Activities

 

Baytowne Adventure Zone

If you’re traveling with little ones, head to Adventure Zone! Let them have their fun ziplining above the village, trying out their climbing skills at the Tower Climb, and having a blast at the Arcade. The adventure zone rates work in a system of “Baytowne Bucks.” For example, a value package costs $55 and gets you 70 Baytowne bucks. Use those to enroll your kids in the various attractions. 

 

Sunset watching from the pier

One of our favorite, most romantic things to do is to walk along the pier and watch the sun set over the water. You can even pick up a delicious ice cream along the way and give your treat the scenery it deserves.
