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.
Relax by the water at Isla Blanca Park and Boca Chica State Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Laguna Madre Nature Trail and Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site. Explore South Padre Island's surroundings by going to Brownsville (Sabal Palm Sanctuary, Resaca de la Palma State Park, & more). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, meet the residents at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

For maps, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, use the South Padre Island road trip planning tool .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
