Katy Texas Day Trips

Katy Texas Day Trips

Katy, Texas, is a vibrant and rapidly growing community just west of Houston. Founded in the 1870’s, Katy was originally known as Cane Island, named after Cane Island Creek that still runs through it. It wasn’t until 1945, however, that Katy became incorporated as a town.

The older part of Katy is a community of quiet, tree-lined streets which reflect the laid back atmosphere of a small town. Historically, Katy was a major agricultural center, especially rice farming, and a railroad hub. At one time Katy was also home to one of the one of the largest gas fields in this part of Texas, over 30,000 acres in the 1940’s.

BBQ

There are a number of great BBQ places to eat in the Katy area.

  • Rudy’s BBQ is perhaps my favorite. They are located just off I-10. Expect it to be busy, even though it is quite large, it is just that good!
  • Midway BBQ is another BBQ place worth mentioning and is located in old town Katy,  It has been around for a number of years.
