The Piney Woods of East Texas come alive with the onset of fall and nowhere more so than in Conroe, TX. Cooler temperatures and lower humidity set the perfect backdrop in which to enjoy golfing on one of our championship courses, hike the acclaimed Lone Star Trail, or play witness to the majesty of the migration of numerous species of birds that pass through or set up for the winter here. Thecenterpiece of the area is 22,000 acre Lake Conroe which features the bluest lake water in Texas as well as 156 miles of shoreline. Enjoy a dinner cruise on the regal Southern Empress paddle boat or paddle your own boat with friends with Lake Conroe’s newest attraction, Dryft Cycle Boats.
Stroll the streets of our historic downtown featuring two antique malls, two live performance theatres, art galleries, eateries, and more. Taste and tour at our two local craft breweries, Southern Star and B-52, or our newest local lively libation tour, Big Thicket Distilling Company producing vodka, bourbon, and whiskey. Begin your journey down the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail at Bernhardt Winery or enjoy “Texas’ Only Texas Only Tasting Room” at The Rancher’s Daughter. And no trip to Texas is complete without trying the local BBQ. We’re fortunate to have one of the greats right here in Conroe. Darin McKenzie has been serving up quality BBQ at his family named restaurants for decades.
While you’re here, be sure to relive the rich history of Texas at our Lone Star Monument and Historical Flag Park as well as visit the Heritage Museum for a unique perspective of our local history. Load up the family and take in one of our 24 city parks spread over 390 acres of park land. Visit Conroe and give us a chance to fill up your days and your nights with fall fun and memories that will last a lifetime.
