Make Your Baycation Your Own
Welcome to the Bay

With sunny skies and miles of coastline, we’re the home of NASA, shiny new boardwalk rides and award-winning restaurants. We’re a quick drive from Houston, but when it comes to weekend getaways, we’re a world apart. The Bay is four cities combined: Clear Lake Shores, League City, Nassau Bay, and Seabrook. Each town is unique, offering up distinct attractions and local flavors, but we’re so closely interwoven it’s better to simply say:

Welcome to Bay Area Houston. Nobody does it quite like us.
