Settlement began in the 1800's and discovery is dated back to the early 1500's.

Port Aransas is known for its friendly community, great school district, plentiful attractions, and, of course, FISHING! Port Aransas is located right on the Gulf of Mexico with the Intracoastal canal (ship and barge channel) running right through it.

The little fishing village can be accessed through Corpus Christi and down Mustang Island, or through Aransas Pass and across the ferry boat.

Whichever way you choose to go, get here! You are sure to enjoy yourself!

Aransas Pass

We call it "Saltwater Heaven".  Aransas Pass is a small waterfront city located adjacent to Corpus Christi and just a short drive by boat or vehicle to the Gulf of Mexico.  Fishing, kayaking, antiquing, and the arts are what many locals and visitors spend their time doing. 

Corpus Christi

The "mainland"!  Corpus Christi is an "All American City"! 

In Corpus Christi you will find smooth sea breezes and endless blue skies year-round. A Corpus Christi vacation features a bay front promenade, an arts and museum district, waterfront restaurants and an entertaining nightlife...all within walking distance from first-rate hotels.  You'll also find golf galore, plentiful shopping and beautiful beaches on a Corpus Christi vacation.

Ingleside

The gateway to the islands!  Located 18 miles North of Corpus Christi, Ingleside, Texas, is in San Patricio County, which is experiencing unprecedented growth due to: the U.S. Navy’s choice of Ingleside as a Homeport; industry expansions; the increased popularity of "eco-tourism" such as the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail; the growing retirement community; and people relocating to raise their families in a community with a leisurely pace and abundant nature/waterway resources.

Rockport

Rockport is located just off the Gulf of Mexico and offers the relaxed, laid back quality of life of a coastal community. Local business includes environmentally friendly industries of seafood, oil production, tourism, sport hunting and fishing, boating and water sports, fine art and sculptures, and bird watching.
