4 Things To Do in Baytown from Your Car


There is no denying that the need to get outdoors is growing stronger the longer we all participate in social distancing and self-quarantine. We wanted to give you 4 things that you can do in Baytown without leaving the safety of your car in hopes that people will continue to stay safe and stop the spread of the coronavirus. 

  1. Find all of the Baytown wrapped traffic cabinets
    There are 26 wrapped traffic cabinets dotted along some of Baytown's main thoroughfares. They consist of photographs, pencil drawings, digital art, and paintings from local artists that have been vinyl wrapped as part of Baytown's Public Art Program. For a list of the cabinets that you can check out from your car, visit our Baytown Art webpage.
  2. Birding at the Baytown Nature Center
    The Baytown Nature Center is a 500-acre peninsula surrounded by Burnet, Crystal and Scott Bays. It consists of hardwood uplands, high quality tidal marsh, and freshwater wetlands. This unique site is listed on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail and provides habitat for 317 species of resident and neo-tropical migrant birds. The American Bird Conservancy designated BNC as a nationally important bird area. Lucky for us, the Baytown Nature Center has large roads winding through the park with areas great for pulling over and checking out birds in their natural habitats.
  3. Check out the Art in the Downtown Arts District
    If you love art, you will love the large murals on display in the Downtown Arts District. Start your driving tour at the Eddie V. Gray Wetlands Center to check out the Wetlands Center 20th Anniversary Mural done by artist Armando Castelan. The mural is located on the pier side of the center on a connex box. Next, stop by the Sterling Municipal Library to see a mural of the largest bookshelf in Baytown, before finally touring Texas Avenue for the biggest cluster of murals in the city. Texas Avenue hosts five different murals beginning at the Baytown Auto Gallery and ending at the Art League of Baytown. For a full list of the murals, visit our Baytown Art page.
  4. Get some grub!
    Everyone has to eat, so one of our favorite things to do in Baytown (from the safety of our car) is support a local eatery by ordering takeout. Our local mom and pop restaurants have been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 crisis and one way that we can all help them is by picking up a meal to go. To see some of the foodie deals around Baytown, check out our "Take Out Choice of the Day" on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels. Or, you can find a full list of Baytown's casual dining locations on our Dining page.
