What to Do in Rockport, Texas
Photographer: Michael Hanson

What to Do

Grab your fishing pole and cast from one of the wooden piers at Rockport Beach or Goose Island State Park. To get on the water, contact Rockport Birding and Kayaking Adventures. At night, cheer on the Dallas Cowboys at the Pickled Pelican sports bar; on the weekends, check out events celebrating art, gardens, and angling.

Inviting shops are also found on and around Austin Street downtown. Buy fine art at the Austin Street Gallery and acrylic paintings and pottery in Coastal Creations, and then head north to pick out fashion and home décor finds at The Bay Window (left), one block off the water.
