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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site and Children’s Museum of Brownsville. Step out of the city life by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Sea Turtle, Inc.. Explore South Padre Island's surroundings by going to Freddy Fender Museum (in San Benito) and Brownsville (Stillman House Museum, Historic Brownsville Museum, & more). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center, get to know the fascinating history of Laguna Madre Nature Trail, get engrossed in the history at Port Isabel Historical Museum, and meet the residents at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center.
