The year-round sun and warmth of Texas makes it an ideal destination no matter what time of year you’re looking to get away. Some people may be spur-of-the-moment weekend trip takers, while others spend weeks or months preparing for the perfect vacation. No matter what kind of planner you are, you’ll want to make sure to make sure to make a list and check it twice so you have everything you need to enjoy your Port A vacation.
What to Bring
Grab a suitcase and start filling it. When you’re coming in the warmer months, the clothes you wear to beat the heat at home should go in first, and don’t forget your swimsuit and beach shoes! In the cooler months, you’ll want long sleeves and long pants, too. Light layers are advised through most of the day. Of course, you don’t want to forget travel essentials, like cash and credit cards, your passport or ID, plane tickets, and any other documentation you need to travel or upon arrival.
Where to Go
The beach! You chose an island vacation for the beach and salty waters of the Texas Gulf Coast. There is a myriad of beach activities you don’t want to miss. Mustang Island State Park, San Jose Island, I.B. Magee Beach & Horace Caldwell Pier, and Padre Island National Seashore should all be at the top of the list.
Spending time at the beach is the big activity in Port A. You can spend all day, every day just hanging out and enjoying its many activities, like swimming, snorkeling, parasailing, sandcastle building, and much more. Rent a street-legal beach golf cart and make your way quickly between beaches. Fishing off of Horace Caldwell Pier, or the jetties and shallow waters around the area is a must for anglers.
Families will enjoy living like pirates on the Red Dragon Pirate Cruise. Take a tour through Port A’s history with stops at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas Museum, Farley’s Historic Boat Shop, or the Chapel on the Dunes. Learn more about the area and marine life at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute.
