What Bert Has To Say About Victoria Metro Area


Victoria, a small agricultural and industrial center, resides in the middle of a triangle formed by Houston, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi on the coastal plain of southeast Texas. Located on transportation routes about 30 miles inland from the Gulf, Victoria is home to several petrochemical and plastics companies, including large Dow Chemical and DuPont plants and an assortment of other manufacturers. Ranching and meatpacking round out the economic picture. While employment prospects are moderate, the town has a very low cost of living profile and high incomes giving a strong Buying Power index. There is a historic downtown district
