Rock(port) around the clock on Texas's buzzy Gulf Coast

Overlooking Aransas Bay in the Gulf of Mexico, Rockport is a buzzy beach resort on the Texan Coast.

If you're more an art fiend than a sea dog, head to the Rockport Center for the Arts. With great beaches, museums, and contemporary art, book a Rockport vacation rental on the waterfront and have the best of all worlds. After a day on the beach, wander over to Rockport's vibrant waterfront for a cool beer and seafood barbecue, and watch the sun set.

Things to do

From maritime to Monet, explore Rockport's colorful history

The Texas Maritime Museum attracts a real mix of young families, wannabe maritime historians, and salty old sea dogs. Opened in 1989, it explores the Gulf Coast's extensive maritime heritage, from shipwrecks to oil rigs. See booty from old Spanish shipwrecks, some of which date back to 1554. Learn about Rockport's shrimping and fishing industry, and even about the brief Texas Navy. For a more contemporary look at the beach town, head to Navigation Circle and the Rockport Center for the Arts. Housed in a 1890s building, it's a buzzing hub for Rockport's art scene.
