Your first morning in Sugar Land needs to include an epic brunch spread at Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café where you’ll be able to enjoy a sweet and savory variety of crepes, omelets and various espresso drinks. First Watch is a great option if you’re looking for healthier breakfast options like a Superfood Bowl or the Kale Tonic Fresh Juice. If you’re traveling with sports-loving fans and kids then hit up a family-friendly Space Cowboys baseball game at Constellation Field, where families can enjoy more than just baseball! Discover the new family-friendly Kiddie Corral which includes a space-themed playground and a splash pad, the Moonshot Alley, a one-of-a-kind baseball simulation experience for all ages and the Karbach Cantina, a beer garden featuring the best local draft beers and food. Looking for something more relaxing and creative? Try Smashed Clay + Studio and use their two types of pottery to create your masterpiece: use a pottery wheel to mold your creation or smash using colored clay and texture tools to form the clay with your hands.  Leave with a unique cup, planter, bowl, etc. made by you! Book your session before arriving.

Cap off the rest of your evening with a live performance event at Sugar Land Town Square and a delicious slice of pie from a local favorite Jupiter Pizza & Waffles CO. End on a sweet note with a chocolate confection from Kilwin’s with their premium ice cream or their mouth-watering fudge.

Day Two


If you want to sprinkle nature and exercise into your visit, head over to Sugar Land Memorial Park to take on a hike and stumble onto cultural art pieces like the Remembrance Tower or the Veterans Memorial Statue.  You can also visit our kid-friendly parks for a picnic or if the little ones want to run or swing on the monkey bars. Refuel afterward at TOAST for their beloved fusion of croissants and donuts: the Kronut, Grilled Veggie Toast and indulgent Iced Vietnamese Coffee.

On the go? Grab some massive breakfast tacos at Torchy’s Tacos to continue your Sugar Land adventure! Spend the afternoon at the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land and explore their permanent exhibitions and seasonal attractions like the Augmented Reality and Hall of Paleontology.  Buy your tickets before your visit.

For dinner, try one of our fusion restaurants: Pacific Coast Tacos. Start with their Yellowfin Nachos, with an Asian spin on an American favorite with hints of citrus soy and chili lime aioli. For your entrée, you can’t go wrong with their extensive array of tacos, rice and noodle bowls and colorful cocktails.
