These days, you’ll find nothing but blue skies and sun at Majestic Oak Resort! Come spend a long weekend with us and take advantage of the beautiful weather. The Coastal Bend has a variety of environments for nature lovers.

Goose Island State Park

A day trip to Goose Island lets you enjoy a scenic sanctuary along St. Charles Bay and Aransas Bay. You can fish from shore, boat, or the spectacular 1,620 foot pier without needing a license. The park even has its own fish cleaning station and a loaner program if you don’t have fishing gear. The park is a bird-watcher’s dream, with oak trees providing shelter for many different species. You can even check out a tree that has stood for over 1,000 years. Don’t forget your camera! For more information, check out http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/goose-island .

Aransas National Wildlife Refuge

The Aransas Refuge attracts over 400 species of birds throughout the year, making it a must-stop, especially during migration season. The refuge’s habitat of barrier islands, with shallow saltwater bays that eventually lead to freshwater marsh, showcases a wide diversity of animal and plant life for explorers to enjoy. But the unique setting doesn’t stop there. The refuge features savannahs and woodlands filled with oak trees and sandy prairies that are home to bees, butterflies, and wildflowers. You might even spot some white-tailed deer or raptors. Grab a field guide, take an auto tour, or participate in one of the many programs offered at the refuge. You’re sure to find something for every member of the family. Plan your visit at https://www.fws.gov/refuge/aransas/ .

Mustang Island State Park

Craving sand between your toes? Mustang Island has over five miles of coastline just waiting for you. Build sandcastles, surf, and picnic on this pristine barrier island. You can even try your hand at finding hidden objects in the park through the Texas State Parks Geocaching Challenge, guaranteed to bring out the inner explorer in everyone! You can even bring or rent a canoe or kayak and follow a portion of the 20 miles of paddling trails, getting you up close and personal to coastal birds and vegetation.

Looking for a fun night out this Christmas season? “A Christmas Story: The Musical” should be on your list of activities. When the musical ran on Broadway, it received rave reviews. The musical is based on the quirky, classic movie, A Christmas Story. You could watch the movie, but why not try something different?

The story is set in 1940s Indiana and follows 9-year-old Ralphie. He dreams of getting his perfect Christmas gift: an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. The musical score features a wide range of music to enhance Ralphie’s search for his own Holy Grail. Follow along as Ralphie plots and schemes to get his BB gun.

If you’ve never seen the movie, don’t worry! The musical presents the complete story, so you haven’t missed anything. You’ll laugh at Ralphie’s misadventures while cheering on his quest.

If you’re a fan of the film, you’ll enjoy experiencing the similarities. You’ll also love all the new aspects that make the musical unique. The iconic scenes from the movie are all included, as well as the famous leg lamp and bunny suit. Visit the Chinese restaurant. Watch Flick get his tongue stuck to the flagpole. Experience it all over again!

Every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, businesses all over the country participate in Small Business Saturday. This event was founded by American Express in 2010 to offset some of the business lost to major retailers on the day after Thanksgiving, otherwise known as “Black Friday.” Many businesses in the Rockport-Fulton area are participating in Small Business Saturday this year, and there has truly never been a better time to support local businesses than this year, post-Hurricane Harvey. Whether you’re a local reading this or a visitor to Majestic Oak Resort, we hope that on Small Business Saturday, as well as the rest of the year, you’ll help support the local businesses that keep our community going and are still recovering from the devastation of Harvey.

The event will take place on Saturday, November 25 th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at participating businesses in the Rockport-Fulton area.

The first weekend in November brings the Rockport Film Festival to our shore every year, and this year is no exception! The festival showcases independent cinema and was created to serve the community by providing arts programming and encouraging cultural tourism. Accordingly, festival organizers decided the best way to serve Rockport this year, post-Harvey, was to make the Friday and Saturday screenings free so everyone who wants to can participate. The Thursday night Red Carpet Event still requires a paid ticket, and includes a reception with local food and refreshments as well as the premiere night film screening.

This year, 30% of the films showcased are international and 30% are from Texas, with the remainder from across the United States. Five of the films are full-length features and four 90-minute blocks will showcase the six to eight short films. You’ll have a chance to see films categorized as documentaries, fiction, and animated, as well as a student film.

All Friday and Saturday screenings are free this year and will take place in the Education Center of the Texas Maritime Museum. To purchase a VIP Red Carpet Party ticket for $75, you can go to the website here . The VIP Party takes place on the lawn at the Fulton-Bruhl House.

For more information about the festival, please visit their website here .

We’ve posted some updates on the status of Majestic Oak Resort and are happy to say that we are now open and able to take reservations!
