Discover exciting things to do in The Woodlands

Unpack your bags in your hotel room at the Country Inn & Suites and head about two miles south to explore The Woodlands, a planned community surrounded by forestland. Kayak along The Waterway, or head to The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion for a great concert. If you’re looking for a big-city experience, drive about 45 minutes south into downtown Houston, where you can visit the Children’s Museum of Houston and the Houston Zoo. If you need to catch a flight, our hotel is just 22 miles from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).
