Freeport, Texas has been designated an official Texas Main Street City. The Texas Main Street Program, part of the Texas Historical Commission’s Community Heritage Development Division, helps Texas cities revitalize their historic downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts by utilizing preservation and economic development strategies. Historic downtown Freeport is being lovingly restored. Located between the banks of the Brazos river and the shores of the Gulf, this newly discovered jewel is rebuilding the splendor of it’s past.

After a day of offshore fishing, beach combing, bird watching, or enjoying a host of many water sports, come visit our specialty shops including art galleries, nautical supplies, antiques and crafts. Stop in one of the fine restaurants offering everything from award-winning seafood, to authentic Mexican food, to home barbecue.

The city has several public boat ramps for the convenience of our visitors as well as charter and party boats services.

Freeport has a large picturesque shrimp fishing fleet which helps supports the local economy with jobs as well as much needed tax revenue for the city. Also, two of only a few of the nations net manufacturing businesses are located in Freeport.

Also, you can spot many shore birds feeding in the vast marsh area that line the roads on the way to the coast. I almost always see an Osprey or two near the Freeport bridge.During the annual Christmas bird count Birders from across the nation gather at Freeport and the surrounding area, to identify and ad the many species that are present to their lifetime bird count.
