Rockport is located in Aransas County on the southeast coast of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 8,766. The city is often linked with the nearby town of Fulton and referred to by many locals as "Rockport-Fulton." Rockport has become a popular tourist destination, especially known for its' fishing and ski basin. The city beach includes a playground and pavilion and is the site of several special events, including Oyster Fest, Seafair and the Rockport Wine Festival. Downtown Rockport includes the historic Heritage District, and other attractions include the Maritime Museum, the Fulton Mansion State Historic Site and the Key Allegro Marina.

Some of the natural attractions in the area include "Big Tree," which is the state's oldest live oak tree, located on nearby Lamar Peninsula. The Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is very popular with local birders and organizations and attracts birdwatchers from all over the country. In the wintertime, tours are available of nesting whooping cranes, and Rockport hosts the annual Hummer and Birding Expo.
