Bay Area Houston is a charming bayside region consists of five distinct cities along 35 miles of coastline — Kemah, League City, Nassau Bay, Seabrook, and Houston. Located halfway between Houston and Galveston, and only 15 miles from Hobby Airport, the region attracts visitors for fresh seafood, water recreation, stunning nature preserves and two of Texas’ top attractions – the Kemah Boardwalk and Space Center Houston.
Sail away on Clear Lake, a 2,000-acre natural inlet of Galveston Bay in the heart of Bay Area Houston. As the nation’s third-largest pleasure-boat basin, Clear Lake remains a popular destination for fishing tours, dinner cruises and water sports. Step aboard a schooner for a pirate ship adventure, charter a luxury motor or sailing yacht for a relaxing day on the water, and rent kayaks to explore nature’s bounty along the coastline.
There’s plenty of fun on land, too. Voted one of Forbes Top 10 Texas attractions, the Kemah Boardwalk has amusement rides, carnival games, family fun events, boating and a full marina are available in this magnificent waterfront setting. Be sure to take a relaxing stroll along the winding boardwalk on the bay and visit the many plentiful shops, and stop in one of our famous restaurants for waterfront dining. Home to the Boardwalk Bullet – the Coolest Coaster on the Coast – the Kemah Boardwalk is a thrilling visit for young and old alike. Kemah Boardwalk also boasts events year-round! From Rock the Dock Concerts during the summer to our famous Boo on the Boardwalk in October.
The only beach in Harris County, Sylvan Beach Park has 2,000 linear feet of beautiful sandy beaches and a great view of the Gulf Coast from the walkways and sitting benches along the beach.
