When you can drive two hours in any direction and arrive in some of the largest cities in Texas, it’s easy to plan a day trip to visit some of Texas’ great landmarks. Two hours gets you to Austin, the Capitol of Texas, or San Antonio, the home of the Alamo. Houston, Galveston, Corpus Christi, they’re all right there, just two hours down the road.
With all of these places in such close proximity (relatively speaking), it’s easy to forget that we have some famous landmarks right here in Victoria, Texas. So I’ve put together a list, in no particular order, of some of the historically significant places you might want to visit right here at home.
