Beach house rentals, motels, offshore fishing charters, restaurants and souvenir shops are ideal for beach goers in Surfside, Bryan or Quintana Beach.
Fishing is a REEL Attraction! From wade to jetty fishing, to Intracoastal Canal bank fishing and offshore deep-sea fishing, the opportunities are year round and endless. There are dozens of boat ramps, marinas, and bait and tackle shops in the Brazosport Area, making it a boat owner's paradise. For others, the deep Gulf is easily accessible from the many charter and party boats of all sizes that make their headquarters in Freeport and Surfside Beach. Experienced captains and crews make fishing out where the "big ones" are an exciting and enjoyable event.
Yes, our climate is perfect for birding! The combination of location, relatively mild climate, and diverse habitat make the Brazosport Area home and haven to more than 300 bird species. Prairies, hardwood forests, rivers, bayous, marshes, lakes, bays and Gulf of Mexico shoreline characterize this coastal plain.
There is no shortage of activities to entertain people of all ages in the Brazosport Area. Sea Center Texas is home to a Gulf of Mexico aquarium, a red drum fish hatchery, and more.
