Not far from the Woodlands is a completely different sort of getaway destination, a fanciful escape into Texas’s small-town past. Old Town Spring is a restored turn-of-the-century railroad village with cobblestone streets, carriage tours, and arts and crafts shops. The historic community centers on a two-story former hotel and saloon now reincarnated as a restaurant. This weekend you’ll relax country-style at one of the area’s oldest bed-and-breakfast inns, a former family farm, and browse the nearby antiques stores, art galleries, and small museums. To get to Old Town Spring from Houston
, take the Hardy Toll Road north to the FM–1960 exit and stay on the feeder road into town; or take Interstate 45 North to exit 70A, turn east at the traffic light onto Spring-Cypress Road, and follow it 1 mile into town. This chapter is a true insiders’ guide revealing great nightlife, romantic
hotels, intimate dining venues, secluded retreats, and much more.
