Welcome To Dickinson-

Located on the beautiful Dickinson Bayou, a pathway to Galveston Bay, Dickinson is a prime geographic location, situated halfway between Houston and Galveston on Interstate 45 and with easy access to numerous other major thoroughfares and methods of transportation. Dickinson’s rapidly growing business community includes aerospace, petrochemical, healthcare and retail operations with room to grow. Dickinson offers business a proactive economic development philosophy and attitude, diverse trade areas with available land and/or lease space in each area, a professional City staff, and a streamlined permitting process.

With its close proximity to great shopping, activities, and attractions like NASA’s Johnson Space Center Houston, the Kemah Boardwalk, Moody Gardens and Gulf Greyhound Park, Dickinson residents have the best of both worlds – a relaxed approach to life in a small community setting with all of the attractions of a large city at their fingertips. With several new facilities under construction and planned for construction in the next couple of years, Dickinson Independent School District is continually building and expanding to provide the best opportunities for its students, ensuring that its educational facilities offer state-of-the-art technology and superior learning environments. All of this, and much more, make Dickinson a great place to live, work and play!
