Take a Step Back in Time at La King's Confectionery

La Kings Confectionery
Located in a building constructed in the mid-1800s on the Historic Galveston Strand, La King's Confectionery is a MUST VISIT for us every time we go to Galveston, Texas. A trip through their doors is a step back in time with a functioning soda fountain that dates to the 1920s, Texas' original ice cream, and a candy making kitchen that uses 19th century techniques and equipment from more than a century ago... [Read the full post]

Visit the Birthplace of the Man Behind Cinco de Mayo: General Ignacio Zaragoza

Ignacio Zaragoza
General Ignacio Seguin Zaragoza was born in a house just outside the walls of Presidio La Bahia in 1829 (the same year that his community changed its name from La Bahia to Goliad). His father was a soldier at the presidio, and it was very common for children to spend their entire lives in the military community. Boys became soldiers and girls married soldiers.

Help Rebuild SFA State Park
In April 2016, Stephen F Austin State Park (also known by some as "SFA State Park") was temporarily closed due to flooding.
