Aransas Pass is the in between town before you can get to Port Aransas and Rockport. It has two bay areas that are good for fishing and boating, a local recreation center for families to swim at with two slides, a kitty pool that offers plenty of fun water play for kids and a big pool for everyone else. It has a park located next to the recreation center but other wise than that, nothing much. It has a Wal-mart, McDonalds, Popeyes, Church's chicken, a few asian and mexican restaurants, a few mom and pop shops, a couple of banks and elementary, middle and high school.
There really isn't much to do in Aranasas Pass so most people go to Port Aransas for the beach and for shopping and better dining choices, there's Corpus Christi.
