Spring Things to Do

  • Civil War Museum (Don't Fall For It!)

    Hysterical Event: So, I took off a day of work because I hadn't done any exploring for a while and wanted to do something simple. I planned a short visit to Old Town Spring but, unfortunately, the weather was not on my side. As I dragged myself out of the house I decided to do three things: visit the visitors center, the Civil War Museum, and then...

  • Old Town Spring

    4 out of 5 stars

    The Old Town of Spring, Texas is still alive with the old houses turned into quaint shops and specialty stores. The prices are quite high but it's especially fun around Christmas time to see the place decorated and hopping with busy shoppers. I like to go on quiet weekends to visit the local businesses and shop for one-of-a-kind gifts. Old Town...

  • Movie Tavern

    Going to the movies these days has definitely changed. Now you can sit in a make-shift movie restaurant. The food is amazing and it's a great date idea! When you find your theatre you choose your seat and a waitress takes your order. If you need service during the movie you flick a small red light on and services comes right to you! There's even...

  • Chuck E Cheese

    ITZ is a "family fun center" that recently opened off of I-249 and FM 1960. Mostly made up of ill-mannered children and birthday parties it's fun to go to if you have small kids. To get in the door you have to buy a $10 buffet and you can buy your token cards there. Spend as much as you want on those! You can load all the money you want to on a...

  • Visitors Center

    I like visiting the visitors center if I can, when I travel to a new location. However, the woman looked at me very strange when I went into the Spring Visitors Center and told her that I lived in Spring. From outside, the place looks very inviting. It looks like an old house, and still feels that way upon entering. There was a little kitchen with...

  • The Woodlands Mall

    The main "hub" of the city is centered around the mall. A very large movie theater is across the street as well as over 30 places to eat. The mall is really good. All of the regular department stores plus some really cool local shops, including local art dealers. During the holidays, the mall erects the largest ice-skating rink in Texas. I know...

  • Cynthis Woods Pavillion

    The Cynthia Mitchell Woods Pavillion is an AWESOME plcae to see a concert! This place brings in the biggest names in entertainment... Santana, Paul McCartney, Jewel, etc., etc. Every type of music, every type of entertainer plays here. Not only the names make this place great, though. What does is the super cool set-up. As you can see in the...

  • Forest Oaks Community Park

    Sandy and I got up early in the morning and took a walk in the Forest Oaks Community Park. There was hardly anyone there, and the weather was still nippy (it was December after all).We took the trail circling the lake, which has nice views of the park, the lake and the nearby residences.Everything was so peaceful, so serene... This park is an...

Spring Restaurants

  • Favorite Sandwich

    Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it. It's a place where you order at the counter, then wait for your food and pick it up when they...

  • BBQ That Supports Texas

    Since I do love travelling and trying new restaurants in the area, I joined a group called Go Texan. It supports local restaurants (not many chains) that use produce and meats that are grown in Texas. So each year they have an Eating Out Week where they will put out a list of Go Texan restaurants in your area. There were only 2 restaurants in my...

  • Crappy Pizza But Heck of a Good Time

    So Myspace Local has really got me trying other places around town and I have to say it's quite the adventure! I found Rigia's on ML and checked out their website. They said they were famous for their 30'' pizza. For some reason I thought a large pizza was like 24''...boy was I wrong! When we went to pick it up...thank god I was in my mom's truck...

  • Great Steak and Salmon!

    When Saltgrass first started expanding their franchises I hated steak. Yea, yea, I wasn't even a teenager though. So I started with the kids menu and have worked myself up to the best steak in the place.The restaurant is authentic country Texas. The decor ranges from televisions with the game on, deer heads, bear heads, license plates and other...

  • Organic Pizza

    I'm not going to lie, I was a bit nervous coming here. My family gave me this perception that "organic" meant worms in your apples and nasty tastes. But, Pizza Fusion has completely blasted that misconception out of the water.This completely organic restaurant is some of the best pizza I've had. The atmosphere is very chic and my mom and I had a...

  • Awesome Burgers!

    I learned about Wunsche Bros. while I was exploring Old Town Spring. They had a small magazine and I saw the advertisement. My mother had known about the restaurant and had eaten there many times. Their claim to fame is that the business has been opened since 1902. First opened as a hotel and saloon the place has a loyal fan base and for good...

  • Old Town Spring Coffee (Pass...)

    I saw the ad for this place in the Old Town Spring magazine put out by the visitors center. As soon as you drive into OTS you will see it on the right. I decided to stop in on a Tuesday because there was close parking and I could always use some coffee.The shop, itself, some crafty things. You know the coffee cups with silly sayings on them and...

  • Good Home Cookin' and Breakfast

    Many of my friends and family love the cracker barrel. It has a laid back, southern home feel that is apparent as you walk up to the white rocking chairs on the porch waiting area. It's usually busy all morning and has a constant flow of customers all day long. I've eaten both meals and breakfast here and find it disappointing. The only thing I've...

  • Lively Tex Mex

    After a long hiatas from this restaurant I'm back to being a lover. A lover of the strong margaritas. A lover of the flautas. A lover of the made-in-the-restaurant (in front of the customers) tortillas. A lover of the queso. A lover of the laid back atmosphere...A bit weary of the wait, still. However, I'm gonna keep my original review because it...

Spring Nightlife

  • Sunday Night Kareoke

    On Sunday nights my friends and I regularly appear at Acadia's kareoke. The guy who runs it is kind of obnoxious and it gets a bit inappropriate but it's fun nonetheless. You can sing about anything. They usually have $2-3 you-call its all night and $5 pitchers from open to close (on Sunday!). They also offer Texas Hold 'Em tournaments Sunday early...

  • Laid Back Bar

    Olde City Pub is a laid back Irish pub/bar. It has private rooms, a great outdoor bar, darts, and pool tables. A lot of people from my old high school tend to come here. Great place to go when the weather is nice. Hours: Daily 11am-2am Jeans....nice shirt

THey have karaoke and a live band on saturday. If you would like to see some colorful and friendly people head on over to the Parrot Pub. Whatever you want

    Willowbrook Mall has come a long ways in the last decade. They are putting new stores in all the time. They have a good food court. You're going to run into a bunch of well-off teenages here that are not always respectful but if you're looking for a fun place to hang out this might be for you.Mall HoursMonday-Saturday: 10:00am-9:00pm Sunday:...

  • Klein, Texas

    Inside the Spring limits is Klein. It's the district I went to school in and loved. Not until I started traveling did I notice that Klein High School is the sight of a Historical Marker. Klein began as a farming market made up of German immigrants (you'll notice the names of streets and schools) in 1845. Although it was never named a city it was...

Spring Favorites

  • San Antonio Riverwalk... Watch out!

    Something new that is under construction, but that should be finished in the next couple of months, is a new Riverwalk. It is being designed after the famous one in San Antonio. It is, of course, right along side the mall and Landry's Seafood house. It should be really beautiful after completion. Yes, I hopped another fence... This one was smaller...

  • Is everybody rich around here?

    This community has money, thats all I have to say. Everything is, and has to be, perfect. All of the stores are not visible from the roads that access them. It is mandated that there be trees blocking the view. It is to prevent the city from looking too cluttered! It can make your way finding things pretty maddening, but it does add to the beauty...

  • Are we in Canada?

    So, the first time I am visiting here, we go to the mall. As we are driving through the parking lot for the better part of a half hour, I turn to see a big horses face in the window! Atop it is a red-uniformed cop. Am I in Canada? Are the mounties here to save us from some terrible massacre? NO! It is the saviors from above... the Woodlands...
