Port Aransas is a pleasant little tourist town on Padre Island with nice people! A relaxed atmosphere especially on the quiet weekdays in April. On the weekends though lookout for the weekend travellers and finding a nice hotel room can be a bit of a chore! I camped on the beach for a few nights until I got chased off by a thunder storm with high winds, adding to the excitement. On other nights I stayed in some nice motels though a little pricey for my pocket book I made do especially to get out the sand from the nooks and crannies. the local supermarket has a nice selection of food and I cooked mainly for the duration of the stay, using mostly charcoal. It was great. Texas ribs and potatoes with veggies and fruit to back them up . In the general area I took in the Uss Lexington, state aquarium, and of course the local bird watching opportunities. The brown pelican being my favourite. The small ferries crossing over to Aransas Pass are a worthwhile trip and you can drive around in a circle over the Corpus Bridge to the city and back out to the Island. Ocean View(?) drive along the waterfront is a nice area to look at some great homes and some nice parks to relax in .
- Pros:Good food, people and scenery
- In a nutshell:Worthwhile even for a side trip, to the island for the birds!
I enjoyed several evenings out in small bars and watched a little live music...always fun and a good way to met some... more travel advice
Food and service is good The shrimp and garlic mashed potato were great and the stack of pancakes for breakfast are... more travel advice
