Discover a quainter side of Texas at Aransas Pass

Named after the pass that cuts through St. Joseph and Mustang Islands, although often known simply as "Saltwater Heaven", Aransas Pass is a quaint coastal community famed for its fishing, birding, and ease of access to an array of outdoor activities. Whether you plan to spend blissful days kayaking around the picturesque Lighthouse Lakes or are hoping to spot resident water birds along the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, Aransas Pass vacation rentals offer a great base for your Gulf Shores getaway. From bungalows to beach houses, you'll find all manner of hideaways to call home.

Things to do

Family fun near Aransas Pass

If you're traveling with kids, put away the binoculars and head instead to nearby Corpus Christi. There are serious brownie points to be had from a visit to the surf simulator and twisting serpentine slides at Hurricane Alley Waterpark, although young animal lovers may prefer to wander through the Texas State Aquarium or set sail on a dolphin cruise, a wonderful experience for kids of all ages. Those who get a taste for the water can follow up their dolphin adventure with a 2-hour pirate cruise through Aransas Bay, complete with costumed deck mates for younger sailors and pirate grog for the parents.

Activities

Birding around Aransas Pass

Close to several sites on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, a stay in Aransas Pass is a must for birdwatchers. Resident birds such as American Oystercatchers and Roseate Spoonbills make birding a year-round pastime, although the different seasons bring with them a wide variety of migrating birds as they make their journey along the Central Flyway. Feathered friends can be seen from many vantage points along the coast, and in the area's parks and reserves, although highlights for many travelers include the observation tower at Port Aransas' Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center and the fragrant Hummingbird garden at Newbury Park.

Weather

Soak up the sun in Aransas Pass

With temperatures in the 90s and a heat that's dry rather than humid, summers here serve up endless sunny days, perfect for firing up the barbecue at your Aransas Pass vacation rental or enjoying the live entertainment at the city's annual Shrimporee Festival. Spring and fall offer somewhat milder climes, although are still plenty warm enough to wander along the waterfront or savor a picnic lunch at Conn Brown Harbor Park. If you're hoping to get a great deal on your vacation rental, visit in the winter months and take in indoor attractions such as the Art Museum of Southern Texas.

Natural features

Outdoor adventure near Aransas Pass

Outdoor adventure comes easy amid the beautiful surrounding landscape, with Aransas Pass vacation rentals placing you on the doorstep of canoeing and kayaking tours around Mustang Island and Lighthouse Lakes.

If you prefer a little seclusion, the nearby San Jose Island Beach, accessible via the Jetty Boat, gets far less foot traffic and is an idyllic spot for sunbathing and wade fishing.
