Kingsville

The living legend – Kingsville, Texas is located between the Texas Gulf Coast and the South Texas brushland. Less than 200 miles from San Antonio’s city center, Kingsville has a unique historical legacy and is home to the world-famous King Ranch® offering historical tours or more in-depth birding, wildlife or special interest tours. Find out how travel opened to all of South Texas when our first passenger train stopped at the Train Depot on July 4, 1904 – the day our city was founded. Today the 1904 Train Depot serves as a museum free and open to the public. It’s steps away from the King Ranch® Museum and the King Ranch® Saddle shop where you can watch Robert Salas hand craft saddles and indulge in retail therapy at the many quaint specialty shops that dot the city’s historic downtown. Sample a true Texas made Rum at Wild Horse Distillery just outside the city limits. It’s an award-winning brew created with only Texas products and distilled in Kingsville. Visit the L.E. Ramey Golf Course and experience our newly finished greens or plan for a day outdoors with abundant fishing and hunting opportunities. Kingsville is also home to a museum and chapel honoring Venerable of God Mother Julia Navarrete. Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, Mother Julia opened her very first convent in Kingsville before establishing forty-five convents in Mexico and the United States.
