Bayou-Vista is a waterfront community located on the southeast coast of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 1,537 residents. As part of Galveston County, the town of Bayou Vista received severe damage from Hurricane Ike in September, 2008. But, as the city's motto says, "Where living on the water is a way of life," the community bounced back and is stronger than ever. A mostly residential community, Bayou Vista is developed along a series of twelve, dredged, man-made canals, which provide access to Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The canals are very well maintained and visitors must take care not to dispose of any type of waste into them. Boats are allowed on the canals, but boaters must not cause wakes, which can damage bulkheads. The community of Bayou Vista offers lots of recreational activities, such as fishing, crabbing, boating, hiking, biking, birding and more. Residents and visitors can fish or crab from docks or from boats in Galveston Bay. The city of Bayou Vista is also a very safe community, where the police department provides 24-hour patrolling, and visitors can feel safe. The town is host to the annual Bayou Vista Town Festival, usually held in May. Festival-goers enjoy fishing tournaments, golf tournaments, a parade, BBQ cook-off and a pancake breakfast. The community of Bayou Vista is near Jones Bay and Highland Bayou about eight miles west-northwest of Galveston and on 35 miles from all the attractions and excitement of Houston.
