In 1824, John Dickinson bought the land now known as Dickinson from the Mexican government. Around 1850, the settlement was established, including the bayou. The city grew when they added a railroad stop from Houston to Galveston in Dickinson.
One of the things Dickinson is most known for is the bayou that runs right through the heart of the city. Some activities that the bayou has to offer are water skiing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating and fishing. Other things you can do located in Dickinson are Beacon Lakes Golf Course and Bay Area Raceway. Dickinson has Paul Hopkins park in the middle of town and Bayou Wildlife Park, an exciting wildlife adventure at an open range zoo. Dickinson has an annual festival located at Paul Hopkins Park called the Festival of Lights that has been a city tradition for over 20 years.
