As we step further into the deep end of summer, the year 2022 brings us a wonderful present in the form of an unexpected 3-day weekend! Independence Day falls on a Monday this year and many Americans will be celebrating the old-fashioned way with lots of red, white, and blue, cold beers, and in many cases a vacation that our forefathers fought for our right to enjoy! Deciding to take a week for vacation and only needing to sacrifice four vacation days is our inalienable right and if your journey brings you to the wonderful beaches of Port Aransas, our Sandcastle Condominiums offer the perfect respite after a long week of patriotic activities! Not sure what 4th of July Port Aransas TX activities are available to you? This guide to our favorite ways to celebrate America’s birthday will ensure that your Texas holiday will be filled with everything red, white, blue, and comfortable!
Sleep In Late
Americans are known for working too hard and not sleeping enough and the best way to celebrate our nation’s 246th birthday is by turning off the alarm clock and rolling over for an extra 30 minutes (or longer) of peaceful sleep! Our beds are designed to comfort and envelope sleepy bodies in plush softness and if you chose to get up early and sip on a cup of joe while still feeling bleary-eyed and exhausted what kind of celebrant would you be? Stop by the Donut Palace and grab a box of all-American donuts, pull the shades tightly closed, and sleep until the midday sun invites you to come out and play!
Appreciate the American Landscape
Although sleeping in is a goal for many, the heat of the day may encourage some of our guests to get up early and take a hike through the glorious beauty of Joan and Scott Holt Paradise Pond. An American treasure, Paradise Pond is where the wildlife love to play and as you follow the boardwalk paths that surround it, you will not help but fall in love with the beauty of our country, our state, and, of course, our coastal town that welcomes all who visit! And although our favorite song, America the Beautiful, does not mention Paradise Pond in its lyrics, we believe if the creator had visited here when writing, this beautiful pond would have had its own chorus!
A Day at the Beach
Red towels, white swimsuits, and the blue skies of Port Aransas are awaiting you when you choose to celebrate the 4th of July on the beaches of our coastal town. Pack a cooler with your favorite foods and beverages, stake your claim on a segment of the beach, and prepare for a day of restful and serene fun like none other. Build sandcastles with your toddler, practice your boogie boarding skills with your teen, or simply lose yourself in the beauty of stories told by others as you read, relax, and soak in the summer rays on this beautiful Independence Day!
Red, White, and Boom!
Over the last couple of years, we have learned that yes, there can be a Fourth of July celebration without fireworks, but we also have learned that it is just not the same! Fortunately, fireworks celebrations are back with a vengeance and Port Aransas is no exception. Robert’s Point is bringing back the red, white, and boom with a Fireworks spectacular that will not cost your family anything to enjoy! Bring some lawn chairs (many of our Sandcastle Condominiums offer beach gear that would be perfect for this gathering!) a cooler of beverages and join our town from 8:30 PM until 10:00 PM watching the sky light up with color and pizazz! Fireworks and the 4th of July are back together again, and life has never been this sweet!
