Just a few short weeks ago, you were longing for summer to start. You were craving the relaxed pace and more family time. Yet now that July has arrived, everyone is hot and bored!
In less than a forty-five minute drive, the Woodlands Resort can solve your problems. Cool off in the beautiful pools and be entertained by a wide variety of fun activities. In one afternoon, the kids in our group got their faces painted, created paper crowns, threw water balloons, sang karaoke, and ate snow cones. Did I mention they also went swimming and slid down the two-story water slides?
The adults listened to live music by the pool and snacked on tasty boiled shrimp and Shiner beer. We all enjoyed s’mores at the fire pit and the dive in movie. Dinner at the Cool Water Café satisfied every appetite.
The athletically inclined can play golf on the two championship golf courses or play tennis on a variety of playing surfaces. For those interested in food and shopping, nearby Woodlands Town Center and Market Street offer plentiful dining and retail destinations.
Families with young children will prefer to stay in the newer Fairway Pines section of the Resort. You will be right by the all the action at the Forest Oasis Waterscape, and trips back to the room for naps or extra goggles will be quick and easy.
Those preferring a more serene experience can opt to stay in the Forest Lake area. The rooms feature balconies overlooking the woods. You will be near the full service spa and Woodlands Dining Room, which serves a delicious and reasonably priced Sunday brunch in addition to lunch and dinner.
The walk between the two areas only takes a few minutes, and you can usually find a friendly staff member to take you by golf cart.
Not sure you can make it this summer? Be sure to put it on the calendar for 2014. The Woodlands Resort is adding more guest rooms, a lazy river and a Texas style steak house. It’s an oasis of fun just minutes away!
