Crystal Beach Properties

February 27th, 2015

It’s almost summer time.  While sitting in my office freezing in this cold weather, I am day dreaming about laying on a beach with a cold drink in my hand, soaking up the sun’s rays. Being a native from Beaumont, Crystal Beach has always been a go to place on summer vacations or weekend getaways. It’s roughly an hour away so it is an easy drive. I have had the pleasure to work more often down at Crystal Beach and it has been a blast. Crystal Beach has a lot to offer. Below are some activities that you can do while visiting Crystal Beach.

Bird Sanctuaries

The area’s bird sanctuaries are full of visitors this time of year and people come from all over the world to experience the spring migration of hundreds of bird species that travel along the Gulf Coast and beyond as they head northward.

Fishing

Fishing

Rollover Pass is considered one of the premier fishing spots on the upper Texas coast.  From offshore fishing to surf fishing, there is plenty to entertain the most experienced to new beginners at Crystal Beach. A great place to visit is Stingaree Restaurant and Marina. Not only do they have fabulous food, they also have a marina which offers concrete ramps, gas, ice, beer and bait. They will even cook anything you catch for the day.

Camping

Camping

Crystal Beach is a popular destination thanks to its permitting of camping and fires. Camping is allowed anywhere on the 27 miles of beaches of Crystal Beach and Bolivar Peninsula. You can drive the beach and pick a spot to set up camp.

Texas Crab Festival

An upcoming event at Crystal Beach that is really popular is the Texas Crab Festival May 8th-10th. Yes, it’s Mother’s Day weekend, so bring your mom and treat her to some great local seafood and entertainment! Keller Williams Realty of SETX is a proud sponsor of this event, so I will definately be there!

Fantastic Investment/Business Opportunity!

This is a great, fully furnished and equipped home health care facility. There are seven bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, with multiple patient beds in some bedrooms. Great open living area and back sunroom for entertaining, mingling, and activities. Lovely outdoor seating areas to enjoy those nice, sunny days. The home also features two whole house generators. This would be a perfect home for anyone who needs extra care that family cannot provide on their own. There is also a luxurious feel to the home that many patients would love.  Another deciding factor for many who put their loved ones in a home health facility is location. One may love a home, but a question many ask themselves is, “What does the city have to offer?”

 Port Arthur is Rich in History
