Port Aransas, Texas in the Winter

Snowbirds visiting Port Aransas are captivated by its unique history. Port Aransas was once a stomping ground for pirates, including the famous Jean Lafitte that traveled the seas hundreds of years ago. Legend has it that Lafitte buried treasure on the shores of Port Aransas and today thousands of Snowbirds and other guests peruse the white sandy beaches in search of treasure. Port Aransas is also home to hundreds of species of fish, shrimp, dolphins, and is a winter home for many North American birds, including the endangered whooping crane. The natural environment provides a great setting for many Winter Texans to enjoy fishing and birding.
