If you want to move, Houston is a great city to call home, but it isn’t the only town in the region worth investigating. If you prefer to be right on the water, why not look at Texas City as a possibility? This town is a great place to live if you enjoy the outdoors, but it also has a terrific shopping area, a museum and plenty of things to do for relaxation.
Located in the Gulf Coast area, the town is still within an easy drive of Houston, so all the amenities that the downtown area has to offer are available. Still, Texas City has things such as the Matthew T. Doyle Natatorium, which functions as a training facility for swimmers, as well as a recreational spot for residents. The city also has a well-developed hiking and biking trail that makes getting around not only easy–but fun. This alternative to Houston is definitely different than the big city, but it has a draw of its own.
