This week my producer came up with the idea of providing some pictures of a few of the hotels in Port Aransas. One of the most famous is the Tarpon Inn. It was here that President Roosevelt stayed in 1937 and signed a Tarpon scale. Here is the sign in front of the hotel.
If you look closely (well you can’t see it) there is a replica of the Tarpons scale signed by FDR. Here is a closeup that will help.
The next sign is all kinds of fun. Each of the cottages is named in keeping with the horse theme.
Notice only good dogs are okay to stay. This next sign is for an aviation themed motel. The sign says it all.
The building is attractive as well.
I have always liked this sign. The cottages have fish names which make it tough to enter the wrong room. “Oh excuse me this is the Dorado room. I was looking for the Perch room.”
I particularly like the fact they have a jungle gym at this place. The next is also a themed resort. If you can’t dance, you can’t stay here. (Just kidding)
This next one is a big puzzle. Here is a look at the outside.
Here is what goes on inside.
Here is what it looks like in there. What you have is tents, community showers and roughing it. Sounds like fun. (for a day)
This last one is included not for its beauty but for the idea represented by the name. (This one is under construction.)
You have to admire the name The Place. (Makes one wonder about staying anywhere else.)Hope you liked the tour.
