I sometimes take the Lynchburg ferry if I-10 is backed up. Be advised everyone else will do this too, so it’s a back no matter what. Other times I just take it because it’s a nice quiet QUICK ferry ride to 225(or the other way back) They pack us in really tight as only 7 or 8 vehicles can cross at a time. It’s not a huge ferry so don’t expect to be getting out of your car and feed seagulls. You must remain in your vehicle during the 5 minute ride lol

Offers a shortcut to Galveston Island area while also offering opportunity to watch ocean tankers and inland towboats and barges pass along the Houston Ship Channel while waiting for the ferry or traveling across the ship channel..... And it's free!

We go this way often to eat at the Monument Inn Restaurant. You just can’t beat it, The San Jacinto Monument and Battle ground park, the Battleship of Texas. There’s a bunch of things to do and get your Texas on. So hop to it.

The ferry closed down for repairs but was supposed to reopen "late 2020". As of January 1, 2021, it has never reopened.

No only that, there are no updates on when they plan to reopen it either. Rather than a few minutes from Baytown to the San Jacinto Battleground area, you have to take the long way around - about a 20 minute drive.

The ferry may only cover a quarter of a mile, but it makes it easy to get to Baytown from the battle field monument, museum, and park to the west. It is a nice ride with great views of the ships, barges and tugs.
The Monument restaurant is located at the ferry crossing. It has great views, good food, huge crowds and a friendly atmosphere. It is very popular with the locals.
There is another nature park across the street (Independence Parkway) from the restaurant. However, we have not visited it to do a review.

Texas provides a mostly if not all free ferry service between Clint and then select areas such as Galveston and the Bolivar Peninsula just to name another.

This location was constructed and or established mid 1820 (if not early 1820's). When the state decided to encompass it into the Texas Department of Transportation system upgrades were made and historical plaques were installed.

Great way to teach the kids some history while taking a nice ride fro. Shore to shore, then on to the Battleship Texas.

I had never been on a ferry before this one. It's short and small so you can't get out if your car, but it saves a lot of time and we saw dolphins!

A great way to get to San Jacinto Monument from I-10. Just take exit 787, turn south for about 2 miles, the landing is at the end of the road. Easy-peasy. If you're on a motorcycle, let yourself be seen by the boatmen and they'll put you on last, there's always room for a bike or two.

We found this treasure by accident, but what an exciting addition to a night out for dinner. It is just a short couple minute trip across to the other side but it is exciting what with all the barge traffic going by.
