We take a trip to Port Arkansas just about every summer and absolutely love this little town. We can't say enough good things about our time here.

The water was only around 68 degrees in March, but I am sure it is warmer now. In regards to diversity, there were people from all walks of life. I met people from all over the country and several foreigners.
