Along the Aransas Bay, in the harbor city of Port Aransas, you will find a haven for fishing: Woody's Sports Center. At first, as you pass by the center, you might miss it, as it resembles a residential apartment . But there, by the house, is a sign assuring you that the place is indeed Woody's Sports Center. Here you will find everything you will need for a hassle-free fishing adventure. They also have live bait on offer and charter boats that will take you around the bay or even beyond for a fishing trip. Besides fishing, the center also offers jet-skis for rent, parasailing and boat rides. The center also hosts various entertaining events, like the Powder Puff Ladies Tournament and the Bay Fishing Tournament. See the website or call for more information.

Prices are very fair when compared to other places on the island. Inside there's a little retail shop selling memorabilia and sunglasses.

Roosevelt in 1937 as a place where local birds as a breeding ground for migratory birds, the refuge is a great sanctuary for just about anyone that wants to leave it all behind.

If birds don't interest you, perhaps looking for a white-tailed deer, armadillo or an American alligator is a bit more challenging.
