Explore the tree canopies at Brazos River Park with Go Ape Sugar Land.

This past weekend, I went on a trip to Sugar Land, a city as delightful as its name suggests, and the sweet memories will linger for a long time. Let me tell you guys about it.

Did you know that Sugar Land got its name because it was originally a sugar plantation and subsequently the home to a sugar cane refinery named Imperial Sugar



My weekend began at the heart of Sugar Land, with dinner at Jupiter Pizza & Waffle Co. Tucked in the bustling town square, Jupiter Pizza boasts an eclectic menu where can savor handcrafted pizzas and craft beers. We also enjoyed their pizza while enjoying live music at the town square.

We then made our way to the Sugar Land Space Cowboys game. This was not just any game; it was Fireworks Friday. Watching the Space Cowboys secure their win against a backdrop of jaw-dropping fireworks bursting in the night sky was the perfect way to begin my Sugar Land weekend.

I stayed at the Houston Marriott Sugar Land, which was conveniently located right in the town square. This bustling hub brims with an array of shops and restaurants, offering everything you need within a short stroll. This was such an ideal spot for a hotel!



Saturday was packed with exciting adventures, started with Go Ape Zip Line and Adventure Park nestled in the beautiful Brazos River Park. I navigated the treetop obstacle courses and zipped through the canopy; the adrenaline rush was complemented by the stunning views of the river.

After such an eventful morning, I treated myself to a delicious lunch at Pacific Coast Tacos. Their unique spin on classic tacos, paired with a refreshing margarita, was the perfect midday fuel. I highly recommend getting their tsunami fries. The remainder of my afternoon was spent shopping at the Sugar Land Town Square.

Dinner at State Fare Kitchen and Bar was a feast for the senses. Their southern-inspired menu boasts a variety of delicious options, offering the comfort of home cooking with the sophistication of modern cuisine.



Now, the finale of the weekend was “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Concert” performed by the illustrious Houston Symphony at the Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land. A nostalgic and unique experience where the symphony played the score live as the novel screened, this performance brough a cherished childhood story in such an enchanting way. I highly recommend this.

To end the day on a high note, I headed to Heaven in a Jar, arguably one of the best dessert spots I’ve had. Their over-the-top, candy-covered milkshakes are also so photo worthy and just as delicious as they look. What a way to end a “sweet” weekend in Sugar Land!

To conclude, a weekend in Sugar Land is a tapestry of diverse experiences. From thrilling games and outdoor adventures to mouth-watering meals and spellbinding symphonies, Sugar Land truly has something for everyone. So, if you are looking for a destination for your next weekend trip, consider Sugar Land – where every day is as sweet as sugar.
