The area is home to the third-largest concentration of pleasure boats in the United States.
The nearby Houston Ship Channel and the Bayport shipping terminal employ many from League City. The Ship Channel has numerous terminals and berthing locations on Galveston Bay and Buffalo Bayou. Major public terminals include Turning Basin, Barbours Cut and Bayport. The many private docks include the ExxonMobil Baytown Complex and the Deer Park Complex.
The Bayport Industrial District in Pasadena, home to more than 70 chemical plants and one of the largest private industrial complexes in the United States, is also a source of employment for many from League City.
Heavy industry brings costs of its own, especially if companies put profit margins above employee safety. Natural gas and oil field accidents, refinery fires, pipeline and petrochemical plant explosions, toxic chemical releases and exposure, oil spills, and heavy equipment and transportation accidents happen frequently. The many shipping terminals and berthing locations along the Houston Ship Channel see numerous cargo ship accidents and other maritime accidents.
