Victoria, Texas is known as “The Crossroads” of Texas because of its convenient location just two hours away from Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. Currently, Victoria has a population of about 67,000 residents.
Victoria, at the time known as Guadalupe Victoria, was founded in 1824 by Martin De Leon. He named the city “Guadalupe Victoria” in order to honor the first president of the Republic of Mexico.
Guadalupe Victoria had an important hand in the Texas Revolution, with local soldiers fighting for the revolutionary side.
After Anglo settlers took over the area, the city’s name was shortened to “Victoria” and it began experiencing a population boom in the early 20th century. Since then, the city has continued to grow and has become the “Victoria” it is today.
After you pick out your dream vehicle from Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi, go check out some of Victoria’s local activities.
