite pieces!


You must stop at Minute Maid Park for a baseball game! It is, after all, America’s favorite pastime. The Houston Astros are killing it this season, bringing the team back to the top in the American League. They even beat the Yankees this week 15 to 0! Aside for the exciting sport, the ballpark has several different restaurants and lounges that are perfect for a night out, or to just grab a drink for happy hour.


Lastly, we strongly suggest taking a tour with Buffalo Bayou Kayak Tours. Enjoy some fun in the sun as the weather cools off a bit and a slight fall breeze makes its way into Texas. The Buffalo Bayou Partnership puts together various events throughout the year, and kayak trips are offered once a month. Don’t worry, all equipment is supplied for you!
