Located on the mainland facing Aransas Bay, our Rockport vacation rentals are just 18 miles from Port Aransas and 31 miles from Corpus Christi. This quaint seaside town has a laid-back lifestyle, but promises a convenient location near a number of larger and more well-known Gulf Coast towns.
This quiet town is a small hub of galleries, eateries, and coastal wonders, and your Rockport vacation rental puts you close to all of it!
Around the Rockport Harbor are a number of fun attractions and eateries. Looking for a fun and educational experience? Stop by the Rockport Aquarium, a small non-profit that offers free admission to the public, or the Bay Education Center, an interactive education center and museum. Visit the Rockport Center for the Arts, offering exhibits in several mediums. This center is home to the Rockport Art Festival during Independence Day weekend and the Film Festival in early November. The Lone Star State is known for much more than cowboys and the Texas Maritime Museum explains the vast history of the area.
