True to George Mitchell’s vision, The Woodlands has become a self-contained city – a place to live, play, work and worship. On offer is an enormous range of choice for dining and shopping, including some of best known names in cuisine and some of the fashion world’s most luxurious brands. And as the name suggests, there are endless hiking trails, parks and recreational facilities and a calendar of regular sporting, entertainment and art events. There are places of worship representing a wide range of religious beliefs. Add to all that a comprehensive selection of medical facilities and the greatest challenge to living in The Woodlands is finding a reason to venture outside of this tree-lined paradise.
