There is a quaint little town located on the Gulf Coast of Texas…The Town of Rockport was founded in 1867. George Fulton completed his mansion in 1877 (now a Historical landmark) in the community known as Fulton, next to Rockport. Other communities in Aransas County include: Holiday Beach (Lamar Peninsula); Spanish Village (Blackjack Peninsula); Estes and a portion of Arkansas Pass (Live Oak Peninsula).
The Rockport area offers a wide variety of activities for locals and visitors alike. You can enjoy browsing the many art galleries or the historical walking tour. There are whooping crane boat tours for the bird enthusiast. Rockport also offers bay or deep-sea fishing for the anglers. There is leisure boating through the canal communities or you can enjoy Il dolce far niente…the sweetness of doing nothing!
Our trip to Rockport was spent with good friends who treated us to a little canal cruising, our share of good food and a bit of sight seeing.
