For a truly relaxing beach vacation, head to the small town of Port Aransas. Port A, as it’s known, offers some of the state’s cleanest shorelines and minimal crowds. Instead of large resorts, you’ll find quaint hotels as well as a ton of beachfront home and condo rentals. Plus you can walk or bike almost anywhere in this small island community. Port Aransas is only 178 miles from San Antonio; 207 miles from Houston; 252 miles from Austin.
For many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer and the season’s first trip to the beach. While you may have your heart set on a trip to the Caribbean, jet-setting to an exotic location isn’t economical or eco-friendly. Fortunately, there are plenty of destinations that are practically in your backyard like Port Aransas.
