Visiting Texas Gulf Coast

Spend your spring break on the Texas Gulf Coast. The perfect escape for bird watching enthusiasts – thanks to the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail – and Texas military families visiting the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, the Texas Gulf Coast is an ideal vacation spot. Visit beautiful Corpus Christi, and take the family to kid-friendly spots like the Texas State Aquarium, and the rest of the stops in North Beach. Find more fun at the Mammoth Lake Scuba Park in Clute – where you can try the fairways at the Newport Dunes Golf Club. Don’t miss the 2012 Whooping Crane Festival in Port Aransas, the best way to start your spring break on the Texas Coast.

Clute is a great place to take the family when visiting the Texas Gulf Coast. Say hello to great beaches, city parks and golf courses, plus museums, theaters and even scuba diving at Mammoth Lake Scuba Park. One the top museums in Texas, the Brazosport Museum of Natural Science Center for the Arts & Sciences should be a staple on your Clute itinerary – not to mention the free admission. Watch the kids go nuts for the Brazosport Planetarium, or bring the art aficionado in your family to the Brazosport Art League.

But that’s not all Clute has to offer. Now its time to get off your feet, and put on some scuba gear at the Mammoth Lake Scuba Park – where you may explore caves, submarines and shipwrecks all below the surface. Clute is also a fun spot for the adults, thanks to golf courses, fishing charters, and the 600-seat Clarion at Brazosport College. As the weather warms up, so should you during your days on the Texas Gulf Coast.

A stop along the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, Port Aransas is a destination town along the Texas Gulf Coast thanks to great beaches, fishing spots, and weather. Enjoy a brisk stroll along one of the Mustang Island beaches, or shoot 18 at the Newport Dunes Golf Club – home of the Arnold Palmer Golf Course & Resort. Also known as the Fishing Capital of Texas, Port Aransas plays host to some dynamic angling contests in town, like the Redfish Series Tournament in March and the IFA Redfish Tournament in April.

If you give more of hoot about birds than fish, then don’t miss the 2012 Whooping Crane Festival in late February. The annual Whooping Crane Festival celebrates the return of the endangered whooping crane to its winter home on the Texas coast. Head to Mustang Island this spring for expert speakers like Dr. George Archibald of the International Crane Foundation, nature photography workshops, and the Bird's Nest Nature Trade Show. Unpack your trade show treasures at the Best Western hotel in Port Aransas, and enjoy the rest of your time on the Lone Star Coast.
