Renter's guide to Baytown, TX

Sitting on the dock of Galveston Bay in TexasHarris County and Chambers County is Baytown. The sixth largest city in the metropolitan area, it’s perhaps a city best known as the historic site of the Lynchburg Ferry, which has been in operation on the Houston Ship Channel since 1836. But owing to its location, the city of Baytown is one that’s inevitably dwarfed in terms of reputation and size by its neighbouring state capital, Houston.

How big is Baytown, TX?

Compared to Houston’s sprawling 667 square miles, Baytown is tiny: stretching across only 36.5 square miles.

How far is Baytown, TX from Houston?

With a driving distance of only 26 miles between Baytown and the metropolitan capital, Baytown offers a perfect retreat from Houston’s hustle and bustle.

Weather in Baytown, TX

Baytown weather is mild and pleasant; its humid subtropical climate ameliorated by its coastal situation on the Gulf Coast. Baytown, TX is at its most pleasant in March through June, with highs averaging out in the mid-80s °F and lows rarely dropping below the mid- to low-60s. Temperatures tend to soar in the summer, reaching average highs of 94°F in July. But, being on the coast, Baytown weather is always bearable—at least compared to inland Houston. And even around January, in the midst of winter, temperatures seldom fall below 45°F.

Tips for renting in Baytown, TX

Renters’ rights

Renters’ rights in Baytown, TX are typical of those across the state. Anti-discriminatory and health- and environmental laws are in place to protect tenants. And, in line with elsewhere in the state, renters moving to Baytown have the right for “quiet enjoyment”; one of the best rental laws in Texas guaranteeing that, as a tenant, you cannot be disturbed, harassed, or, most importantly, evicted without due cause.

In securing rents and leases, some landlords prefer oral agreements. But legal advice from the Texas Attorney General, who governs tenant laws across the state, suggests that as a tenant it’s always better to request a written lease or rental agreement.

Things for renting

Living in Baytown, TX

When thinking of living in Baytown, pros and cons have to be considered. Arguably, the main pro to living in Baytown, TX is its proximity to Houston—you have everything the Texas capital can offer at your doorstep without having to live with its traffic and oppressing urban sprawl. But the city of Baytown has its own draws, not least in that you have everything you’d expect from a city on the gulf: Baytown sun, Baytown weather and, of course, Baytown seafood.

But the city has its drawbacks too, the most serious of the cons to living in Baytown, TX being of ecological nature. With its history of heavy industry, the city experiences more ozone and shipping pollution than almost any other city in the US. And, because it’s situated right on the coast, hurricanes are more of a concern than they are further inland, particularly during fall.

Things to do

For those wanting a watery retreat away from the Baytown sun, the Baytown waterpark—Pirates Bay—is perfect. And for parents seeking out things to do with kids, there’s the nearby Kemah Board Walk: a fun-packed family-friendly theme park.

Baytown also has lots of fun things to do for sport and music lovers. The Bayou Bowl—a high school seniors’ game pitting the best of Louisiana against the best of Texas—has been held annually in Baytown’s Stallworth Stadium since 2003. And for Latin music lovers, every October sees the return of the ever-popular Grito Fest.

Baytown, TX Employment Rate

All that being said, however, the Baytown unemployment rate is 9.1 %—much higher than that of Houston or the US in general. Securing a job before relocating, then, should be an absolute priority.
