Sugar Land is a great place to raise families - thanks in part to great escapes like the Museum of Natural Science and plenty of outdoor trails and attractions. Explore parks like Oyster Creek Park and Cullinan Park, and participate in activities like bird watching or picnicking with friends. Whether you prefer live music or professional sports, you don't have to go far. Local professional baseball team, Sugar Land Skeeters and the new Smart Financial Center bring top-notch entertainment to the city. For those who enjoy big city amenities, Houston is only a short drive away. Other nearby communities include Richmond and Stafford.
Shopping is located in the heart of the city at First Colony Mall where families can browse department stores and eat at hot spots like Grimaldi's Pizzeria and Black Walnut Cafe. Enjoy family-friendly events year round at Sugar Land Town Square including movie nights, holiday celebration, food festivals, seasonal events and so much more! The square is also packed with a number of quality restaurants like Jupiter Pizza & Waffle Co., Perry's Steakhouse & Grille and countless others.
