This Summer In Port Aransas Was One For The Record Books

PORT ARANSAS, Texas - All the signs point to this being the best Summer Season in Port A.  Vacation rentals were at an all-time high.  In fact, July occupancy levels in Port Aransas were up 11% over last year.  Most local businesses beat record numbers from 2008.

There are a host of theories as to why Port A prospered this year.  It was likely a combination of factors that brought record numbers to our beach town.  In the coming weeks I will post details on vacation rental properties in Village Walk and Royal Sands.  Homes generated $30k to $50k+ in gross rental revenue.

Many long time visitors know that October, November and December are perfect in Port Aransas.  The weather is great, the crowds are smaller and you can claim a stretch of beach all for yourself.
