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.
With more than 35 miles of waterfront, Bay Area Houston is no stranger to the sea. Set off on a kayak, embark on a dinner cruise, or take a sailing lesson. We’re the third largest marina in the United States — your on-the-water opportunities are endless! So, no matter if you prefer the quiet dip of a paddleboard or the adrenaline rush of revving a speedboat, you are sure to make a splash.
Not only do we have stars in our eyes, but the Bay has the astronauts to reach them! Founded in 1961, we are the birthplace of NASA, home to mission control, astronaut training, and the NASA Johnson Space Center. Visit Space Center Houston and discover what’s next in the final frontier.
Bay Area Houston is for the birds—literally! Our diverse ecosystems, world-renowned migratory paths and carefully preserved wetlands make us a birder’s paradise. No matter if you’re at the beginning of your birdwatching career or if you’re a seasoned ornithologist, you’ll be able to fill your logbook with rare feathered friends and attend birding events, classes and more.
Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family vacation, the Visit Bay Area Houston website is the place to start.
