“Rain, rain, go away” doesn’t have to be your mantra when the clouds show up and a storm is ‘a-brewing. Just because Port Aransas is known for its beaches–and for good reason–doesn’t mean a little rain shower has to ruin your vacation. Below are three ways, from morning to night, that you can make the most of a rainy day in Port A.




Curl up at Coffee Waves

Waking up to rain can be a bummer, so turn your morning right around by grabbing your favorite beach read and heading to Coffee Waves. There, you can curl up on a leather couch or cozy armchair and enjoy the coastal ambiance. Might we suggest ordering a “Hug in a Mug?” The combo of coconut and chai will instantly brighten any rainy day.

Build a Boat at Farley Boat Works

Farley Boat Works is an extension of the Port Aransas Museum (another great rainy day option) and a bastion of the town’s history. You can simply sit and enjoy the clamoring and clanging of unique boats being built by expert hands, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can take part by signing up for a boat-building class!




Wine Tasting at Island Wine

Island Wine brings wine country to the coast and would be the perfect night cap to a stormy day. Boasting a selection of wines ranging from across the entire Texas Hill Country, Island Wine’s tastings will bring out the connoisseur in you. Plus, with yoga on Wednesdays, Bingo on Thursdays, and karaoke every Friday, who even needs to go outdoors?

Don’t let the rain, well…rain on your parade. Port Aransas has plenty to offer that will turn your rainy day into the rainbow of your whole trip. All you have to do is grab your umbrella and get out there!
