Seven years ago, I moved to The Woodlands from out of state to be closer to family. What I was hoping to find was a familial connection that had been missing ever since I moved away from Indiana, where I was born and raised. What I found, however, was so much more: An eclectic, diverse and welcoming community that I am so proud to call home. I also found a wonderful destination for meetings and events.


According to the city's chamber of commerce, Amarillo – which is Spanish for "yellow" – earned its name from the color of the subsoil of Amarillo Creek and the flowers of the area's yucca plants. The Texas Panhandle city is at the crossroads of the desert and southern plains, as well as a tenacious ranching lifestyle and a creative urban vibe. Here, you'll find the wild beauty of the Palo Duro Canyon and the quirky artistry of Cadillac Ranch.


In 1929, when a forward-thinking Ketchum, Idaho, businessman named Carl E. Brandt pumped water from the nearby Guyer Hot Springs into a large natatorium and surrounded it with 31 cabins, he created one of the earliest resorts in the state. Six years later, the Union Pacific Railroad purchased 4,300 acres and founded the Sun Valley Ski Resort.
