Earth : North America : United States of America : Texas : South Texas Plains : Duval County (Texas)
Duval County is located in the South Texas Plains, roughly an hour west of Corpus Christi and an hour east of Laredo. The terrain is similar to that of the rest of South Texas, primarily arid brushlands and scattered trees.
There are three primary towns in Duval County, each one occupying a different area of the county.
San Diego. The county seat of Duval County. Benavides. A small town about 20 miles southwest of San Diego. Freer. A halfway point for those between George West and Laredo. Considered one of the last true frontier towns in Texas.
Duval County is not really a place visited for shopping or glitzy attractions. However, for those with an interest in history, Duval County does not disappoint. There is a plethora of regional historical and religious sites and interests.
Driving is the only real method of getting into Duval County. The nearest airports are in Corpus Christi and Laredo.
If you're starting out in San Diego, start at the Duval County Museum, 208 E. Saint Joseph. The museum gives a good introduction to the history of Duval County, from conception in the late 19th century to present day.
