Located a half hour away from the busy streets of Corpus, Port Aransas is a quiet resort town on the sparkling Gulf of Mexico with lots of shopping, dining and fun things to do. There are hundreds of new homes under construction right now with others in the works. We have an excellent school system here with a low teacher to student ratio, several churches and civic organizations. For a complete schedule of events, visit the chamber of commerce website at www.portaransas.org.

There are hundreds of beautiful condos available in a variety of styles: high rises, single story, and stand-alone units grouped in a complex. There are some great houses, too, all within minutes of the shore.
