Crystal Beach, Texas The Calm After The Storm Of Labor Day Weekend!

Crystal Beach, Texas enjoys the calm after the storm of Labor Day Weekend.

We all look forward to the Spring Weather, Spring Tides and Spring Break to kick-off another year of Fun in the Sun, but for most business owners this was a relaxing week of enjoying family time and playing catch-up. The beach has been awesome, clean and light traffic which for a few they've been able to enjoy. Crowds have been light and will be for a few weeks as school is underway. Restaurants are restocking from a massive Labor Day Weekend and all is looking great!!! For those that have time to get away, now is the time. A cool front may bless us towards the end of next week, beach has light traffic and the lines at the Big Store and area restaurants is little to none. Vacation rental pricing are reduced for those wishing to make an extended stay for a week or two, now's the time. Nights are a little cooler as long as the breeze is there and the sunrise over the Texas Gulf is moving back to sea, if you're looking for a get-away for a week or weekend now's the time to.... Explore Bolivar'll love it!!!
