Travel Thursday : Sugarland TX

You’d probably expect a place named Sugar Land to put on a sweet and friendly air.
Town-Square

And in this regard, you’d be right on the mark. Our people are the epitome of Texas geniality, welcoming strangers with open doors and genuine smiles.

But in everything else, Sugar Land may throw your expectations for a bit of a loop.

We are no bedroom community, but a city steeped in history. Ours is the story of American industry and Texan ingenuity.
While Sugar Land may have its roots in an agricultural past, our gaze remains firmly affixed on the future. From the performing arts to sports, shopping, dining, and accommodations both luxurious and affordable, you will find Sugar Land more cosmopolitan than destinations many times our size. Every day, every weekend, there is always a new event to enjoy, a new greenspace to discover and a new experience to remember.

And although we are just a few minutes away from the largest city in the Lone Star State, our culture, amenities and attractions are uniquely our own.

Plan your visit to Sugar Land, and experience Texas a little differently from what you’d expect.

Attractions

The sights and sounds of Sugar Land are all around, and our personality is reflected in our attractions. There is
something to peak everyone’s interests; from dinosaur finds to enjoying America’s favorite pastime, Sugar Land
has it all.
