A vibrant resort town, South Padre Island sits on a barrier island of the same name, located just off the Texas Gulf Coast.
Escape the urban bustle at Laguna Madre Nature Trail and Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site. Step off the beaten path and head to Boca Chica State Park and Sabal Palm Sanctuary. Step out of South Padre Island with an excursion to Children’s Museum of Brownsville in Brownsville--about 48 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Port Isabel Historical Museum, stop by Paragraphs on Padre Boulevard, and look for all kinds of wild species at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center.
