Good evening! Welcome to the Official Web Site of the
Matagorda County CVB.
At 6:12 PM CST it's

We are a short drive away from most large Texas cities. We make the perfect weekend getaway being so close to Houston, just a little over an hour drive away from paradise.
Midway between Galveston and Corpus Christi, right where the Colorado River meets the sea, Matagorda County lies at a curious confluence of nature and history that goes back nearly 500 years, and it just seems to get better with time.
A perfect weekend getaway for Houston, San Antonio and Austin, it's surprising how many have never made the drive.

Indeed, nature and education are what Matagorda County does best. But it's also a great place for indulgence, with fine dining and finger-licking barbecue, fresh-caught seafood overlooking the harbor and home cooking that will make you think of Grandma's kitchen. It's also a great place to take your cooler and your lawn chair and kick back to watch the waves roll in.
