First long trip..Port Aransas, Tx

Left this am.
Went by largest convince store in America.

Averaged pretty good MPG running 78mph.

From Port Aransas Tx to the south most tip you are allowed to drive on the beach. Several cities allow golf carts in town as well.

Gone there several times. Don't let the ferry scare you, they really know how to fit a TT on the ferry. We have also gone thru Corpus Christi taking South Padre Island Drive. Lots of traffic but a good well marked road. While in Port A. we like to stay in Pioneer RV Resort. Has a good pool for the kids and easy beach access. Clean, well maintained and have a really good breakfast in the rec hall. Have fun and have a safe trip.

Port A is a nice place. We stayed at "On the Beach" a couple of years ago. I was stressed about the ferry but like Les says it was a non-event.

Where are you staying?

Port A is one of our absolute favorite RV destinations! Probably half of our trips have been there. We love the beach, we have a handful of our favorite restaurants (Port A Pizzeria is on my list next time! YUM) and we love hanging out on the beach!

Our favorite park is Gulf Waters RV Resort. It's way down the beach, so the crowds are a little thinner, and it's a beautiful park with beautiful sites, and they have a new boardwalk for beach access that accommodates golf carts.

People not from Texas have tough time understanding Buccees

UGH! So jealous! I think we might have to suck it up and take the new baby down there ASAP after he gets here!

We've been coming since 1966. Started in a tent on the beach. Then popup at on the beach RV park. Added 5k ac in the tonge end of the popup in 1971. Was no use during day. We would lay on floor for afternoon nap with kids. Worked ok at night.
Have stayed at every motel in the early days for a quick fishing trip. They are now dumps.
In the 60's-thru the 80's trips were measured by how many beers it to took to get there. Port A was a two six pack trip from Austin....for each person drinking. Boy...have times changed. We were lucky to have survived those days. We now spend about 30 days a year here at various times.

We're staying at pioneer this trip. Use gulf waters also. Now that they've completed their golf cart bridge to beach much more.

Umm, you're not helping with the whole jealous thing! LOL!

That looks absolutely terrific! No seaweed or anything!

I'm sure you probably know, but you're in for some pretty significant storms tonight, cold front will set up a beautiful rest of the weekend for you guys! Might be a little chilly swimming early in the morning, but I bet it'll be just wonderful in the late afternoon and evening!

Supper at Scuttlebutts...less than $20.00 plus $3 for wine and $3.50 for margarita.
Happy hour prices.
