Gearing up for Summer and Advice from a Local

With Summer getting closer and the countdown to school getting out coming near we are gearing up for visitors here at Ash Cart Rental. Major Holiday weeks are filling up and we suggest you BOOK NOW! We had an amazing off season and are so thankful for all of our returning Winter Texans that keep us busy in the Winter.

Since we live here we get lots of phone calls asking us suggestions other than carts. When you are planning your trip to Port A it’s important to book your adventures ahead of time. Because summer is the busy season almost every weekend is Sold Out of carts on the Island. Some other things you might not think of is if you plan on going on a Fishing Trip you want to book that prior to getting into town because Charter Boats are booked as well. Lodging is also an important….Now I know everyone wants a good deal but here is the honest truth. If you plan on coming on a major holiday weekend there is no deals. You might find a last min deal where someone canceled but booking in advance does not save you money on major holidays.

Also a lot of people ask me what is there to do here other than the beach….? Lots! I have to brag and say that some of our restaurants are the best seafood I have had and I travel a lot. My favorite fish plate comes from The Phoenix and the BEST CRAB CAKE IN TOWN (my option only) is at Jay’s Seafood and Spaghetti works. A great lunch spot would be Hog Island you defiantly should stop in and see John and enjoy some of his awesome fish tacos or any of his amazing daily specials.

If you are looking go out for drinks then you have to go to Back Porch Club or Black Marlin for Happy Hour but you can not end the night without enjoying the great atmosphere at Treasure Island. Treasure Island is where my husband and I go on a date night. We can enjoy live music and great drinks. All I can say is “it’s where the locals hang out.”

I couldn’t write this blog post without giving myself a shoutout. If you have ever thought about buying a vacation property call me and lets talk.
