For a peaceful getaway, try Arroyo City

Arroyo City is a quaint and charming community in eastern Texas, just a stone’s throw from the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. This pretty area is home to dozens of vacation rentals in Arroyo City, offering travelers a chance to enjoy its tranquil, relaxed atmosphere and plentiful fishing spots. Indeed, many of the vacation rentals in the area will put you conveniently on the banks of rivers, streams, and lakes. Sometimes you’ll even get a boat and equipment included in the rent of your accommodation.

Fish in tranquility in Arroyo City

Fishing is the number 1 pastime in Arroyo City. Situated right on the banks of the Arroyo Colorado river, Arroyo City offers no shortage of calm, quiet and uncrowded fishing spots. Many vacation rentals in Arroyo City have their own river frontage and docks, so keep an eye out for a water-side house or cottage if you’re hoping for a fishing vacation. If your rental doesn’t give you access to a fishing spot, you can always head to the nearby Adolph Thomae Jr. Park where you can also go camping or treat the family to a delicious picnic.

Plan a golf day or explore wildlife from Arroyo City

The main attractions for most visitors are the outdoor activities, from swimming and boating to fishing and birdwatching. However, if you need to change things up a bit, there are several highly-rated golf courses clustered around Rio Hondo, a slightly larger town just 10 miles southwest of Arroyo City. Also relatively nearby is the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, a family-friendly 98,000-acre wildlife refuge that offers tours to admire native birds, plants, and wildlife.

Expect good weather all year round in Arroyo City

Thanks to its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, Arroyo City treats visitors to a tropical climate. Seasonal shifts are limited, with daily highs in the coldest parts of the year still reaching above 70 degrees. Expect hot, sunny days most of the year, particularly in the summer and late spring. Booking your Arroyo City vacation rental near the river or the Gulf of Mexico will ensure pleasant weather in which to enjoy water pursuits to the max, or go hiking to investigate the wildlife of the area.

Find your way back to nature in Arroyo City

Arroyo City and its surrounding areas are largely undeveloped, which means the area’s natural ecosystems are greatly preserved. The rivers and streams teem with vibrant fish populations, including trout, tarpon, snook, and redfish, while the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge is home to antelope, deer, feral hogs, ocelot, and dozens of species of birds. The remote, natural feel of Arroyo City is what draws many people to the area. If you’d prefer a beachier, more coastal environment, though, South Padre Island is just an hour away by car. The barrier island stretches into the Gulf of Mexico and is a resort destination for many honeymooners and spring breakers.
