League City

A jewel along the coast of Texas, a family-friendly paradise.

Welcome to League City

​​​​​​​Nestled on the lovely shores of Galveston Bay, League City is a dazzling town just thirty minutes southeast of Houston. Its stunning historic streets—ensconced by the famous Butler Oaks—and impressive array of things to do makes this city a popular tourist destination. More than just a place to visit, League City is also a perfect place to call home.

​​​​​​​Originally occupied by the indigenous Karankawa people, League City was settled by what are considered the three founding families—the Butlers, the Cowarts, and the Perkinses—around 1854, when they migrated from Louisiana to establish a cattle ranching operation. Today, this suburban oasis ranks high among lists of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, the safest cities in the nation, and the best cities for families.

Things to Love

People and Lifestyle

Heavily suburban while maintaining its convenient proximity to both the bustle of Houston and the beaches of Galveston, League City is ideal for families and young professionals who yearn for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere replete with employment opportunities. The population is highly intelligent and well-educated. Single-family homes dominate the market—and with good reason. From charming historic homes to new-builds in gated communities, League City has everything you need to dive into a life you’ll love.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

Whether you love shopping small at family-owned businesses and savoring local eats or indulging in a little retail therapy at malls and chain restaurant favorites, League City has everything you need. Stroll down the town’s historic Main Street to find quaint boutiques with one-of-a-kind products, such as family-owned El Cubano, a shop that boasts world-class cigars and a 100-plus year history of growing tobacco.

The food in League City is fantastic. A local treasure that’s been featured on national television thanks to Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, T-Bone Tom’s is a homestyle restaurant tucked along the marinas. Their menu includes some of the best barbecue in the state, and this meat-market-turned-restaurant is certain to leave you impressed. Another opportunity for a true “taste of Texas,” Red Oak Cafe offers unique and extraordinary breakfast and lunch dishes in a friendly atmosphere. Seafood fanatic? Try any one of the delicious menu items at Opus Ocean Grille—like their baked oysters and lobster rolls—while enjoying the waterfront views.

Things to Do

A hub for culture, outdoor adventure, history, and learning, League City is bursting with incredible experiences for visitors and residents alike to explore. Be inspired by the marvels of space exploration at Space Center Houston. The official visitor center of NASA Johnson Space Center and a Smithsonian Affiliate, Space Center Houston is where curiosity reigns supreme, and guests can take part in educational programs in addition to the many exhibits in the museum. 

For a taste of local history, check out The Butler Longhorn Museum, where you’ll be regaled with the story of local Milby Butler, the man who helped save the Texas Longhorn from extinction. Once you’ve finished there, head to any one of League City’s plentiful parks and nature preserves to get your fill of the sublime. Join the nation’s oldest boating club—Freedom Boating Club—to take advantage of the area’s beautiful waters. Birders can delight at local opportunities to gaze upon vast bird species along the northern portion of The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail.

Golf enthusiasts and those who thrive on building connections will want to join the South Shore Harbour Country Club and the Magnolia Creek Golf Club, the area’s premier clubs that offer everything from six total distinctive nines to fine dining, parties, and perks. If you prefer something a little more casual, take a stroll along the Kemah Boardwalk and revel in games, amusement park rides, indulgent fair food, and family fun set along the scenic waters.
