Rockport-Fulton invited us to experience the area to see firsthand how much the region has recovered from last year’s devastating hurricane season. This part of the coast was hit especially hard when Harvey made landfall. Over the last year the townspeople, along with support from all over our state (#TexasStrong), have been rebuilding. They want to let vacationers know that #RockportIsBack and ready for tourism! Beaches, activities, restaurants, and accommodations are open for business, and through good ol’ Texan resilience, better than ever. Take that, Harvey!
Where to Stay in Rockport, Texas
What to Do in Rockport-Fulton
Shopping in the Rockport Heritage District. Another way to help the region rebuild is to shop local! There are tons of adorable boutiques and shops in Rockport’s Heritage District, right near the beach and other local attractions like the maritime museum and aquarium.
Texas Maritime Museum. Rockport is home to the Texas Maritime Museum. We loved this museum for its accessibility and its interactive and hands-on offerings that are always ideal for keeping kids engaged. We also loved the view of the region from the museum’s observation deck. This is a must-see for shipping or history-enthused adults, and kids that love to see anything to do with boats, pirates, machines, and shipwreck treasure!
Where to Eat in Rockport-Fulton
The Boiling Pot. This is one of those kind of joints where they slap a bib on ya and pour your crab and crawfish right out onto the table. And man, was it good. We also had exceptional customer service from the staff, and loved the Zydeco music playing through the speakers.
