Living History in Goliad

July 3, 2017

A trip to Goliad is a trip back in time and an exploration deep into the life of Texas and its beginnings.

Goliad and its many historic treasures and central location in the South Texas plains makes it accessible to popular coastal locations like Corpus Christ and Victoria, and it’s not far from Texas’ second largest city, San Antonio.

Goliad offers a State Park, which also is home to a rebuilt Spanish mission, Mission Espiritu Santo. Goliad is a popular destination for those who like to hit the river in a canoe along the scenic San Antonio River.

Goliad also is home to the Presidio La Bahia, a unique place in Texas history, and the place where Fannin met his doom.

For those who like a good brew, stop by Goliad Brewing to see what they have for visitors. Other places to see in Goliad include the Goliad Market House Museum; the Goliad County Court House; and many other historic sites located in and around the city.

Experience unique shopping at boutiques like the Square Gallery, an eclectic boutique and art gallery in downtown Goliad.
