love it! It's a nice small town to live in. Schools are really great and everybody is super nice. The file is a fun factor as well. There is also a community pool, public library and many, many park all over to take children to.

It is located in the bay shoreline. It is also a busy port with activities of refining petroleum products. It is sparsely populated with mainly of people from country side. There are few colleges and school in general. And the people usually mark food festival annually, because certain occasions were marked by the early fathers of Americans to bring people closer together.
Texas City has been my hometown for over a decade what I love the most about my neighborhood is that it is safe, I'm able to walk to the end of my street and greet each one of my neighbors with a friendly smile. One thing I would definitely change is the fact that we don't have a lot of sidewalk areas to walk along FM 1765!
