A February 2003 trip to Port Aransas by Toadshorts

Quote: Our first timeshare, and what a lovely place! Secluded yet close to so many sights. We loved the morning fog and even the soft rain one day. Local folks are VERY friendly and helpful. We felt right at home.

This place had charm. The condo was very roomy and comfortable, had a fireplace, entertainment center, wet bar, a hot tub, and a private deck. The beach is about a two block walk. What more could you want. The beds are comfortable, the furnace and A/C work well, and the neighbors are quiet.

Best Things Nearby:Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, and San Antonio.Best Things About the Resort:It's out in the country yet minutes from town. We had very quiet neighbors. Resort Experience:Charming.

Texas Treasure Casino Cruise

Attraction | "Texas Treasure"

We took the evening cruise and it was lots of fun. Eating is first on the agenda, followed by strolling the deck, visiting with fellow passengers, and taking in the live entertainment. As soon as the ship is in international waters, the casino opens. It was very lively. We also had a very informative chat with one of the stewards who was from Bulgaria; we learned a lot about his country and why he left.

Story/Tip

Birders!! You must come here at least once in your life. There are many, many sites devoted to birds; some are tucked away in quiet glades, others on the sea shore. We were here in February and there were no bugs!
