Rockport, Texas is a short three hour drive away from Austin. There is something for everyone, and of course the outdoors is a big part of the things to do in Rockport. We met up with the President of the Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce Diane Probst to learn what our trip would entail. This town is considered the charm of the Texas Coast, and was actually named the “Best Small Coastal Town” by readers of USA Today. People might automatically associate Rockport with the beaches, but there are beautiful hike and bike trails, bird-watching areas, kayak launch areas and a lot of history around. Rockport has 20,000 acres of fishing territory, so seafood and fun is not scarce. To see what this little town has to offer for your adventurous soul go to aransaspathways.com.
