South Padre Island, Texas

Right off the southern tip of Texas is the sunny, subtropical paradise of South Padre Island. This barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico offers a year-round getaway from the daily grind. Gaze at a magnificent sunset from the flats, laze on the white sandy shoreline, get active with water sports galore, or go fishing and cook your catch. Take a dolphin-watch tour, look for more than 300 species of birds at the SPI Birding & Nature Center, and don’t forget to sample plenty of fresh Gulf seafood.
