All About Texas City
Texas City is a waterfront community about an hour southeast from Houston. With close proximity to Galveston and I-45, Texas City has plenty of recreational options and convenient shopping (and a name that brings Texas pride to a new level). This bustling port city off the Gulf Coast has something for everyone
Water and Wide Open Spaces
Thanks to its central location on the southwest shoreline of Galveston Bay, homebuyers who enjoy the outdoors will love Texas City. The Texas City Dike is the longest man-made fishing pier in the world, stretching over 5 miles into the bay. Visitors can explore Dike Beach’s hiking and biking trails, golf courses, fishing areas, and kids’ playgrounds. The whole family can enjoy the Texas City Dike on weekdays and weekends.
For those looking for recreation closer inland, Texas City has over 1,000 acres of city parks for its residents and visitors. Rainbow Park is a popular park that provides sports facilities, fields, and even a butterfly garden. Homebuyers with dogs can bring them a bit farther south to Texas City Dog Park, which has water fountains, obstacle courses, and plenty of shade for those hot Texas days.
After exploring the parks in the area, homebuyers can head to downtown 6th Street. This historic neighborhood is a throwback to the pre-1950s era, with charming sidewalks, signage, and awnings. Of course, 6th Street is the perfect destination for unique dining experiences. The highly-rated restaurant Taqueria El Jaliciense serves classic homespun Mexican meals. A bit closer to the water is Boyd’s Cajun Grill Express, which serves small plate of Cajun comfort food.
Bonus: A Rich History for This City
History is a big part of Texas City. The community was founded in the late 1800s by three brothers from Duluth, Minnesota after they noticed it had potential as a major port. New residents from Minnesota and Michigan populated the area first. The population of 250 grew along with the community as railroads, streets, and structures were added. Texas City faced hardships during the Mexican Revolution in 1913, the Great Depression, World War II, and the Texas City Disaster in 1947 when a ship exploded. However, Texas City has bounced back again and again. Its current estimated population is nearly 50,000 residents who enjoy plenty of city parks, quality schools, waterfront amenities, access to Galveston and Houston, and historic charm.
