Rockport the Texas Riviera
On a lovely, sun-swept peninsula separating Copano and Aransas Bays, lies the picturesque town of Rockport, Texas. In this small town, life runs at a slower pace and the subtropical climate is perennially mild. Brimming with art galleries, fun events, and recreational opportunities, it's the kind of place where residents don't feel the need to hurry. Rockport offers a mix of affordable housing, job opportunities, and stunning natural scenery. Whooping cranes still land among wind-bent trees that dot the sand-dune covered beaches. On this flat coastal plain, residents can visit swampy grasslands or find dozens of galleries, where water-dominated landscapes and fishing boats are the subject of countless works of art.
A cultural nucleus of art and history, Rockport has earned a ranking in the book, The 100 Best Small Art Towns in America. Hundreds of artists live in town year-round, and many more visit seasonally. A stroll down Main Street allows locals a glimpse of the city's artistry and past. Also, Corpus Christi is only 30 miles away, and Rockport's residents can enjoy its many attractions, including the Art Center, the Museum of Science and History, and the symphony.
Rockport's real treasure, though, lies in its recreational opportunities- from bay fishing to golfing, water skiing, and more fishing. This small town also summons bird watchers from all over the world to visit the famed Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, home of the countless bird species and other wildlife. The city's parks are another real draw. Goose Island State Park is the home of 1,000-year-old "Big Tree," perhaps the most famous oak tree in the world. Padre Island National Seashore extends southward for 113 miles.
Locals work in industries like retail, the arts, tourism, sport-fishing outfitting, and offshore oil rigging. Others make the half-hour commute to take advantage of Corpus Christi's diverse economy, while enjoying a home in Rockport's scenic, laid-back ambiance. This lovely little resort town offers a high quality of life in a prime location, and it easily earns its complimentary nickname- the Texas Riviera.
