Port Aransas is about four hours away from Austin and is one of the longest barrier islands along the Texas coast. It's now become a fishing, beach and resort village, and the weather is incredibly nice (though be prepared for extreme humidity and lots of sunscreens, or sunburns, in our case).
Handies Douzo is an intimate sushi spot that is great for dates. They focus on the exquisite hand roll; basically, it’s a sushi roll wrapped in nori, but uncut, so you get to dive into the entirety of a sushi roll. And it is so good and so difficult to not just scarf down the entire roll.

After dining here a few times, I can confidently say that Nobu has some nice food, but I am not going to lie to you - Nobu is a straight-up DINING EXPERIENCE.
