A gorgeous lake and acres of scenic pine and hardwood forests makes Conroe the place to be for anyone who loves spending time outside. The town’s main attraction is the 22,000-acre Lake Conroe, which offers an idyllic setting for those who enjoy swimming, fishing, kayaking, and boating. Slightly farther to the north, the expansive Sam Houston National Forest affords a peaceful setting for hikers and bikers to experience the sights and sounds of the Texas Piney Woods.
There are two craft breweries in Conroe, B-52 Brewing Company and Southern Star Brewing, and a distillery, Big Thicket Distilling Company, you can visit. For a bit of culture, stop by the Campobella Bronze Fine Art Studio and Gallery to see the works of local artist Craig Campobella, catch a show at either the Owen Theatre or the Crighton Theatre, or watch a local band perform at the Red Brick Tavern or The Corner Pub. Many of the interesting restaurants, shops, and arts venues are located in Historic Downtown Conroe, a district surrounding the Montgomery County Courthouse square.
