It, too, has an adjoining outdoor covered veranda, with a small catering kitchen and a unisex restroom inside the meeting room.
Located on Aransas Bay, adjacent to Fulton Park and walking distance to Fulton Harbor, local restaurants and motels, the Paws and Taws Convention Center is a local landmark. Utilized for every type of event, it is a 7,608 square foot facility with a 1,488 square-foot covered back deck which overlooks Aransas Bay. Accommodating up to 400 people, the building is one of the few in the area large enough to accommodate business seminars, conventions and educational programs.

The East side features a wall of windows that look out over the rear deck and to beautiful Aransas Bay.
