Fall might just be the best time to visit Port Aransas; the palm trees are still swaying, the warm breezes are still blowing, and the waves are still crashing on Texas’ favorite beaches.

it’s time you head to the true Texas coast—it’s time to make your way to Port A.


Mix up your fall schedule with an escape to a whole month of head bopping, cocktail shaking, handcrafted, shop-till-you-drop events in Port Aransas. With seaside weather this stunning, why wouldn’t Port Aransas fill October with as many events as possible? Bring out the family for the three-day-long Wooden Boat Festival, catch a tropical rock concert, or hit the Taco & Margarita Trail.
Be sure to visit the Beachtober calendar for event tickets and more information.


The holiday season can be stressful, even for the most experienced shopper or host. You know what isn’t stressful? Enjoying a few extra casts from the jetty as the amber sun sets on the Texas horizon, that first sip of your ice cold beach drink, or the last few steps on your morning walk across the beach with your favorite person. So head for the coast, rent some bikes, try out paddleboarding, or just enjoy some quiet time away from it all.
Whatever your holiday season holds, be sure to plan some time in Port Aransas to help you let it go.
