This sleepy little town in recent years has seen a boom in development of housing, retail and industrial.  With  low taxes, no MUD tax and little to no HOA fees, make Texas City a prime place to live. Pelican Harbour opened the gate for new housing in Texas City with Grand Cay not far behind. Then you had some more affordable homes built in the West Texas City area such as Rainsong, Lone Trail Village and Pearlbrook. Now Texas City has it's newest addition Lago Mar.

To accommodate these new homes owners the retailers had to keep up. The once booming 6th Street in Texas City is under a revitalization with the help of the city and the new Chamber of Commerce staff. There are new restaurants, bars and retail venues that makes for a nice Saturday stroll.  The new bike paths are an easy way to explore some of Texas City's new places.
