For a really fun September event for the family, catch a show at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and book a night’s stay at the new Westin at The Woodlands.  The Westin is within walking distance to the pavilion, and if you make a night of it, try the restaurant CURRENT before heading over.  Coming up for the tweens is Fifth Harmony playing on Labor Day, September 5th.  Or, if you prefer to leave the kids at home and make it a date night with your significant other, catch the Goo-Goo Dolls or Counting Crows later in the month. Close out the night by taking a dip in the infinity pool of the second level!
