A city of about 13,000 people located on Galveston Bay, Seabrook, Texas, has the motto: "as grand by land as by bay, and why many choose to stay." And with a solid inventory of single-family homes ranging in size from less than 1,000 square feet to nearly 8,000 square feet – along with townhouses, condos and undeveloped lots – there are plenty of opportunities to stay in Seabrook. The charm of living near the water, however, results in Seabrook having a higher median home price than that of the state overall.
