TPW TV–Mustang Island

This is Passport to Texas

Are you considering a coastal getaway with the family this summer, but wondering where to go? This month the Texas Parks and Wildlife Television PBS series takes you to an island retreat that offers recreation and relaxation for the whole family. Producer Abe Moore.

57—[:02 ocean ambiance] As a producer and a dad, I’m always looking for stories or places where it’s kid friendly, or something great for the family. And Mustang Island [State Park], it’s just a great place for kids, and then as a parent, you can kind of just hang out.

People, when they come out to the island, they’re looking for relaxation. So, the minute they get here and get set up, that’s all they’re looking to do—just sit back, relax and take it at their own pace.

It’s also a great place for fishing, and beach combing and birding. When I was out there filming, there was a lot of kite surfing going on, so that was really cool. What’s really nice about it, it’s right there in the central part of the coast.

In Texas, I don’t think a lot of people realize within hours you can be here. And when you sit out in this breeze coming off the water, it’s just great.

So that story’s going to be on Texas Parks and Wildlife television in the fourth week of June. Enjoy! [:02 ocean ambiance fades]

Thanks, Abe.
