  • it's very, very, very common for buyers to come tour the factory after a purchase.

    i could easily see a victoria cat visit include a bay fishing trip / a hunting trip / an offshore fishing trip / golf.

  • "Bridgette Bise with the Victoria Convention and Visitors Bureau said her agency would be happy to work with Caterpillar.

    "We already put packages together for groups," she said. "We could tweak them and make them appropriate for any group."

    Well, let's hope they are significantly better than the packages she put together for the 300 or so three-day Korean War Conference visitors earlier this summer.

    Oh, wait...she didn't. Never mind.

  • That is the funniest thing i have ever read. Come on guys really....with a headline like that how can the whole crew at the Advocate keep from laughing. There is no tourism in Victoria....Like BigBlueJoe said, the leaders of this community are hallucinating; they must be eating those cow patty mushrooms or something. There is nothing interesting enough in Victoria to draw people here for an overnight stay and to spend money.....at best we host a few conferences, meetings, or an occasional history buff who might hit the cemetery. The park is certainly not a draw and I really don't think anyone with a brain cell one is going to drive here to see the Caterpillar plant. The plant itself will, yes, bring a few business visitors and some new jobs and that's great!!! Put please, don't make us laugh with this tourism garbage.

  • WHAT? Tourism, Seriously? Seriously? Where in the world do the "leaders" of this here community, get these notions? Tourism? In Victoria, Texas? Pray tell me where the heck you are going to tour in Victoria, Texas? Tourism, hahaha. Keep these comics rolling Advocate. I need a real good laugh before I start my day.

  • Even with the good news about Cat coming to town, some people want to focus on minimum wage jobs requiring no education. Only the ability to bus a table, clean a hotel room, or take a meal order.

    Will Victoria College of UHV (or TTV, TAMUV, UTV, or whatever Willie wants to call it) offer "special" education classes for the coming boom that they keep wanting to bring us.
