  • We have passed through Victoria a many times, but I dont know anything specific about it. Seems just like a small town to me and I dont think the shopping is something big there.

  • LOL 'small town' in Texas is all relative. I grew up in Boyd..400 people..thats a small town in Texas. Victoria isn't like San Antonio or Houston..although it is about the same distance from either. It is a midsize town. When we lived in Beeville we had few shopping options. Victoria was often the closest place to find what we were looking for. The town I live in is 16000 people, I'm not sure exactly how many are in victoria..but I know they are at least 5-6 times bigger than we are. That's a city of significant size here. They are the biggest city within about 2 hours of the, I know you can be in Corpus or San Antonio in about 2 hours, I think it's about the same to Houston. It takes less than an hour to get to the gulf. I hope I helped some.
