Southeast of Houston, on the east side of Burnet and Tabbs Bay lies the city of Baytown. With easy access to the Houston Ship Channel/Port Houston and area manufacturing and petrochemical plants, Baytown is home to major employers that help propel the Houston economic machine.
Bays, rivers, and inlets cover the eastern borders of Baytown, and wetland activities and wildlife abound. Watersports, fishing, swimming, and nature hikes are of the fabric in this community. Birding is also popular in the area, with over 300 species of avian visible throughout the course of the year!
Residents of Baytown enjoy easy commutes to the gulf coast, downtown Houston, as well as to Lake Charles, Louisiana. Major thoroughfares include I-10, SH 146, SH 225, and eventually the Grand Parkway.
Baytown has long enjoyed its seclusion from the rest of residential Houston. With the recent expansion to the Panama Canal spurring growth within the Ship Channel, a new surge of development has hit Baytown and the surrounding areas. Baytown is currently experiencing a flurry of residential development as new residents flock to the area for it's economy and affordability.
