I attended a youth Christian conference here and thought it was fantastic! It was kept very clean and was a nice space for the conference. The staff did a great job setting everything up for our event. I am looking forward to attending again next year!

The broad walk was very nice. This is an excellent place to visit if you are looking to save a few dollars. We were able to see many different birds, spanning beds of fish and an alligator.

I liked the many photographing opportunities. You walk beyond the actual convention centre above the water and water birds on a board walk. We saw spoon bills, redwing black birds, and many heron. There is a rumor that even an alligator hangs out there.

For first timers it is a must to spend a few minutes with the staff. They have coupons books and all the info you need to select a hotel or a restaurant.

free access to very good boardwalks that extend over a marsh to water's edge on the bay side of South Padre Island plus a treed and sheltered area near the main building where feeders are placed make this a great location to observe seasonal migrants. Washrooms are available and close at 1700 (!) Parking is convenient and legal.

I love the Wyland Whale walls and am working on seeing as many as I can. This wall is spectacular (like the others!). The birds were pretty amazing too of course.

I attended an Island Market Day event here, flea market type thing was going on, I enjoyed this event and the building just fine, seemed like the perfect place to hold an event like this. On another day I went back to get pictures of the Whaling wall, and walk the complimentary boardwalk. Facility was well maintained, plenty of parking.

Be sure to stop here as you come on the island as they have a lot of free information and coupons for your stay. A very friendly staff and knowledgeable. Sometimes they have large sand sculptures in the lobby.

Been to many events - but the facility is pretty much a big box. Events decorate, but not much else to brag about. Seems like the Center could do lots more to bring in top notch events, but private places (Clayton's and Shlitterbahn) are taking over the entertainment worlds. Didn't use to be that way - but Center has weak... More
