the back porch: "port aransas" Texas Nightlife Tip by rancherpowell

Texas Nightlife: 35 reviews and 18 photos

This open air watering hole made us feel like we were FINALLY on an island. Mingling with the tourists , locals & fishermen we lazed away an entire afternoon. Later we returned for the live music scene.......Augie Meyers no less! aka Texas Tornadoes & Sir Douglas Quintet. The place was on fire with activity .......dancers, families, singles......We had a big time. Apparently the live music scene on this quirky little island is one of Texas best kept secrets. My wife counted 8 locations with music. Locals were friendly,....tourists were , plentiful. We're told Spring Winter & Fall are best times to avoid crowds. We'll definetly go back. The back Porch seems to be the epicenter
