Welcome to Nassau Bay! The city was established to accommodate Johnson Space Center and provide a community for astronauts, space professionals, and their families. Today, more than 60 Nassau Bay residents have visited space, and a few have walked the moon. In 2005, the city dedicated a serpentine wall of black granite featuring the flags of the nations participating in the International Space Station. The striking monument is on NASA Parkway in the median between NASA and the city.
Located across the street from Johnson Space Center and Space Center Houston, Nassau Bay has it all: space and science adventure, fun, sun and water. The Clear Lake recreation area is the third largest boating center in the United States. Nassau Bay has numerous marinas with pleasure boats docked along our waterfront, in addition to yacht clubs, piers, and boat ramps. The city’s hotels offer a variety of accommodations with more than 600 rooms. October brings the annual Wings over Houston Airshow at nearby Ellington Field, and the City of Nassau Bay hosts many events throughout the year in their Town Square.
Nassau Bay partners with other area cities to provide visitor and tourism relations to the guests who visit the region. This partnership allows visitors the opportunity to explore not only everything that Nassau Bay has to offer but also adventures within a short driving distance of our area hotels. Whether you are here for business or a vacation, we alway say that a "Baycation is Better!"
