Port Aransas has become the go-to destination for folks who travel each winter to escape the frozen winter months in the northern United States and Canada.

With the joint efforts of the City of Port Aransas Parks and Recreation Department and the Port Aransas Community Theatre, there are plenty of activities to fill their days.

Exercise classes, line dancing, card games, crafts and more are offered from December through March.

In addition, many of the RV parks and condominiums that house Winter Texans during the winter months provide activities for their residents.

The University of Texas Marine Science Institute (UTMSI) and the Port Aransas Preservation and Historical Association (PAPHA) offer free winter lecture series on topics of interest to many folks.

Keep up with what activities are scheduled each week with the Port A Winter Activities calendar that can be found in weekly issues of the South Jetty newspaper.
