Travel Tips for West Columbia
The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
My most recent visit to the Woodlands was to go see Aerosmith and Motley Crue. I love 80's music and haven't seen Motley Crue since the Us Festival back in 1983 (that's 23 years ago!) Last time I saw Aerosmith was at an MTV awards show back in the 80's .
The Pavilion was a great place to see them. We had lawn seats (where patrons sit on the grass, the cheapest seats in the house) but the atmosphere was still great!
The first time I went to here was to see K.C. and The Sunshine band. Gloria Gaynor was also there and she sang "I will Survive". Awesome concert!
"Up and coming! June 24, 2007"
Next concert will be Cyndi Lauper & Debbie Harry. Will be posting more pics soon!
"The First Capitol of the Republic of Texas"
Sounds interesting, doesn't it?
West Columbia was chosen by the founders of the Republic of Texas to be the fledgling nation’s First Capitol. Although that designation only lasted a few months, West Columbia and the surrounding area is truly the birthplace of Texas.
History abounds in the area, from the replica of the First Capitol in downtown West Columbia to the stately Varner-Hogg Mansion , now a part of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
But as proud as West Columbia is of its historical ties, the city is also keeping its focus on present growth and future development.
West Columbia is conveniently located at the intersection of two major highways. Highway 36 is a north-south corridor, while Highway 35 runs east-west.
A city of almost 5,000 people, West Columbia has the charm and easygoing lifestyle of a rural community, but is an easy hour’s drive from Houston and everything a major metropolitan area has to offer.
