Texas Is A RVer’s Wonderland; Rockport & Fulton TX

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times…and I’ll say it a thousand more times to boot: I LOVE TEXAS! As an RVer, I truly believe there is no greater state in the Union that has more to see, more to do and more to explore. Texas is overflowing with mountains, hill country, plains, farmlands, amazing forests, lakes, rivers, tributaries and coastal regions. If a RVer ever says they’ve seen everything they can see in Texas, I’d challenge them to reevaluate their previous destinations and dig a little deeper. Texas is ripe with must-visit small towns like Shiner, Gruene and New Braunfels all of which have an amazing amount of sites to see, things to do and stuff to buy. In fact, PPL Motorhomes has a location in New Braunfels, so you can even shop for RVs and RV Parts and Accessories while you visit.

Today, I’d like to clue you in on a great RV adventure area in the Gulfport cities of Rockport and Fulton, TX. If you’ve ever had the joy of traveling down the Texas Coastal bend, you will be able to visit some of the most scenic, friendly and adventurous towns and places in Texas. Rockport and Fulton aren’t necessarily considered twin cities, but their communities overlap, which makes for one amazing RV destination. There are multiple RV parks in the area, so you won’t have a problem finding a hook up.

Here’s a great little historical video I found done by a Texas A&M student who lived in Rockport since the age of 6. Check it out, it has some really great information.

If you aren’t inspired to visit the Coastal Bend, specifically Rockport and Fulton after seeing that, well, maybe you should watch it again. There are so many things to do, they are too numerous to list here, but here’s a few “Don’t Miss” stops: Blue Wave Beach, The Fulton Museum, The Texas Maritime Museum, The Salt Flats, The Fulton Fishing Pier and more!

Sun, sand, water and fun. As soon as summer rolls around, we are going back down for another visit. It might even become a yearly destination for RV Nana and family. Of course the best part of visiting the Gulf Coast is that, if you are coming from North Texas, or the Hill country, you can stop by PPL Motorhomes in Houston and PPL Motorhomes in New Braunfels for any supplies, parts or accessories you might need. We can even suggest other places to visit on your way to the Texas Gulf Coast!

Consignment RV Center, PPL Motorhomes Says, Take Advantage Of The Texas Coast

Now, right at this moment, Hurricane Issac is battering the eastern side of the Gulf Coast, not as severe at Katrina, but certainly severely enough that when all is said an done there will be millions of dollars worth of damage. All of us at your used RV center, PPL Motorhomes are hoping the damage is kept to a minimum and the those affected can get back on their feet again. I hope the read my “Hurricane Preparedness” blogs recently.

Now that being said, hurricanes aside, the Texas’ Gulf Coast region alone is an amazing place for an RV adventure. Texas offers over 600 miles of coastline on the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, with many beautiful beaches and beach camping parks to choose from. Some of the most popular beaches include Corpus Christi Beach, McGee Beach, Padre Balli County Park, J.P. Luby Surf Park, East Beach Park, Seawall Beaches, Stewart Beach, Galveston Island State Park, Padre Island National Seashore, Beaches of Mustang Island (Port Aransas) and the South Padre Island Beaches. So much to choose from!

As summer is winding down and the cooler weather is coming in off of the Gulf, it might be a good time to take a little weekend trip to your favorite Texas beach and do a little relaxing, fishing or whatever might float your boat…pun intended. Now this is hurricane season, so be sure to keep an eye on any storms that may be developing further out in the Gulf. The last thing you’d want is to be caught on the beach in a RV!

If you have any questions about what beaches are good places to visit, don’t hesitate to call your consignment RV center, PPL Motorhomes. We’ve all spent some good times camping on the coastline. Plus the crowds should be clearing out now that school is back in session. It really will make for a fun weekend trip.
