Fulton is a small town in Texas, about 45 minutes north of Corpus Christi along the Gulf of Mexico. It is along the coast of the Aranasa Bay, with the Gulf of Mexico about 5 miles out across the bay. To the west and north is Copano Bay. A public fishing pier extends across the bay for several miles. It's a small town, but more a regular town than a resort town.
