People from inside the loop have no intention of visiting SL town center and SL/Katy/woodlands residents dont venture inside the loop unless they need MD Anderson. So it is what it is.

That's so wrong. Most people I know in Sugar Land go inside the loop all the time. My family does so almost every weekend.

Many people live outside the loop because of the affordability and the quality of the public schools. That doesn't mean we don't appreciate museums, theater, great restaurants, urban parks, etc.

Anyway, here's the real Town Center (Town Square)

OK, thanks. I was in that parking lot thinking "this is IT?"

I was in Sugar Land on business but I got down a little early to explore...it's generally not conducive to the kind of tours I do in the city though. That older neighborhood along Main and Wood is an exception. I like it around there.

Now I wanted to ask you guys how often do you and your family visit towncenter? Is it a big part of your family's weekend or something that is nice once a month?

I could see why you would think that... but inner loopers underestimate the need for us suburbanite's to be in on the action even if we live out here.

I'd say two or three times per month...it is more fun for me to explore new areas of town than to go to the same place every single time.

At least once or twice a week.

I like the Town Center. It's very nice. The only drawback is the weekends. Too many bored, high school kids.

I think the heavy inbound traffic on every major freeway implies that the inner loop is sorta a big deal for the Houston metro.

And I am really wondering how many people outside of SugarLand come and visit it.

I have my strong opinion... but I might offend many people on here so lets see how long I can keep my thoughts to my self lol
As a 23 year old male, I love the Sugar Land Town Center. I live around 59S and BW8 so I am somewhat in the middle of Rice Village, Montrose, and other inner loop drinking spots and the Town Center.

I must say I fairly impressed with the Town Center and what it offers us young adults. There are some pretty good restaurants (from reasonable price to expensive) and some good drinking establishments. It's always crowded when the weekend rolls around and has a good mix of people. My opinion is based on the needs of a young adult and don't go to the Town Center for family attractions so maybe someone could comment on that aspect.
