Bordered by inland bays and the Gulf of Mexico, the area boasts of more than 560 miles of coastline, making it a hot spot for tourists and boaters. Easy access to the Gulf via the Port O'Connor jetties makes this one of the most popular fishing resorts on the entire Texas coast. With the abundance of water, coastal prairies, and marshes, Calhoun County is also favorite place for birders and photographers and is home to more than 400 species of birds and eight birding sites along the Texas Birding Trail. The county's visitor-friendly population of 21,000 even doubles on some weekends, such as the Fourth of July.
