Welcome to Victoria, Texas
Victoria, Texas, is a central location between the larger cities of San Antonio, Corpus Christie, and Houston. While it might not have the population its sister cities boast, it has plenty of character.
The area was settled long before it was colonized. Starting with the Karankawa and other indigenous tribes, the site was used for its rich coastal resources. Victoria eventually came under U.S. control in a years-long battle between Karankawa, Mexico, Spain, France, and United-States-controlled Texas. The city of Victoria was initially chartered in 1839 with the second oldest operating newspaper in the state, The Victoria née Texian Advocate, coming shortly after in 1849. Victoria has an exciting history but has maintained a close-knit community with a small-town sentiment.
Victoria has since expanded its original boundaries. Visitors are likely to note apparent differences between the original parts of the city and more modern areas. While each section of the town has its draws, we encourage you to start with the old and work your way to the new to build a robust understanding of the area and its people.
Traveling to Old Victoria requires a mandatory stop to both the Victoria Visitors Center and the newest location of Zipps Liquor on your way in. The Visitors Center will provide you with a map to navigate the well-worn streets to find treasures of historical significance, excellent food and drink, monuments, and can’t-miss locales. Make sure to stop into these must-sees while you’re in Old Town:
- De Leon Plaza
- Evergreen Cemetery
- Leo J Welder Center
- Public Library
- Fossati’s Delicatessen
- Rosebud Records, Grill and Theater
- Victoria Art League
- Victoria County Courthouse
There are ongoing festivals and celebrations in Victoria to look forward to each year. We can’t wait for the upcoming Leprechaun Hunt at the Victoria Library or the annual Christmas festivities that light up the city. In the meantime, visitors can enjoy celebrations that the city is known for:
- Viva Texas Film Festival
- Boot Fest
- Five points Museum tours
- Nave Museum tours
If you love to shop while traveling, make sure to pack an extra bag for your trip to Victoria. Old Victoria boasts over 40 locally-owned and operated shops and boutiques to peruse. If you decide to venture out to the newer parts of the city, you will find more standard-issue stores and shopping in the local mall.
There is no shortage of places to eat in Victoria, with over 150 local and national eateries. Since Texas is a BYOB state, you can bring your beverage to restaurants and bars. Be aware that there is sometimes a corkage or set-up fee to accommodate BYOB drinkers. Call ahead to make a reservation and bring your favorite Zipps liquor selection to dinner.
The Great Coastal BBQ Trail
The Great Coastal BBQ Trail is a series of restaurants that celebrate local and multi-generational restaurants serving food in the area for years. There are currently five restaurants on the Victoria BBQ Trail. If you eat at more than three restaurants on the trail and take your receipts to the Visitors Center, you can redeem them for a free t-shirt to commemorate your culinary delights.
