The 22 Top Attractions in Baytown!

Pirate's Bay in Baytown, Texas
Hello Baytown Bert, here are the top 22 attractions that I see as important for anyone visiting or living in Baytown. I added one restaurant and one beer company as a 21st and 22nd attraction because we all love to eat and socialize! Instead of providing a list of 22 in order of importance, I decided to divide the attractions and venues into four broad categories. They are not ordered according to importance because different people are interested in different things. Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks!

Another major draw for some folks are the bald Eagles nesting on Tri City Beach Road by the Evergreen Golf Course.

People always ask me where they can go fish from the bank. Well the Sylvan Beach Pier is best, but many haven't seen the Baytown Nature Center a peninsula of wildlife and fishing piers and banks that really are good places to fish. Bring your own bait and fresh dead shrimp next to live shrimp is the best for trout, redfish and croaker.

*I still like Roseland Park with old train, play ground for kids and fishing and crabbing....
*Places I miss is Decker Drive in theater... got engaged to my wife there in 70's....
* and I love Someburger double meat, fries and milk shake...
* above all I really like the melting pot of people in Baytown, many have great history stories of how they got here....

Customer service is not what it used to be

I was called by a local business today to pay for a maintenance service on my in-ground pool. My debit card on file had expired. ...
