Texas City’s tallest structures illuminate the night sky along Galveston Bay, but they’re not glittering condos or office towers. The Texas City Industrial Complex is one of the nation’s largest oil refining centers. The refineries are a source of pride and petrodollars for the community and region at large. Texas City is among the last mainland stops on the route to Galveston Island. Nearby, the 5-mile Texas City Dike is a haven for fishers.
