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.

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.

Employment and Economy
