This week, we’re talking to Greg Smith from Pioneer Beach Resort in Port Aransas. This beach town is just two and a half hours from San Antonio, and three and a half hours from Austin. The beautiful area draws in Winter Texans every year, who find themselves staying longer into spring as the beautiful Texas wildflowers bloom. Local Texans also enjoy the park during the summer, as it offers easy access to the beach. Just walk or drive your golf cart over their boardwalk to the water, and let your troubles float away.
Pioneer Beach Resort started in 1995, initially attracting Winter Texans. Now the park sees visitors all year-round, with some guests staying the whole time. They’ve even had kids return who used to camp at Pioneer with their parents when they were younger. The park is home to 361 one full-hookups with concrete pads. The sites fit any make and any size RV, and their friendly staff can help guide you into your spot.
This time of year is beautiful in Port Aransas, with spring blooms, great fishing, and plenty of summer sun. Relax and unwind near the waves and feel the sand between your toes. Visit their website for more information.
