Best Barbecue in the Area

4th of July is known for barbecues and pool parties and fireworks, and since you have to wait until dusk for the fireworks, why not check out the barbecue served up at MacDaddy’s? Located at 118 Beach Street in Port Aransas and offering a taste of the best barbecue in the nation, it’s not just Texas barbecue you find here but the best recipes from all over the nation! Also offering the comfort foods you grew up on including fried chicken, hamburgers, and fresh seafood, if you aren’t much on barbecue you HAVE to try their pork chili! And when you do, we promise you will never be satisfied with chili served anywhere else, giving you the impetus to come back to Port A over and over again! This is a great place for large traveling parties as they aren’t intimidated by crowds and they know how to get your food to you quickly! Kids can enjoy another summer favorite, ice cream, and parents will enjoy that the ice cream is free with their meal!

A Day at the Beach

247 years ago, a bunch of men in tight pants and powdery wigs got together and signed a document that declared we were free from the tyranny of the King of England. That was a momentous day and the war that soon followed was a frightening one, but what happened in the youth of our country stands strong today, allowing us to choose how we want to enjoy our freedoms! Our favorite way to celebrate any summer holiday is with a day at the beach, wearing our favorite red, white, and blue swimsuits and loading our cars down with umbrellas, beach towels, and coolers filled with snacks and beverages, turning its steering wheel in the direction of the beach! You, having chosen one of our beach condos may not have to do more than fill a wagon (many of our properties provide them with their beach gear!) slip into your flip-flops and cross the boardwalk to a day filled with fun in the surf, sand, and sun! Celebrate the freedom to travel and play while you soak in the rays and listen to the music you love; this 4th of July promises to be the one you never forget as you celebrate Texas-style!

And the Night Sky is on Fire

Fireworks have long been the traditional way to celebrate America’s birthday and the fireworks show in Roberts Point Park is one of the best in the state! Lasting an impressive 45 minutes and filling the sky with color, explosions, and the scent of sulfur, the oohs and the ahhs will be continuous throughout the show! The town comes together in this ultimate display of patriotism and celebration and for one shining point in time, everyone is just one happy family.

At Home with Sandcastle Condominiums

The fireworks display in Roberts Point Park is so large that you may even be able to see it from the comfort of your patio or balcony in our Sandcastle Condominiums holiday hideaways! Spend your fabulous fourth hanging out at the community pool swimming, sunning, and relaxing under the Texas sun, and when the fireworks begin, take the celebration to your balcony, with a holiday cocktail in hand, and all your family gathered close! The sounds of the sea will be drowned out for a while, lost in the confusion of the big bangs from overhead, but once the last sparkler has burnt out and drifts to the ground in a sprinkle of dust and sprinkles, the sea will once again make itself known! Watch Independence Day on the state-of-the-art televisions, recreate your mom’s famous macaroni salad in our fully equipped kitchens, and fall asleep dreaming in technicolor in rooms built for peace and quiet; these moments brought to you Sandcastle Condominiums promise to be the ones you remember forever. Reserve your favorite Texas haven today!
