“Just like our other websites, we needed a new Travel and tourism website to really sell the story of visiting Gonzales and we definitely have that now with our new Saffire site! Our local businesses and rich history are prominently promoted in a really user-friendly way. And best of all, this system can be operated by one team serving three different audiences!”

Gonzales, TX Travel
Gonzales holds a unique place in Texas history as the site of the firing of the first shot for Texas independence. October 2, 1835 eighteen townsmen stood on the bank of the Guadalupe River and refused to give up their small cannon to the Mexican Army. A flag was fashioned showing a black replica of the cannon on a white background with words that would echo through the years, “Come and Take it.” Gonzales further carved out its niche in history when 32 men answered the call for help from the Alamo. The immortal 32 were the only reinforcements who made it to the Alamo in time to fight and die alongside many other heroes. After the fall of the Alamo, during the Runaway Scrape, General Sam Houston ordered the town of Gonzales burned. Later soldiers and townspeople returned to Gonzales to rebuild their town.
