Editor’s Review of The Woodlands Resort

Just outside of Houston, and a quick drive from George Bush Intercontinental Airport awaits the Woodlands, a 28,000-acre forest preserve featuring a family-friendly resort, shopping, golf and waterscape. The Woodlands offers more than 1,500 guestrooms in resort and boutique properties, with premier accommodations in the Woodlands Resort, where the main feature for children (or at least my own and the crowds of weekend families packing the area) is the Forest Oasis Waterscape. The resort completed a $75-million renovation in late 2014, renovating all guest rooms and adding new rooms and suites.

Market Street's Main Street-style shopping and entertainment district gives families a city vibe when relaxing at the resort needs an
... more extra boost (doubtful). The Woodlands also provides 180 miles of hike and bike trails, kayaking adventures along the Woodlands Waterway, 116 forested parks, the 200-acre Lake Woodlands, annual festivals, and an array of budget-friendly activities.

You'll be hard-pressed to leave the Woodlands, which is truly a destination resort for family vacations. less

Love the new lazy river!

The waterpark was great before the renovation, but now that it is done, it's AMAZING. My son especially loves the lazy river and the underwater scavenger hunt. I love that they bring you frozen grapes while you are lounging ...

Families can select from Fairway Pines, overlooking the Forest Oasis Waterscape; Forest Lake Rooms, about five minutes from the waterscape; or Executive Suites, overlooking the Panther Trail Golf Course.

We elected to be closest to the Waterscape, limiting our room option to a double bed room that accommodates up to four. For more room, select the suites, which feature a king-sized bed, as well as a separate living area with fold-out couch. The suites also provide a kitchen with mini-fridge and microwave, so you can enjoy some meals at "home." All rooms include coffee makers and high-speed Internet. Smoking is only permitted in Forest Lake Rooms, so select the Pines or Suites for non-smoking only rooms.
