DescriptionAn excitement permeates Alvin!

The Babe on the bayou is preparing for her most honored guests! Tourists who love to visit her time and time again.

But where in the world is Alvin,Texas? It’s an all American hometown, just south of Houston, off Nolan Ryan Parkway, quietly nestled in the endless miles of prairie-like frontier of Brazoria County. Visitors enjoy outdoor, fresh fruit and vegetable Markets, 55,000+ sq ft of antique shopping, Joes BBQ,(where Nolan Ryan loves to eat) Exotic Wildlife parks, grocery stores operating since the 1800’s, bass fishing, birding, nature trails, golf, camping, scuba diving, and even skydiving. Richly endowed with cultural and historical landmarks, legends and lore, Alvin and her twin-sister county towns, Angleton, Brazosport, West Columbia, Brazoria and Pearland are precisely where the Lone Star State TRULY began.
Gaining victory over great and perilous times throughout her history, the Babe on the bayou has tenacious, undaunted spirit. Claimed as the "queen of the coast" in 1915, the babe of the bayou has grown from a cow prairie town in her early teens and roaring twenties, to a rice and oil center in the depression of the thirties to Gulf Coast acclaim in the forties & fifties, to a petrochemical kingdom in the turbulent sixties & seventies to excellent economic base and well-being in the 21st century. The Babe on the bayou, Alvin, Texas welcomes you, dear reader, to come and enjoy her, history, attractions, and simple ways of life.
