Air Conditioning Repair & Service Ingleside, TX
Bodine-Scott Air Conditioning Co.: Here to Serve Our Ingleside Neighbors
Ingleside, Texas is one of the smaller, cozier, more affordable, and more family-friendly communities, nestled among the larger cities of the Texas Coastal Bend. The friendly town, located 18 miles northeast of Corpus Christi and situated in San Patricio County, offers the perfect South Texas escape from the big city. The town’s leisurely pace and its abundantly beautiful natural geographical features contribute to its popularity among young families, retirees, and everyone in between.
The Ingleside community has earned its place as one of the state’s finest centers of ecotourism based partly on the above-mentioned geographical factors, partly on its choice as a home port of Naval Station Ingleside, and partly on the fact that the town is part of the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. With an estimated population of 9,376 in 2011 (according to U.S. Census Bureau figures), Ingleside is the second-fastest growing Coastal Bend community.
Through its numerous parks Ingleside offers both visitors and residents popular activities like skateboarding, disc-golf, and other outdoor sports. Its wetlands, docks, and free public boat ramp provide ample opportunities for bird-watching, fishing, and boating. The Whitney Lake Natural Habitat portion of the 35-acre Whitney Lake Marsh Park offers the unprecedented beauty of local flora, fauna, water fowl, and various marine species native to the Coastal Bend. Live Oak Park, which is located in South Ingleside, is site #55 on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. The park offers visitors 90 acres of majestic oaks and – along with its tennis and basketball courts, softball field, nature trails, and playground – also features an 18-hole disc-golf course. Other, smaller, local parks include Cove Park, Faith Park, and Oak Park, which offer various outdoor activities.
Ingleside is said to have been named by John W. Vineyard, one of the early landowners in the new community, who reportedly named the town Ingleside (which means “Fireside”) in honor of his ancestral home in Scotland. Once a flourishing and profitable grape- and wine-producing area, Ingleside was forced to find other means of sustaining its economy in the 1930s, after the vines introduced by George Hatch and his son John in the 1880s were destroyed by blight. After facing varying periods of prosperity and hardship, the city of Ingleside was finally incorporated in 1951, following the building of aluminum and metal fabrication plants by Brauer Corporation and Reynolds Metal. When it was first incorporated, the town had only 850 residents.
Ingleside’s subtropical climate brings hot, humid summers and mild, pleasant winters, with an average 220 sunny days a year to help you make the most of your visit. July highs average a warm 89 degrees, with January lows averaging a comfortable 51.
