When you’re looking for a kid-friendly restaurant or a unique place to waste an hour or two, you’ll find many near our Port Aransas condo rentals. We encourage travelers to check out the Travel Guide, where you’ll find many fun things to do in Port Aransas, Texas. Here are a couple of noteworthy stops to add to your list!  

Winton’s Candy Company

After the little ones exhaust themselves after a day of running on the beach, stop into Winton’s Candy Company to pick up a small stash of unique candies. The candy shop feels like a classic hidden gem with vintage signage decor on the walls, old-school toys on display and yes, even fresh homemade fudge. Nothing pairs better with an oceanside view than a bag of saltwater taffy in hand. Pick up bonbons, jelly beans, jawbreakers, savory caramels, delicious chocolates, and so much more. While you’re there, try the walnut caramels or the caramel peanut fudge, and you’ll even be able to sample before you buy! 

Seafood and Spaghetti Works 

While you’re near the ocean indulging in fresh seafood fare will be an absolute must during your Port Aransas escapes. Seafood and Spaghetti Works is a kid-friendly restaurant that will please the entire family with their versatile menu options. The salad bar alone is a show-stopper, so when you’re looking for a light lunch before the beach, this will be a great stop. You’ll find excellent Italian options from spaghetti with meatballs, pizza, to shrimp bolognese among many other delicious seafood creations. There’s also a children’s play section in Stephanie’s Stuff, a little gift shop on-site filled with children items, neat shoes, unique gifts, cheerful cards, and more.
