Baytown Reviews

I've lived in Baytown since I was 5. Overall, there are some really great neighborhoods that are perfect for raising a family. I also found the school system to provide a high quality of education. The only downside is Garth Road is too congested with traffic, the mall needs to be rebuilt and there is not a lot of entertainment venues. But overall, I have had a great experience living here!
Review Baytown
I have no specific complaints! I love the area. It has a nice suburban life to the area and there are always friends near by to walk to their houses. It's an easy area to love. There is a big park within walking distance that has exercise machines which allow the community to become more healthy. Or the opportunity is there. The schools are getting better and we're having a lot of new openings to literally everything. New restaurants, new grocery stores. Baytown is certainly becoming a contender on the map.
The city of Baytown is a growing city, with lots of opportunities. If you are looking for a wonderful town to raise a large family this is the place to do it. There are many available jobs in the chemical processing field. All in all if you're looking for a place to relocate this is perfect for you!
