A vibrant resort town, South Padre Island sits on a barrier island of the same name, located just off the Texas Gulf Coast.
Get outdoors at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Horseback Riding Tours. Step off the beaten path and head to Laguna Madre Nature Trail and Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site. Change things up with a short trip to Sabal Palm Sanctuary in Brownsville (about 42 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle, Inc., soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, cast your line with a fishing tour, and make a trip to Largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA.
