Area Attractions

So much to do, so little time!

The Galveston, Houston, and Bay Area offer such an exciting and eclectic blend of activities that you won’t run out of places to go, things to do, or people to see. And when you’re done, come relax at Marina Bay RV Resort.  On this page you will find information and links to many of the area attractions.



Bay Area Houston boasts numerous restaurants that offer waterfront dining, from casual outdoor venues along the channel to elegant dining on Galveston Bay and Clear Lake.  Fresh Gulf seafood is certainly a trademark of the region, so enjoy the signature fare in your choice of settings. In addition to the sumptuous seafood, try the many cuisine choices such as barbecue, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Thai, steaks and South American.

Kemah Boardwalk is only 3/4 mile away and offers a diverse collection of restaurants all in one location. There will be something for everyone with favorites like Joe’s Crab Shack, Landry’s Seafood House, The Cadillac Bar, The Crab House, The Aquarium Restaurant, The Flying Dutchman, and Saltgrass Steakhouse. You can also find seasonal events like Kemah’s famous “Rock the Dock” summer concert series, Fireworks Fridays, classic car shows, the Miss Kemah Pageant, and so much more. So don’t just come stay, come play!



The area’s shopping options span from clusters of cottage shops selling handmade crafts to modern shopping malls filled with popular stores. The Kemah Lighthouse District and Kemah Boardwalk (only ¾ mile away) boast many retail specialty shops.

You may opt to stroll lazily under the shady canopies of centuries-old Live Oak trees in the Historic District of League City (just 2.5 miles away) where many of the shops are in historical buildings.

Just up the road, on IH 45, youll find one of the Houston areas leading shopping centers, Baybrook Mall as well as the new Tanger Outlet Mall on IH45 heading South.

If you feel like staying “home” after a long day of shopping, pick up some fresh seafood from one of Seabrook’s many fish markets. We recommend Rose’s Seafood. Bring it back to the resort and grill out at our waterfront BBQ area!
