Destination guide

A scenic slice of Texas east of Houston

Baytown certainly lives up to its name, being nestled amid the intricate waterways leading inland from Galveston Bay. This watery region is a place of immense historical importance and pride for locals, because the Battle of San Jacinto was fought within the Galveston Bay Area, with General Sam Houston triumphing over the Mexican army in 1836. Today, Baytown vacation rentals put you right in one of the commercial and industrial heartlands of Texas. But there’s also plenty of natural grandeur to balance things out, with parts of Baytown a scenic haven for wildlife enthusiasts.

Things to do

Exploring the history of Baytown

If you’re curious to know more about the community that surrounds your Baytown vacation rental, there’s one place you definitely have to visit. That’s the Baytown Historical Museum, which has exhibits from the 19th and early 20th centuries, housed within a quaint, former post office. Want to kick back and see a show? Check out what the Baytown Little Theater is showing – this plucky dramatic group has been going strong since 1961. And, if the sun’s beating down, let the whole family cool off at Pirate’s Bay water park, where you can all get wet and wild on the colorful slides.


Taking in the many faces of Baytown

Baytown is a place of contrasts. One moment, you can be indulging your inner shopaholic, the next you might be on your way to a grand, stately landmark. Historic, downtown Baytown is a big draw, and a wander down Texas Avenue will present you with independent art galleries to browse, and family-run restaurants where you can refuel. Look out as well for the famous oak tree, said to be around 1,000 years old. Kids will love Roseland Park, with its playground and splash pad, while you can also take a day trip to San Jacinto Battleground State Historic State, where you can ride to the top of the monument tower for views across Houston, have a picnic nearby, and step aboard the USS Texas, an immense battleship which served in both world wars.


Year-round recreation in Baytown

You can go ahead and book Baytown vacation rentals for any point in the year. This isn’t a place that’s particularly linked with any one season, and nearby Houston – a 30-minute drive away – has attractions to appeal in all weather. While Baytown itself sees high temperatures in the summer, the coastal breeze keeps things nice and comfortable. Winter can be a fun time to visit, thanks to the ice skating rink which pitches up in the town square throughout the festive season.

Natural features

Watching wildlife in Baytown

Water is a big part of the Baytown landscape – the city overlooks Tabbs Bay, part of Galveston Bay, on one side, and is bordered by Cedar Bayou on the other. To connect with the landscape, you should visit the Baytown Nature Center, which is spread across 2 peninsulas surrounded by 3 vast bays. Here, you’ll enter a realm of sprawling wetlands that’s home to countless species of birds, from pelicans and red-tailed hawks to killdeers and egrets. Observation platforms, walkways, and a whimsical butterfly garden all make for a memorable excursion – so bring your binoculars and get wildlife spotting.
