Discover Texas City, TX


The mid-sized city of Texas City, Texas sits on the coast of Galveston County overlooking Galveston Bay, just a short drive south of Houston and Baytown. Texas City was founded by three brothers from Duluth, Minnesota on a duck hunting trip in the early 1890s. The three brothers, known as the Myers brothers, saw the possibility for the area to become a prominent port due to its location on the bay and decided to buy 10,000 acres of land in the area, which is now known as Texas City.

This development, along with the Industrial Revolution bringing railway lines to Texas City, meant before long, this was a significant port in the area, overwhelmed by its sudden boom in popularity. Due to its importance as one of the top ports in Texas, Texas City has a long history, some involving the Great Depression and the Mexican Revolution. This history, coupled with the beauty of Galveston Bay and the many nature reserves nearby, means there's lots to discover when you book an RV in Texas City.

The Great Outdoors

Texas City is quite a busy city, so you'll no doubt want to escape the hustle and bustle when you rent an RV in Galveston County. Thankfully, as it's so close to Galveston Bay, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy some open space. Galveston Bay offers lots of activities for travelers of all ages. You can do as the city's founders did and go duck hunting, with lots of companies offering guide services and organized waterfowl hunts. There are more than enough water-based activities to do too, with everything from kiteboarding to kayaking available. Texas City is very close to Houston, meaning there's no shortage of companies offering activities on the bay.

If you'd rather not get wet, then you might want to explore one of the area's many wildlife refuges. One close by is Brazoria Wildlife Refuge. Situated a little farther down the coast, Brazoria gives its visitors an idea of what the area looked like before humans settled, with its freshwater and saltwater swamps being an ideal place for wildlife to flourish. Brazoria Wildlife Refuge is a bird watcher's paradise, with over 300 species of rare birds either living or stopping over in the park. Visitors are welcome to fish, hunt, or go for a hike, just watch out for any crocodiles lurking in the weeds.

Another wildlife hotspot worth a visit is McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge. Hop on a ferry across the bay to visit this park, containing the largest freshwater swamp left on the coast of Texas. With plenty of nature trails, McFaddin is perfect if you're looking for a long hike, with over five miles of dedicated trails to explore. Visitors can engage in fishing or even crabbing if they're looking for something different. McFaddin is also a popular destination for hunters, with over 100,000 mottled ducks living here year-round.

RV Parks

There are many places to park when you rent an RV in Texas City. One option is Stella Mare RV Resort in Galveston. Stella Mare offers paved sites with full hookups with the choice of 20, 30, or 50 amp electricity. Pull-through spots are available for big rigs too. There's even a splash pool for kids and a tiki bar for adults. While there are many sites within the resort, it is recommended that campers make reservations.

When you book a motorhome rental in Texas City, you can also stay at Jamaica Beach RV Resort. This Jamaican-style RV resort is also located in Galveston and offers around 180 paved sites. All sites have full hookups with 30 and 50 amp electricity as well as cable television. Jamaica Beach uniquely offers not only a pool but also a lazy river to drift down with your favorite beverage.

Exploring the City

There's plenty to explore when you rent a motorhome in Texas City. If you're looking to learn more about the city's long history, then you might want to consider stopping by the Texas City Museum. This museum offers an extensive look into the history of Texas City, from its founding to the Texas City Disaster of 1947, which was an explosion of a cargo ship that caused a tidal wave, resulting in the loss of hundreds of people. The Texas City Museum has many exhibitions, including a Civil War-era cannon, which will interest general tourists and history buffs alike.

There's lots of history to uncover in Galveston County, and if you're a fan of museums, you may want to head down to The Bryan Museum in Galveston. This museum contains one of the largest collections of historical artifacts from Texas and western America, especially concerning Spanish influences. This museum is ideal if you're looking to soak up a slice of Old West American history, with exhibitions ranging throughout history from the pre-Columbian to the Mexican Revolution.

With Galveston Bay next door and Houston just north, everything you need when you rent an RV is located close by, from fine dining to shopping to gas stations. If you're looking for family-friendly fun, then you might want to consider a trip to Moody Gardens in Galveston. This amusement park made up of three huge pyramids has something to offer everyone. There is both an aquarium and a zoo containing everything from penguins and sharks to monkeys and parrots. Visitors can even catch a movie at Moody Garden's 4D cinema, or, if you're looking for something more thrilling, there is a huge rope and zip line course to navigate.

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
