This fascinating 1823 settlement offers an exciting blend of heritage-rich tradition and a city alive with cultural activity and international industry. Chosen home of famed playwright Horton Foote ("To Kill a Mockingbird", "Trip to Bountiful"), and the city film location of the 1963 movie, "Baby the Rain Must Fall," Wharton is the perfect escape! Shopping is an exotic adventure in itself! Whether it's a fine, handcrafted silver belt buckle, an exquisite pair of ostrich leather boots, or designer clothing from our specialty shops throughout the city, treasures are waiting to be discovered! FEEL THE EXCITEMENT The things to see and do are endless! Wharton offers swimming pools, tennis courts, and a country club with a spectacular golf course. A hunter's paradise - deer, geese, ducks and squirrels are in natural bounty. Enjoy saltwater fishing on Matagorda Bay, only an hour's drive away! Wharton's celebrations are as memorable as its sunsets. Each season is a new reason to have fun! Spring brings Shanghai Days Cowboy Gathering on the Downtown Historic Square with lots of cowboy music, poetry and fun for the entire family, it also brings the Wharton County Youth Fair & Exposition to honor the vibrancy of Wharton's youth and its rich agricultural heritage. The Wharton County Freedom Festival is our 4th of July celebration which is held the weekend before July 4th. It includes a Bar-B-Que Cook-off in Riverfront Park, fun, games, motorcycle parade, veterans salute, live bands and a magnificent fireworks display at dark.

Enjoy the sights! Historical homes, museums, cattle ranches, the winding landscape of the Riverfront Park along the Colorado Riverthese are just a few of the many treats in store for you here. It's the perfect blend of old and new, exciting and rejuvenating for the sensesand one of Texas' best kept secret getaways.
