Coastal Lifestyle

Voted one of the best Coastal Small Towns in the United States

Fulton Mansion State Historic Site

Aransas County is on the Live Oak Peninsula so it is surrounded by water on 3 sides.  Choose from an endless number of activities, all framed by the beauty of our surrounding waterways. 

Kayaking, boating, bicycling, sunbathing, fishing, shopping, and walking the beach are just some of the activities Aransas County Citizens enjoy on their days off.   There are numerous eateries to choose from serving world-class seafood.

Rockport has been repeatedly named one of the top 5 Coastal Small Towns in the United States by USA Today.  Highlights include The Rockport Center for the Arts which hosts a wide variety of exhibits, special events, workshops, and classes for children and adults.  Construction is underway on their brand new Art Center and a $5 million performing arts and conference center.  The Texas Maritime Museum is a family favorite.  In the heart of the city you’ll find Memorial Park, offering sports fields, a skateboarding facility, fitness court, dog park, and scenic walking trails.  Of course you can’t miss Rockport Beach, it’s Texas’ first Blue Wave Rated Beach.  After a day on the water explore Downtown Rockport and the Cultural Arts District.  You’ll find shopping, art galleries, and world-class dining.  After dinner take a stroll by Rockport Harbor and see the iconic bait stands.

Fulton has a vibrant downtown with shopping, dining, and lodging.  One of the most picturesque drives in Aransas County, Fulton Beach Road, takes you from Rockport over to Fulton where there is even more to explore.  The brand new Fulton Fishing Pier is a favorite for visitors and locals alike.  Stroll along Fulton Harbor and check out the shrimp and oyster boats. The Fulton Convention Center is a state of the art 10,000 square foot facility, perfect for business, private, and community events such as fishing tournaments, weddings, conferences, and more.  Perhaps Fulton’s most well known attraction, the Fulton Mansion State Historic Site has to be on your list of places to visit in Aransas County.
