Nick Wolda - The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau
The other day I bumped into a friend of mine in Houston. We talked about our daily grind and, at one point, the conversation turned to places to go for a quick, weekend getaway. Of course, I was all too willing to suggest The Woodlands for he and his wife.
Here are my Top 5 "couples" spots in The Woodlands:
#5. The bar at Américas Restaurant in Waterway Square. You'll think you're in New York when you step into this great nightspot. A terrific lounge environment with great music and fun, cabana-like chaise lounges.
#4. The Fountains at Waterway Square. Just steps from Américas, check out the Fountains for its night-lit synchronized water displays. A nice after-dinner treat.
#3. Town Green Park. Right across the street from Market Street, Town Green Park is a great midday spot for a picnic, to read a book or just to relax in the sun.
#2. Jasper's in Market Street. Outstanding cuisine (Executive Chef Kent Rathbun is an Iron Chef America winner and a four-time James Beard Award nominee) and a terrific atmosphere. If the weather is right, ask to dine on the patio.
#1. Crush Wine Lounge. Hundreds of superb wines and an amazing atmosphere have made this the nightspot in The Woodlands. Also offers a great selection of light appetizers . . . located in Waterway Square.
