Dickinson, TX draws visitors and residents for its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico and the larger city of Galveston. The city first became a tourist hot spot during the early 1920s, when investments from the Maceo crime syndicate poured into the town. Prominent Galveston residents made the area their playground, and the Oleander Country Club was one of the leading resorts. Today, Dickinson has a strong economic foundation that is partly fueled by the nearby Johnson Space Center.
