South Padre Island

South Padre Island ©
A vibrant resort town, South Padre Island sits on a barrier island of the same name, located just off the Texas Gulf Coast.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Boca Chica State Park and Isla Blanca Park. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge and Laguna Madre Nature Trail. When in South Padre Island, make a side trip to see Sabal Palm Sanctuary in Brownsville, approximately 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, don't miss a visit to Largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

In October, daytime highs in South Padre Island are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
