Nestled on Mustang Island, the city of Port Aransas is one that’s little known in global circles. However, its relative obscurity from touristic crowds makes it the ideal getaway destination. A beach destination, its position on the Gulf of Mexico has endowed it with a picturesque backdrop, one of the reasons you should visit for your next vacation. Hidden gems like Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center are some of the fascinating sites that enchant visitors. This attraction boasts a long boardwalk that cuts through a wetland where you’re likely to spot several alligators. And if you’d like a panoramic view of the bay, head to Roberts Point Park’s observation tower. Enjoy a vacation away from the crowds by renting out one of the vacation rentals we’ve listed below, found in Port Aransas. Scroll down to find out more.
