Port Aransas Is The Perfect Fall Travel Destination

Amidst all the hardships that Hurricane Ike has imposed on the Houston/Galveston area, the Houston Chronicle took time to point out in the travel section that Port Aransas is a great destination this time of year.  Port A (as the locals call it) did not receive any damage from Ike or from Dolly when it struck South Padre earlier this year. 

We feel blessed to dodge these storms and we know that our turn will come one day.  It has been 38 years since we had a direct hit on our community when Celia roared ashore.  You may find the previous blog post of interest.  Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson discusses how Port Aransas and Mustang Island benefit from a healthy dune system and a wider beach than most other Texas beaches. 

The music doesn't end with summer...

Fall is the best time of the year in Port Aransas for a number of reasons, Third Coast Theater owner Jim Urban said.

"The local people who make their living in about four months, whether they work in a hotel or a restaurant, have time to go out and do things outside the tourist season,'' he said. "And the most beautiful time on the island is after Labor Day through November and sometimes through Christmas Day.

"The water is clearer, and the beaches are cleaner with a lot less seaweed. The water is still warm but the evenings are cooler and the winds are lighter and the midweek hotel rates are unbelievable.''
