Having fun in “The Sweetest City in Texas” doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. We have done our homework and have scouted the best things to do while visiting Sugar Land for free. Check out the list below for inspiration in how you can have the best time.  

Guests viewing the Historical Timeline


Free Admission 

Ever been curious to learn how Sugar Land got its humble beginnings? Stop by the Sugar Land Heritage Museum and Visitor and travel back in time to learn how it all started. Not only will you learn some interesting stories about Sugar Land, but you’ll also get a chance to snap some photos with a sugar mural, Sugar Land LED letters, and share why travel matters to you. To learn more you can embark on a historical hiking tour, which takes place every second Saturday of the month. (Fees may apply)  

Playing at The Lawn at First Colony


After you’ve spent a few bucks at First Colony Mall head over to The Lawn, a green open space concept. Here families can stop by to relax, play some games, grab a bite at various dining locations, or watch a movie on the big screen. Learn more about other happenings at The Lawn here.  

Veterans Memorial


Sugar Land Memorial Park is another great spot, and who doesn’t love a trip to the park? Take the kids to the playground, visit the Veteran’s Memorial Remembrance Tower, do some exercise on the trail, or go fishing in the lake! Also, be sure to bring your furry pal to enjoy the spacious Pawm Springs Dog Park for a full day of fun in the sun. 

Preparing the airplane


If you or anyone you know loves airplanes, you have to visit the Sugar Land Regional Airport. Bring a snack and head to the patio where you can watch the airplanes take off right before your eyes! For a front-row seat to some airplane action and a relaxing afternoon, this is a must-visit location.  

Plaza Adjacent to Smart Financial Centre


Adjacent to the Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land, is a vibrant plaza with a unique mix of amenities including a beautiful and interactive water fountain, and public art sculptures. Take the kids out to the splash pad this summer and keep cool in the heat! Food truck Fridays also happens here during the summer. You don’t want to miss out!
