The more time I spend in the City of Baytown, the more I realize that it is truly a hidden gem. As a nature and wildlife photographer, there is boundless beauty within and around the city limits. I began writing this with the intention of listing the “top” places in Baytown to shoot. No sooner than I began to write, it became immediately apparent that this was an impossible task. Tucked inside and....READ MORE

And the inside of a loud gym, surrounded by people you don't know, might not be the best influence on your 2019 goals. If you’re looking for a change of....READ MORE

November 13, 2017  I GREY SCOTT - BAYTOWN HR MANAGER/NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER
Each morning on my way into work, I am always excited to cross the Fred Hartman Bridge. Also known as the Baytown Bridge, it spans the Houston Ship Channel and connects Baytown and La Porte. I am told that this was no small engineering feat and that it is the longest bridge of its type in Texas. While I know absolutely nothing about bridge construction, what I do know is ......READ MORE

Vacations budgets are getting smaller but our wanderlust is getting bigger. So what does that normally mean for our summer vacations? More than likely you've had to cut it out completely.

Have You Ever Cruised Texas Avenue?
August 14, 2017  I SABRINA GALLOWAY - TOURISM VISITOR OUTREACH SPECIALIST
I’ve often heard my grandparents reminisce about their Saturday nights as teenagers when they would cruise down Texas Avenue, stop in at the concession stand at the Brunson, and enjoy a fun night on the town. My vision of Texas Avenue back then has been pieced together by stories and old photos, until this past weekend when I attended the 2nd Annual Texas Ave. Cruise organized by ...  READ MORE
The Bird
AUGUST 25, 2017  I GREY SCOTT - BAYTOWN HR MANAGER/NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER
As a nature photographer, I’ve never really had any interest in birding. Odd, yes, I know . . . but there is just so much to nature that you really need to carve out your own niche. A number of years ago, I was out shooting nature (yes, that’s with a camera!) and I came across a beautiful bird – large, majestic, and colorful. It turns out it was...  READ MORE

Get Your Cache On!
December 28, 2016  I SABRINA GALLOWAY - TOURISM VISITOR OUTREACH SPECIALIST
I have always had a hard time aligning my love for the outdoors with my love for my phone. I love to go fishing. But that doesn’t mean my phone should be held by my slimy, fish hands in the middle of the bay. This also applies to floating the river, kayaking, or boogie boarding at the beach. Don't even get me started started about...  READ MORE
Did You Know They Don't Celebrate Thanksgiving in Sweden?

Rebuilding Historic Texas Avenue: Harbour's Cafe
September 22, 2016  I SABRINA GALLOWAY - TOURISM VISITOR OUTREACH SPECIALIST

After a long spell of slow commerce, Town Square is becoming the perfect spot for a day with the family or a romantic Saturday date night.
