For many people, September is a time of back-to-routine but for some it’s a cool time of year to go exploring. Although on this island, it’s still pretty warm, many people are beginning to head this way for relaxing and not so crowded beach time. Personally, fall is our favorite time of year in Port Aransas. The weather is slowly cooling down, you can enjoy the beach on a much more personal note and (best of all) the wildlife will start to move around a little more with this cooler weather.
If you are down in Port Aransas this month and trying to find somethings to do here are just a few events that will satisfy all ages!
