Visiting the Texas Gulf Coast

Winter is less of a cold season along the Texas Gulf Coast than it is a respite from the steamy summer. This season, as winter turns to spring, communities from Galveston to Corpus Christi see the most beautiful weather they get all year. Spend a day relaxing on your choice of countless gorgeous beaches or head into town and be a part of all sorts of special events, community festivals, and family-friendly fun.

This time of year, the Texas Gulf Coast is arguably at its most scenic, and the best way to take it all in is by packing up the car and heading out on a driving tour. From the more remote reaches around Port Aransas to the outrageous urban scale of Houston, there’s much to see and plenty to do along the coast.

Corpus Christi is a confluence of cultures from different sides of the planet, and the 31st Annual Polka Fest is a great example of the community’s diversity. On February 27th, the Sokol Gymnastic Center fills with the bouncy sounds of accordions, tubas, and other traditional instruments along with faithfully fitting food and dancing to go along with it.

Movie buffs make their way to Victoria for the 2016 Victoria Independent Film Festival, March 18th through 21st. Up and coming filmmakers from the region showcase their latest shorts, documentaries, and feature-length films at at the Leo J. Welder Center for Performing Arts. There will also be meet-and-greets, panel discussions, and appearances by a selection of producers, actors, and directors. Check listings for individual screening times and get your tickets before they sell out.

The 2016 South Texas State Fair draws big crowds to the YMBL grounds in Beaumont, near Vidor, March 24th through April 3rd. The ten-day event features everything from midway rides and games to a livestock auction, the YMBL Championship Rodeo, art shows, specialty food and artisanal product vendors, and more.

Foodies flock to Galveston, April 14th through 17th, for the 2016 Galveston Food & Wine Festival. Venues all across town invite you to sample wines from around the world, enjoy live entertainment, taste dishes created by acclaimed chefs, and even get tips from Food Network star Robert Irvine before working it all off with a fun 5K run. Check the schedule at local-favorite spots like Sparrow Bar + Cookshop during your visit for individual event times.
