San Patricio County, with its 12 incorporated towns, stretches from the fresh water Lake Corpus Christi at Mathis to the salt water bays of Portland, Ingleside and Aransas Pass. Three museums tell the history of the area, one in San Patricio City, the Taft Blackland Museum, and the newly opened Sinton Museum.
This original Texas County will delight history buffs, geo-cachers, bird watchers, kayakers, RVers, wind surfers, golfers, fisherman, skateboarders, water skiers, hunters, shoppers and disc golfers. Numerous aquatic centers welcome families and several are handicapped accessible.
The County offers ready access to the Texas State Aquarium, the Lexington, and the beaches of Mustang and Padre Island. Festivals abound from the Rattlesnake Races at San Patricio, Odem Jubilee, Taft Tamale Eating Contest, Windfest in Portland, to the Round UP Days and Renaissance Festival in Ingleside, and Shrimporee in Aransas Pass to name a few.
