4 comments on “Baytown”

Texas is very big, and most people are very friendly. Baytown is industrial and has lots of water on the northern tip of Galveston Bay, Gulf of Mexico.

Baytown, Texas, is part of the greater Houston area and resides on the Houston ship channel. It is home to ExxonMobil and houses other oil manufacturing plants and Lee College, which is nationally known for its superb honors program. Citizens of Baytown are largely part of Harris County, the largest county in Texas, though Baytown’s famous Cedar Bayou serves as the dividing line that separates some of its citizens into Eastern Chambers County.

Moving to Baytown, Texas? Baytown is the home to the largest EXXON group of facilities in the world, which also attracts other major industries. If you dream of looking out your window at the beautiful scenery, you will need to look elsewhere. Most likely when you look out your window you will see mile after mile of pipeline, chemical plants and oil refineries. Employment opportunities abound, and often the pay is quite lucrative. If you need employment, and a blue collar community that fits your lifestyle, then Baytown might be just the spot for you!

People moving to Baytown should know there is plenty of things to do. The city has some good school districts for the kids and where I live specifically, the neighborhood is very safe. Baytown offers a lot of city attractions and necessary stores. There is also opportunities for extracurricular activities like fishing, hunting, etc. There are plenty of take out places and retail therapy stores. I would recommend Baytown as a place to settle.
