Coastal towns offer plenty of activities

Since Hurricane Harvey made its way through South Texas, Corpus Christi, Port Aransas and Rockport were just some of the cities that were affected by it. Rockport and Port Aransas had lost many businesses, which affected its glory of being some of the most popular places in the country to visit.  

The Chamber of Commerce rural business developer, Glenn Gomez, is expecting for this Spring Break to be a big turnout for the city of Rockport. The only problem is that some of the hotels are still being rebuilt from the hurricane. 

Despite of most of the hotels still being rebuilt, it should not stop visitors to have a good time at the Rockport Beach and enjoy the good food that many restaurants provide in Rockport.

The 40th annual Oysterfest is traditionally the kick off to Spring Break in Rockport. The festival is famous for the oysters but also the many merchant vendors.

The Rockport-Fulton Fire Department are the masterminds behind this event, giving them the opportunity to raise money for their department. 

If you happen to be in Rockport March 7-10, make your way to the Fulton Navigation Park and enjoy some fun rides, food and live music at the Rockport-Fulton Oysterfest. 

In Port Aransas, the famous beach is top on the list of things to do. The Port Aransas beach is usually the busiest during Spring Break.
