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.
We've included these beaches for you: Isla Blanca Park and Boca Chica State Park. Children’s Museum of Brownsville and Historic Brownsville Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Explore South Padre Island's surroundings by going to Freddy Fender Museum (in San Benito) and Brownsville (Gladys Porter Zoo, Old City Cemetery, & more). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Laguna Madre Nature Trail, get engrossed in the history at Port Isabel Historical Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Sea Turtle, Inc., and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To see traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our South Padre Island road trip planning site .

Expect a daytime high around 77°F in April, and nighttime lows around 68°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
