Fulton is a small town in Texas, just north of Rockport and 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 more a regular small town than a resort town.
There is also a very nice, from all appearances as viewed by a non-aviator, airport in Fulton.
Transit is primarily via automobile.

- Charlotte Plummers Seafare, 202 N. Fulton Beach Rd (Along Fulton Beach), ☎ . Very good service and food. A view of the bay and docks. Dinner around $18 per person.
There are a number of places to stay right along the coast, many with piers extending out into the bay. Some of them even look like they'd support a person walking along them or fishing from them. Some are in pretty questionable shape.
