Things to Do in Sugar Land
A Day Trip in Sugar Land
Craving a dose of sweetness in your life? Take a trip down to the "Sweetest City in Texas" – Sugar Land to experience what it has to offer. Located just 20 minutes southwest of downtown Houston we serve up big city amenities with small town hospitality. Let us charm you with this one-day itinerary that may even tempt you to extend your stay.
Begin your day with a nutritious breakfast at one of our mouth-watering brunch spots such as Jupiter Pizza & Waffle Co. and the Toasted Yolk. If you’re conveniently staying at the Sugar Land Marriot Town Square, you’ll be able to walk to most of these restaurants among others located in Sugar Land Town Square. After you are done having brunch, take a stroll around and relax on the plaza, or check out some boutiques that are exclusively located in Sugar Land.
Afterward, get your creative juices flowing at The Artsy Soul and pick from a variety of classes to create a sweet memento of your trip to Sugar Land. Plus, right around the corner, we recommend you indulging in a churro macaron, cookie monster macaron, or simply build your own creation at Stacked Ice Cream.
You are in the “Sweetest City in Texas” why not learn about where it got its name from? Stop by the Sugar Land Heritage Museum and Visitor Center and take a trip down memory lane and learn about our fascinating history. Upon arrival, our Visitor Center Specialists can also help you plan the rest of your day by providing you with a customized itinerary. If you are visiting us on the second Saturday of the month, you can take part in the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation’s Heritage Hike. We strongly, encourage you to sign up and arrive at 10 a.m. to partake in this walking tour, which you’ll walk away with a deeper knowledge and appreciation for Sugar Land’s history and what life was like in a company town. Lastly, admission is free and we have some cool photo opportunities for you to snap away.
To wrap up the day, head to Lake Pointe Town Center and try some amazing food options from Pacific Coast Tacos, Veritas Steak and Seafood to Bonchon. Who doesn’t love tacos? We recommend you try their Asian Pacific inspired tacos that are to die for. Bonchon serves up a variety of flavors on their Korean fusion-style chicken. But, we suggest you try their delicious pot stickers for an appetizer and the soy garlic or spicy wings to go along with it. Before heading back home, make a quick stop at Gigi’s Cupcakes, which is conveniently located within walking distance and order a six-pack of your choice of cupcakes for the road to end your day on a sweet note. We hope you enjoy your visit and come back to see us again soon!
