Must Do: Houston Raceway Park
Ranked 4.5 out of 5 stars
Visitor Review: "I stayed at Baymont by Wyndham which is very close to Houston Raceway, I was not keen on going but the front desk staff pushed me to go…so glad I took her advice, I enjoyed the whole experience. I had never been to a raceway, now I will be a regular when I visit Baytown."
Good Eats Outdoors: El Toro - Garth Rd.
Ranked 4 out of 5 stars
Visitor Review: "We had been here a year or so ago and decided to come back after being down at Crystal Beach. This place does not disappoint. The food as always was amazing. I had the 3 enchilada plate with water melon margaritas - everything was fantastic. If you haven't been - you need to go there!"
Good Eats Breakfast: Cuban Cafe
Ranked 4.5 out of 5 stars
Visitor Review: "Best coffee hands down. Amazing Cuban sandwich. Breakfast is awesome and try the fried potatoes. You're welcome. 😁 Friendly staff to top it off."
Top Ranked Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn
Ranked 4.5 out of 5 stars
Visitor Review: "The staff was amazing and seemed like they were genuinely happy to be there. My wife and I were extremely skeptical about traveling since COVID hit and we have been thoroughly reassured that this establishment cares and is working hard to make everyone feel safe."
