Aransas National Wildlife Refuge
The Aransas National Wildlife Refuge encompasses over 115,000 acres of land along the Gulf Coast, not far from Sinton. The refuge was established in 1937 by Franklin D. Roosevelt as a breeding ground for migratory birds. The largest flock of endangered whooping cranes live at the refuge each winter. Alligators, armadillo, roseate spoonbill and other native species also live in the refuge.
Enjoy driving along the Refuge Tour Loop and keep your binoculars handy to spy the wildlife. Strolling along the refuge's walking paths are a great way to see the deer, wading birds, javelina and feral hogs. Bicyclists also have fun cruising along the 16-mile paved road. After a wonderful day exploring the refuge, check into a comfortable Best Western guest room to make the most of your stay.
