You'll Fall In Love With
You'll fall in love with the warm thick air, windy breeze, and perpetually sandy toes.
Port A is it's own little niche community, but close enough to the rest of the coastal bend and Corpus Christi to make a day trip out of it. Enjoy great local food, local music, and great scenic spots.
There are several nature preserves and trails that will allow you to observe bird migrations during certain seasons of the year, but also wetlands wildlife. You may even catch site of an alligator or two.
"Fire It! Ceramics" is like nothing else in the coastal bend. Paint clay keepsakes and fire in the on-site fire kiln for a one of a kind piece of pottery to bring home.
Buy knick-nacks or surf/beach gear in-town. Or if you're feeling really extra, grab a beach bike from the town bike shop and roll down the beach in style.
Beach = Beer + Burgers for lots of people. Visit the Brew for just that. If seafood is more your speed, then try Virginia's, or the coastal-bend-famous fish tacos at Kody's.
Local beach cottages line the island, and give an authentic and classic island feel. Listen closely and you'll hear the Jack Johnson cover playing around the corner at the next bar over, and the ocean rolling like a perpetual ambient background noise.
