Spending time in Sugar Land doesn't mean you have to spend a ton of money. Actually, some of the best events and attractions will cost you absolutely nothing!
Sugar Land Town Square can arguably be called the heart of Sugar Land. This vibrant venue located in Sugar Land's downtown district is made up of residential, commercial, retail and dining destinations. Sugar Land Town Square has something for the entire family to enjoy! Now if you stop in at any of the local shops or restaurants, there's definitely some money-handling involved, but if you're looking for a cost-free evening or weekend out, look no further than one of Sugar Land Town Square's various FREE events. Grab a lawn chair or picnic blanket and enjoy live music, a movie on the big screen and everything in between!
If the great outdoors is more up your alley, Sugar Land has over 2,123 acres of developed park land. Oyster Creek Trail which allows you to enjoy two parks in one trail route, Oyster Creek Park and Lost Creek Park , provides some Instagram-worthy backdrops. Or maybe you prefer being on the water? If so, glide onto Brooks Lake with your canoe or kayak as it winds around the urban scenery. Lastly, shake up your typical trail routine and hit the grinds at City Park or one of Sugar Land's pump tracks.
You can appreciate great local art at the Sugar Land Art Center & Gallery where local and nationally acclaimed artists showcase their pieces along the gallery walls. You may even be lucky enough to observe an artist's work-in-progress as this site is also a working studio. The range in technique and expression at this hidden gem is so satisfying to behold.
Travel back to a time when you could go to the boarding gates without a ticket and watch airplanes take off from the runway. Well, that's exactly what you can do when you visit Sugar Land Regional Airport. Spend an afternoon at the airport's observation area and use it as some personal time to reflect or do some plane-watching. Add a few kids into the mix and watch the fun soar!
Sugar Land is known for it's one-of-a-kind annual events and the best part is they're all FREE! Marvel as colorful kites flood the skies during the annual Cultural Kite Festival in the spring. Celebrate America's independence at the Star Spangled Spectacular with games and a boom-tastic fireworks finale in the summer. Greet the holiday season with Santa and a 40 foot Christmas Tree at Tree Lighting in the Plaza and countdown to New Year with a state-of-the-art 3D Projection Show during New Year's Eve on the Square in the winter.
