Visit The Woodlands

1 of 4
In early 2019, Visit The Woodlands developed a new printed piece called the Insider’s Guide. Packed with information about upcoming events, itinerary suggestions and more, this publication features artwork from a local artist. The piece is distributed at Visit The Woodlands’ visitor kiosk inside Market Street as well as to all hotels in The Woodlands and select businesses around town. Shortly after launching the first printed piece, the artwork was repurposed as window clings within Market Street with one window showcasing upcoming events (replaced each quarter). The Insider’s Guide printed piece is produced each quarter with new artwork and content relevant to the season. Finally, the artwork was also repurposed into postcards, which are handed out at the visitor kiosk.

The Insider’s Guide, along with the window clings are meant to provide visitors and locals alike with information about upcoming events and itinerary suggestions. The artwork not only showcases local talent, but also one of the largest collections of public art in Texas, which can be found in The Woodlands all around town.
