Welcome to Texas Now

My husband and I have traveled the Coastal Bend of Texas for 4-years now, getting to know each community, city and town we’ve visited. We’ve met some interesting and unique folks along the way who have been kind enough to “introduce” us to their hometowns. Whether it be outdoors, indoors, on the water or by the water, we bring the best of the best from Galveston to South Padre to our readers.

Your own Texas coast experience is waiting for you!

Texas Coast


SEADRIFT & The Texas Water Safari

Historical Homes of Bay City

Matagorda Style!

Great Times in the Great Outdoors

They don’t call the Texas Water Safari ‘The World’s Toughest Canoe Race’ for nothing. In addition to the length, the challenges include whitewater rapids, multiple portages, and the relentless, soul-sapping Texas heat.


History is alive and well in Matagorda County. Some of the finest examples of historic homes and buildings in the state can be found in Bay City. Preserving and encouraging preservation of historic properties has kept the history of Texas and Bay City viewable to the public.

There is a special place in Texas where the call of the wild blows in from the bay; where you’ll find amazing nature and wildlife and world-class beaches, even museums, historic sites, unique shopping and great dining.
