Sugar Land

I had written off Sugar Land as a drab suburb of Houston, but I was proved very wrong. The downtown area of Sugar Land is walkable and boasts a plethora of dining and shopping options.

Town Square

The best feature of Sugar Land is the town square. It's made entirely of turf and has a variety of seating options. While we were there over a weekend, there was nonstop action: a country band on Friday night, a car show Saturday morning, a market that afternoon, and a movie at dusk.

Jupiter Pizza & Waffles Co.

What more could you want than pizza AND waffles? They have a number of gourmet waffle options It's located in the town square.

Sugar Land Space Cowboys

This is the Triple A affiliate of the nearby Houston Astros. We didn't get a chance to catch a game but hope to soon.
