Port Aransas, Texas – Fun on the Texas Coast

Joseph breaks away from heat for a cooling and relaxing stay among the gentle gulf breezes of the South Texas Coast. In every season the pleasures are easy in this laid back Southern town where often the best thing to do is nothing. The active visitor has plenty to keep them busy and Joseph tries his hand at swimming, fishing, kayaking, crawfish shucking and dancing a two step or three. In keeping with his joy of lifelong learning, he hops aboard a University of Texas research vessel for a cruise of the bay and a look it’s denizens of the deep.

imagePort Aransas, Texas….the perfect Family Destination. Tucked between the dunes of Mustang Island and the Corpus Christi Ship Channel is the intimate coastal community of Port Aransas on Mustang Island. A short ferry ride provides the unique entrance to this family style island as you are often accompanied by bottle-nosed dolphins, pelicans and seagulls “welcoming” you across the ship channel. Beautiful, uncrowded beaches along the Gulf of Mexico are an idyllic place to meander among the seashells, play in the waves, or soak up the sun. The town brims with fascinating shops and art galleries, charming cafes and restaurants, and a complete range of lodging from cottages to ocean front condos. Pastimes include deep-sea and bay fishing, sunset or birding cruises, nature excursions, parasailing, kayaking, or playing a round of golf on its Arnold Palmer signature links-style golf course.

Port Aransas is a must “see and stay” paradise for all ages!
