I have lived in Bay City for 7 years after moving from the Deer Park area. We enjoy living in Bay City for many of the city's attributes; from the slow pace, friendly atmosphere to the close proximity to the beach and river. It is easy to be involved in the community's organizations because people are friendly and willing to help each other out. It is such a great welcoming culture from the Houston lifestyle.
