With each new year comes the opportunity to set (or reset) new goals that foster self-improvement. The Baytown Tourism team wants to help you reach those new goals or maybe help you discover some to add to your list.
Goal 1: Get Happier
Smiling more, sleeping more, and “treat yourself” moments are just a few ways to get happier in 2022. Here's how we can help you achieve that goal in Baytown:
Smiling More
It’s almost impossible not to smile when looking into the adorable faces of baby alligators. Get your gator fix at the Eddie V. Gray Wetlands & Educational Center. The cost will also put a smile on your face, because it’s absolutely free to visit!
Sleeping More
Sometimes sleeping in your own bed just doesn’t cut it. Book a weekend relaxation trip. Baytown has a variety of hotels to fit families, solo trips, trips with your pets and more. Check out our hotel list here to pick the right location to get your beauty rest.
Treat Yourself
We mean this literally. We have 2 delicious sweet treat options – one will break the diet and the other won’t. Regardless, both options have a variety of sinfully sweet treats and just happen to be a short walk from each other!

Goal 2: Get Healthier
This is a pretty standard new year goal that most struggle to maintain while traveling, but maybe we can help! Here are a few ways to reach your health goals in Baytown:
Take a Walk Outdoors
One of our favorite places to hit the gravel trails is Jenkins Park. Whether you are looking for wooded trails or a place to walk your furry travel companion, Jenkins Park has a variety of footpaths for everyone.

Eating Healthier
The Mustard Seed Tea Room is serving up fresh salads and light sandwiches among other healthy (and some not so healthy, but oh so tasty) offerings.

Baytown, TX 77521
Goal 3: Improve Relationships
One of the easiest ways to improve relationships with your partner, family, or friends is through travel experiences. Here are a few fun activities that are sure to help nurture relationships.
One fun activity to do with your crew is the official Baytown GeoTour. This unique scavenger hunt throughout Baytown will help you discover 31 different Baytown landmarks. At the end, you can earn free prizes. For more info about the Baytown GeoTour, click here.
Whether you are an avid fishing fam or just like to relax on the water, finding a fishing hole in Baytown is the perfect group bonding outing. Two great options for fishing in Baytown are chartering a fishing guide or taking the bank-side route at the Baytown Nature Center.
Goal Achieved
In 2021 the Baytown Tourism team set a goal to be more inclusive and accommodating towards all visitors who venture into the Baytown Visitor Information Center. We are happy to announce that our Visitor Center made the list of "2021 Best of Deaf Friendly Businesses" in the United States by deaffriendly.com. Pictured above are just a few of the amazing volunteers and City of Baytown staff working on deaf-friendly projects. To see the complete list of businesses that made the list, click here.
