Winter Activities Director

We welcome back our winter activities director, Lynda Hain, for another fun-filled winter season! Lynda received rave reviews as activities director last year, and has put together some amazing ideas to keep us busy 7 days a week here at Bay View! With Lynda at the helm we have pool, computerized Wii bowling, bean-bag baseball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, pickle ball, water aerobics, as well as bingo, card bingo, and other group games—getting as many people involved as possible. There’s something for everyone, every day! In addition to these in-house activities, Lynda has also snagged some wonderful guest performers and organized off-site activities to keep us entertained. Holiday activities include a golf cart decoration contest and progressive happy hour, chili cookoff, and a golf cart rodeo! Fun times!

Winter Texans are always having fun at Bay View. Past park activities have included: cowboy hat night, craft sales (warm cinnamon rolls & coffee available), table games & bingo, quality guest entertainers, pool tables, interest groups and more!

Outdoor activities include: pickle ball, shuffleboard on a court refurbished by park volunteers, horseshoes, and even a couple pitch and putt golf holes. Beautiful walks or bike rides in a park-like setting with trees, flowers, and several ponds that attract beautiful birds.

Food always seems to be a Bay View priority with a chili cook-off, holiday parties and dinners, potlucks, pool parties. Affordable Wednesday night dinners and Friday hamburger and hot dog lunches are available at the Family Clubhouse.

Rockport is a vibrant community with holiday activities including a Christmas symphony, an afternoon and evening Tropical Christmas celebration, monthly market days with vendors from all over the state. Fishing, boating, kite flying and beach outings are popular area activities.

The Rockport area enjoys beautiful birding and wildlife viewing areas and if your stay includes the month of April make sure you visit Sandfest in Port Aransas where world-class artists compete with their magnificent beach sand sculptures.

Bay View guests have taken advantage of park sponsored trips to San Antonio, Goliad, Victoria, Mexico, Coushatta Casino and other point of interest. Bay View is a great place to spend the winter season to have fun and make new friends.
