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

Attended a Big N Rich concert here over memorial weekend 2013 and had a great time. Ticket prices weren't too bad and they had a good beer selection, a couple food stands, and ample restrooms available. Wish they had more concerts here.

We didn't go in the Convention Center, but the free access to the fabulous birding behind the Center is a great gift from the City of South Padre Island.

The venue is large but very outdated and needs some work. Also sad to see that the South Padre Historical Museum had one display up but would truly have like to have more available there about the island since I spend so much time there.

A lot of people trade and sell things. It is air conditioned and clean and so are the restrooms. A wide variety of items sold and the snacks aren't too bad either. No pressure to buy.
