February 24, 2023

There’s no place in Texas quite like the Bay Area. Waterfront views, sunny skies and an unbeatable quality of life. When you make the move to Edgewater, you get to share that lifestyle. Don’t know much about the Bay Area? Here are 10 reasons you will love it:


Work in Houston, play in Galveston — it’s easy when you live in the Bay Area. Webster, League City, Clear Lake and other cities are just 30 minutes from both. That doubles your access to major attractions, sailing on lakes and the Gulf, nature preserves and more.

Outstanding Neighborhoods

Each Bay Area city is unique, but they all have one thing in common — great neighborhoods. In communities like Edgewater, you’ll discover beautiful homes, friendly neighbors and excellent schools. It’s everything you need for your family to grow and thrive.

Excellent Schools

Bay Area cities are served by seven school districts. Edgewater residents are zoned to schools in the outstanding Clear Creek ISD. Considered one of the top 50 school districts in Texas by Niche, Clear Creek ISD teachers promote a rigorous, yet nurturing educational environment. Other areas are served by Dickinson ISD, Friendswood ISD, La Porte ISD, Pasadena ISD, Hitchcock ISD and Santa Fe ISD.

Space Center Houston

The Bay Area is home to many attractions, but by far the most famous is Space Center Houston. The Official Visitor Center of NASA Johnson Space Center attracts 1.25 million visitors annually. Families can always find something new to explore along with more than 400 space artifacts, permanent and traveling exhibits, experiences and theaters.

Nature In Your Backyard

Coastline in front of you, trails behind you. The Bay Area is a nature lover’s paradise. Check out the wildlife at the Armand Bayou Nature Center. Traverse the 43 trails that make up the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. Feed the ducks at Bay Area Park. If you live in Edgewater, you have access to 25 acres of protected wetlands.

Water Sports Galore

It’s easy to make a splash in the Bay Area. Clear Lake is home to the nation’s third-largest pleasure boat fleet. The Clear Creek Paddle Trail offers 5.5 miles of scenic views, tons of wildlife and picnic areas. Prefer saltwater activities? Grab your rod and reel for fishing off the pier in Galveston. Get your board and see if the surf’s up.

Family-friendly Fun

Bay Area residents can always find something to do. When they aren’t visiting the Houston Zoo or the Museum District, they are experiencing thrills and chills at Kemah Boardwalk and the Galveston Historic Pleasure Pier. Moody Gardens constantly delights with interactive adventures, an aquarium, IMAX movies and more. Slide into fun at Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Experience highflyers at the Lone Star Flight Museum and so much more.

Plentiful Shopping

Whatever you need, you are sure to find it. Stroll adorable boutiques in Old League City's Historic District starting with the Shoppes at Founder's Square. Pick up discount designer clothes and accessories at Tanger Outlets. Baybrook Mall boasts your favorite stores including Anthropologie, Apple, Fossil, Kendra Scott and more.

Delicious Dining

Whether it’s coffee at a cute café or waterfront dining at a five-star restaurant, you’ll satisfy your hunger. Saltgrass Steak House is a favorite with Edgewater residents. The brunch crowd loves the Red Oak Café. Baybrook Mall offers tons of dining options. For romantic dining secure a seat by the window at Opus Bistro and Steak House.
