Tourism in The Woodlands is often directly connected to the major employers
in the area. The Woodlands serves as headquarters to several large international corporations such as Anadarko Petroleum, Hewitt Associates, Baker Hughes and Huntsman Company to name just a few. Many corporate visitors come into Houston for meetings and seminars taking place in The Woodlands.
The Woodlands Convention and Visitors Bureau (TWCVB) plays a key role in bringing visitors to this area. TWCVB drives demand for The Woodlands as a travel destination and creates new revenue for local business. Tax revenue generated by the tourism industry is invested back into improving The Woodlands' infrastructure and programs.
But you don't have to be from out of town to take advantage of all the great dining
The Woodlands has to offer. Residents throughout the greater Houston area find The Woodlands to be the perfect place for great shopping whether it is at The Woodlands Mall
, Market Street
or in the boutique shoppes in the surrounding area.
TWCVB continues to develop, produce, and support key signature events that promote and highlight The Woodlands community. During the holiday season The Woodlands is a key destination for families to enjoy holiday decorations, lights, ice skating and festive activities throughout the month of December.
