"Can't Miss" Portland Attractions
- Portland Windfest
One of the best family festivals in the Portland area is Windfest. Usually held in mid-April, it's the perfect way to celebrate the Spring season! Windfest features a carnival, arts & crafts, food booths, live music & entertainment, a parade parade, a horseshoe tournament, Dachshund Dash & "All Dog" Costume Parade, and a chili cook-off.
- Corpus Christi Buccaneer Days
For more than 60 years, the city of Corpus Christi, Texas, is briefly captured by dangerous pirates at the beginning of the summer! The pirates help celebrate Buccaneer Days - the opening days of the summer beach season in Corpus Christi. The Buccaneers sail into Corpus Christi, capture the mayor and force him to walk the plank as he announces the arrival of Buccaneer Days! More than 1.2 million people come to Corpus Christi to enjoy Buccaneer Days for rodeos, races, rides, and carnival games. Proceeds from the celebration are used to finance scholarships and other civic programs.
- Sunset Lake Park
Located just a few blocks from our dental office, Sunset Lake Park is nestled between the shores of Nueces Bay and Corpus Christi Bay. It is an ecologically rich wetland and saltwater lake habitat created to provide a range of outdoor activities. Ideal for families, visitors to the park can enjoy a day of fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, hiking, biking and birdwatching.
- Rockport-Fulton Seafair Celebration
40 years ago, the idea for Seafair was created by Bill Christian in Rockport, TX. He believed the Portland, TX area needed a celebration in the fall to fill the quiet season between the influx summer visitors and when winter tourists arrive. The Seafair has grown over the years and includes a parade, arts & crafts, live music, water entertainement and a gumbo cookoff.
Our Favorite Portland, TX Restaurants
We don't just love La Iguana Restaurant because it's across from our dental office! Their carne asada tacos are a must-have. Fajitas, chalupas, enchiladas and margaritas are some of our other favorite dishes to try when we visit.
Butter Churn restaurant off Marshall Lane is a perfect spot for classic home cooking. The steak and fried chicken are always cooked perfectly. Be sure to wash down whatever you choose with a tall glass of sweet tea.
There's no doubt the Portland location of Mike Cotten's BBQ lives up to the hype. They serve up delicious brisket, ribs, and smoked turkey in a laid-back, family atmosphere. Make sure to ask for cotton candy after your meal!
