Wayland's wall is a must to see on your visit. This is a great place to take pictures and walk around.

The center itself is a great place to attend an event. Very nice. They have kindly planted for birds and butterflies, around the back is a boardwalk that takes you out for a view of the Laguna Madre. Good place to visit worth it even if there isn't an event going on.

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.
