Calhoun County - Port Lavaca Texas
Texas Coastal Bend
Calhoun County, Texas
Calhoun County has been welcoming visitors to its shores since 1519 when Spanish explorer Alonzo Alvarez de Peneda cruised through its seven bays. Port Lavaca (Calhoun County) is located near the center point of the 375-mile Texas Gulf Coast and provides a coastal retreat to many of the urban areas of Texas. More than half of the surface area of Calhoun County (500 miles of shoreline) is covered with water offering fresh seafood, Gulf and bay beaches and cool sea breezes. The natural port on Matagorda Bay was used to expand Texas missions and garrisons for more than 200 years, and today these navigable waters serve as an attraction for commerce, industry and recreation.
