Family Style Spring Break Port Arnasas
Spring Break down on this coast is widely known as a fun time for college kids, teenagers and families. The problem when trying to find a place suitable for your family is fear of being around too many youngsters while trying to enjoy more of a sober and safe experience. Goods news though, this can be done!
As a family traveling down to Port Aransas during Spring Break, it’s important to know the best “family friendly” areas. The open beach is a target for teens, so avoiding places directly in Port Aransas is a must if you’re seeking a more quiet vacation.
You will find many resorts and hotels along the highway (HWY 361) in between North Padre Island and Port Aransas that offer beachfront views and a more exclusive setting of the family friendly atmosphere you may be seeking. These resorts are 5-10 minutes away from the city of Port Aransas as well as North Padre Island, making for short travel time to and from restaurants, gift shops and other entertainment on the islands. These places are great for families with young children as well as young teenagers.
If you do choose to stay in Port Aransas with your family, look for properties that have an age policy. Most properties require the guests to be 25 years of age to rent, which seems to keep the partying youngsters out of the property, however the beachfront is not quite as exclusive as you may desire.
The Sandpiper for example is 50 yards from the beach and busy only by its’ guests. Even though the Sandpiper is a large resort, our guest population does not hold a flame to what you may experience closer into town. Besides the Sandpiper, there are several locations on HWY 361 that offer this family friendly environment such as the Seagull, Mayan Princess, Port Royal or the Grand Caribbean.
Spring Break in Port Aransas can be such an enjoyable experience in the right location. The weather is pretty-even if it’s rainy-and the beach will be relaxing; giving you and your family the break and bonding time you came down here for.
There is nothing wrong with staying in Port Aransas but if you are truly looking for a family Spring Break trip, further out of town is your best option.
