Families Are Choosing Road Trips And Beach Vacays

Such trends are making Cinnamon Shore a prime destination.

Road tripping and lounging on a beach beat all other vacation options in a 2020 survey by Twiddy and Company, an Outer Banks vacation rental company. In a poll of 1,000 Americans, 72% said they preferred to drive to their destination. The survey also found 42% valued quality and comfort, while 29% valued cleanliness. 

That bodes well for Cinnamon Shore, which prides itself on quality, comfort and cleanliness--especially during the pandemic. With more vacationers looking closer to home and many discovering Cinnamon Shore for the first time, our village in Port Aransas is experiencing record rentals numbers. They're learning that Cinnamon Shore, located just a few hours drive from most Texas metro areas, offers a resort-style beach vacation that wasn't available just 10 years ago on the Texas Coast. Our New Urban-inspired master planning has resulted in a true village with heart and soul. Cinnamon Shore North now boasts three community pools, scenic green spaces a fitness center and growing retail row that now includes Coffee Waves, serving java and gelato; The Bottle Shoppe, a well-stocked liquor store; The Market, selling essential groceries and Cinnamon Shore-branded merchandise; and Dylan's Coal-Oven Pizzeria, with a full bar and menu that goes far beyond pizza to pastas, seafood and more. Almost completely built out, the community is a showcase for coastal architecture, with plenty of  luxury homes, cottages and condos available  to rent.

Close to home

While many beach  lovers have made the trek to Florida or California to get their fix, savvy Texans are realizing that Cinnamon Shore offers the same type of experience as resort towns along popular Hwy. 30A near Destin and Panama City. It's just a whole lot closer. From Dallas, it's a 6.5 hour-drive; from Houston, 3.75-hour drive; Austin, 3.5-hour drive; and from San Antonio, just 2.5 hour-drive.
