This Texas Revolution-Era Park Is Sure To Captivate Both Nature Lovers And History Buffs
If there’s one place every Texan should visit at some point in their life, it’s the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. One of the most historic places in Texas, this sprawling, 1,300-acre park commemorates the battle that led to our state’s independence from Mexico, and it’s beyond fascinating to see and experience in person. Plus, the site is situated amid lush greenery and overlooks the Houston Ship Channel, making it a nature lover’s paradise, as well.
For more information about the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site, including current hours of operation and entrance fees, please visit the Texas Historical Commission website.
