Bay, canal, dry lot homes
The bayside residential enclave that settled around the “Crashboat Basin” inlet was actually a developmental offshoot from Scholes International Airport, formerly the Galveston Municipal Airport that dates back to 1931. The harbor that enters the neighborhood from the bay on its north side was originally used to give boats access to the airport. Eventually, after the waterway ceased to be used primarily for maritime transportation, residential development moved into the area. (From the 2011 City of Galveston Neighborhood Master Plan)
Crash Boat Basin is a golf cart ride away from Moody Gardens Public Golf Course and the adjacent Pelican Grill, as well as Sugar Bean cafe in Evia.
