1. Idyllic Weather

Fall brings with it cooler weather. However, temperatures are still perfect for exploring the outdoor attractions in this Texas town. Daily highs still range from the mid-60s to the mid-80s. You also get a slight break from the humidity thanks to sea breezes. 

2. Smaller Crowds

One of the biggest advantages to planning your Port Aransas vacation for the fall is not having to compete with summer crowds. The impact of smaller crowds can be felt in all aspects of your getaway. You won’t have to wait as long before dining at popular restaurants like Ire’s Island Food or Tortuga’s Saltwater Grill. You can still enjoy the perfect beach day without fighting for somewhere to spread your towel out.

3. Memorable Events

October in Port Aransas is better known as Beachtober! The month is filled with several memorable events and festivals. Start off the month with a weekend-long music festival. The third weekend is all about celebrating the island’s history. With so many things taking place, chances are there is some type of happening that lines up with your visit.
