Summer in the Sand: Port Aransas Mini Travel Diary

This year for the Fourth of July, my family and I spent a weekend at the beach in Port Aransas. We rented out the most amazing townhouse: it had three stories and a rooftop deck, along with an elevator in the house. How crazy is that?!

All of today’s pictures were taken on an iPhone 8+, which the exception of the picture below which was taken from

Directly across the front yard was a marina with a ton of boats. It was so serene to walk along it at night when it was lit by the lanterns lining the dock, and this ended up being one of my favorite experiences.

We attempted to fish early one morning just as the sun was coming up. I was decent at casting, but I completely sucked at reeling it in. My friend and I made a team since she could reel it in but not cast. We ended up catching a stingray and a few fish!

It was suuuuper windy while we were there, with over 15 mile per hour winds. This made staying at the beach at bit hard, as our umbrellas and chairs wanted to blow away. Nevertheless, the view was breathtaking as the sun rose and the clouds parted.

The next day, we went on a dolphin cruise. I was worried we wouldn’t be able to see any, but there were so many dolphins! The captain of the ship also brought around a seahorse for us to look at, as well as a lot of other sea creatures. The weather was perfect this day, and I really enjoyed the cruise.

Apart from the cruise, we spent most of our time in Port Aransas at the beach. There was also a coffee shop nearby to the townhouse with some of the best gelato I’ve had in a while. They had a ton of interesting flavors like coffee and rocky road!

Overall, I loved my time in Port Aransas. I’m not much of a beach person but I really enjoyed the serenity of the beach, and I hope I can go back soon for more.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post, and I’ll see you soon for a new one!
