Woodforest, the newest Houston master-planned community, is just minutes from The Woodlands, a destination for shopping enthusiasts as well as fun-seekers. With more than 200 stores, The Woodlands Mall caters to a range of buyers, from those looking for everyday items to others looking for something unique. Plus, an array of restaurants — from PF Chang's to Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar — tempt the palate.
Shopping continues at Market Street, an open-air mall featuring dozens of upscale retailers well-suited to outfit a new luxury home in Houston, such as Sur La Table, Smith & Hawken, Orvis, Lilly Pulitzer and Central Market. Coffee shops, cafés and even a chocolate lounge offer a comfortable respite from shopping, while fine dining restaurants promise a special night out.
The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is a one-of-a-kind entertainment venue with a varied concert schedule. Set amid a lush forest, the outdoor amphitheater offers both covered and lawn seating. Approximately 75 events are held during its concert season, ranging in style from rock to classical, jazz to country and modern opera to contemporary American ballet.
