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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Horseback Riding Tours. Step out of South Padre Island to go to Brownsville and see Gladys Porter Zoo, which is approximately 44 minutes away. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle, Inc., discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sea views from Port Isabel Lighthouse, and glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
