Visiting the Texas Gulf Coast

The late summer sun is setting in on the Texas Gulf Coast, and cities like Corpus Christi, Victoria, and Port Lavaca are eager to welcome your stay. Plan your next visit to the Lone Star State and head for the gulf – you’ll be treated to a wide range of bird watching trails to try, top attractions like the Texas State Aquarium, and you might just find your new favorite road trip.

Make the most of your time along the coast with a stay in Galveston. Head to this welcoming seaside city starting on September 2nd for the 7th Annual Brewmasters Craft Beer Festival for tastings, expos, live music, and more. This three-day event takes place at the Moody Gardens Amusement Park. Designate a driver in the group and make the short trip into Galveston from nearby Seabrook or Angleton.

Northeast of Galveston, you’ll find the Beaumont area, including the charming city of Vidor. Make your way out here on August 4th and see one of the true legends of country music – Clint Black. Head for the Julie Rogers Theater in Beaumont and see Clint perform on his On Purpose Tour. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Plan your visit to the TX Gulf Coast for early October and see another music legend. On October 8th, Sir Elton John performs live on stage at the American Bank Center near downtown Corpus Christi. See this piano-playing icon tickle the ivory starting at 8 p.m. – tickets on sale now, and they range from $39.50 to $149.50. Make the short drive in from neighbor cities like Portland, Robstown, and Sinton.

That late summer season in Texas means many things – outdoor recreation is on the rise, autumn hues are overtaking the lush greenery along the coast, and it’s time for some hard-hitting action of college football. Head for the Provost Umphrey Stadium, home of the Lamar University Cardinals football team, and catch a thrilling Southland Conference show down.

The LU season launches on September 3rd when the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers visit Beaumont for a 7 p.m. kick off. Later in the season, on October 29th, celebrate Lamar University homecoming when the Houston Baptist Huskies roll into town. The final home game of the season for the Lamar Cardinals is on November 12th when they face the University of the Incarnate Word Cardinals at 6 p.m.
