Life in Texas City, Texas

Texas City, perched on the southwest shoreline of Galveston Bay, is a busy deepwater port on Texas’s Gulf Coast. Discovered on a duck-hunting trip by Minnesotans, investors joined to establish the port city in 1891. The city serves as a petroleum and petrochemical manufacturing center. The Port of Texas City is the third largest in the state and eighth largest in the United States. 

Major employers include these industries: health care and social assistance, retail trade, and construction. Mining, agriculture, and transportation also play a large part in the economy. Situated on the bay, Texas City residents can explore many recreational activities, including 42 parks, the Texas City Prairie Preserve, and fishing off the Texas City Dike. History buffs can enjoy the Heritage Square historic district, which includes the Davison Home, once owned by one of the area’s pioneer families. For families and businesses of Texas City, receiving cheap, yet dependable electricity is important for supporting the pace of everyday life.
