Victoria, Texas
The centerpiece in Victoria is Riverside Park, a 400-acre preserve bordering the Guadalupe River. It's close to the business district and makes a great picnic spot.

Riverside Park is also a great place to play golf. The 27-hole municipal golf course inside the park is considered one of the best small-town municipal courses in the state ("small town," in this case, meaning a population under 100,000 - Victoria's population, according to the figures most recent at the time of this writing, is around 60,000).

Also inside Riverside Park is The Texas Zoo. This zoo is very small, but it has a hook: it specializes in native Texas animals.

The Nave Museum and McNamara Historical Museum are two museums worth a visit. The Nave displays the art of Royston Nave, a Texas artist of note from the early 20th century, plus traveling displays. The historical museum focuses on Texana and antiques.

Nearby Coleto Creek Reservoir is a great place to go fishing. And Victoria is full of old mansions and historical buildings.
