The Rockport area has long been a getaway for Texas anglers. Located on Aransas Bay, Rockport provides good access to Copano, St Charles and secluded fishing north in San Antonio Bay, as well as the Redfish Bay complex.
Rockport has emerged as a cultural center of the Coastal Bend as well as a fishing mecca. A strong arts community has developed with the large number of retirees and artists that have moved to the area. Numerous waterfront communities with series of canals have developed along the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) and on Copano Bay.
A good selection of restaurants, hotels and small fishing cabins dot the streets and waterfront. Sunset Beach provides nice swimming and park amenities for the family.
The Rockport City Marina and Cove Harbor Marinas provide a variety of options for docking boats long term or for the weekend.
