City of Art! Visiting Texas City is an artistic journey. Life-size bronzes dot public squares and are displayed on street corners, in and around the city's convention center and on Bayou Golf Course. Also, visit the Frank B. Davison home at Heritage Square to see what life was like here 100 years ago.

Island Sensibility on the Mainland! A 5-mile-long, man-made dike extends into the Gulf as a breakwater to protect the Houston Ship Channel. It's referred to as the world's longest fishing pier. Today you can walk the whole length, whether you fish or not. For even more of an island feel, hop over to South Padre Island.
Port of Texas City. The city's economy is based on heavy industry, and this is the third-largest port in Texas, based on tonnage. Oil is big business, as is container shipping, and railroad transportation. Take a break from work at Beyond Burger or Gringo's Mexican Restaurant.
Little Town, Large History! Texas City was founded by three brothers from Minnesota in 1891, who thought Shoal Point had the potential to become a major port. They were right. Its Petrochemical Center is a world leader, and a fair amount of the gas consumed in the U.S. is processed here.
New Homes! Because of the major destruction caused by Hurricane Ike, there is a lot of new construction and homes of all sizes. Rent to own homes are available, and you can find new homes built on stilts in many areas, particularly near Moses Lake and Dollar Bay.
Redo Possibilities! Rent to own houses can sometimes be acquired at below-market value if renters have the ability to perform necessary repairs. Prices are rising, however, and the number of such homes on the market has decreased over the past two years. Get the things you need for your home improvement projects at the Lowe's on the Emmett F. Lowry Expressway or Hoffman Lumber Co.
Access to the Beach! Texas City is located in Galveston County, and it's easy to get across the causeway to The Strand to eat great seafood and listen to live music. Visiting the Railroad Museum, the Peanut Factory Antique Mall, or just going to the beach is worth a weekend excursion. You can always watch the sunset and sip a cool one at Beerfoot Beach Bar.
Live Relaxed! Local living is easy and the weather is usually warm. The cost of living in Texas City is 11.3% less than the Texas average. All indexes, including the cost of rent to own properties, groceries and transportation are lower than statewide averages. The cost of housing is about half the national average. Take advantage of the lower grocery prices at places like Jones Drive-N-Grocery or Food King.
It's a Flip-Flop Life! Texas City is small-town living in tropical surroundings. Head to Galveston in the fall for Shrimp Fest and if you just have to see the big city occasionally, head to Houston for the Bayou City Arts Festival.
