South Padre Island is a great place to visit. On the way there and on the way back, look at the terrain and see where a great battle was fought. There is only a plaque to mark the battlefield. I would not recommend trying to drive or walk through the battlefield, but you can park by the side of the road and see the battlefield. I've shown that view of the battle field to our sons, who seemed impressed by it mainly by their comments that they were glad they didn't have to be part of that battle in that hot, desolate area.
