Port Lavaca, Texas is the place that I call home. This place is a good city to live in. The beaches here are absolutely amazing. The best areas in Port Lavaca, Texas are the little parks and recreational activities that surround the areas that give you a chance to boat, swim, fish, and hunt.

Living in Port Lavaca, Texas gives residents plenty of job opportunities. There are multiple factories around here that you can gain employment at. Shrimping is also a huge industry for the area. If you go to a local restaurant and order seafood, chances are that it was caught locally.

This town is friendly. Everyone seems to know everyone and there is always someone to offer you a friendly smile. Many residents here are lifelong residents and have been here since birth. The schools could use some improvement as they are having issues handling the influx of the new residents that are choosing to live in this area. Unfortunately, the crime level does seem to be increasing, but luckily I really haven’t had to deal with any crime.
