A South Padre Vacation is an ideal family vacation. My family and many others have enjoyed South Padre Island's warm weather and good beaches for years. It's easy to see why families flock to South Padre when you take into account all of its benefits:
1. All sorts of Accommodations . Regardless of your lodging needs, South Padre has something for you. They have camping, hotels, motels, condos, rentals, and other housing options. Whether you like to stay in a top resort hotel or in a budget motel, you will find South Padre to be very accommodating. In addition, the amenities are just as endless as the lodging options. You can get hot tubs, indoor pools, internet access, balconies with beautiful views, exercise facilities, free meals, cooking areas, and plenty of other special services.
2. Great Food is easy to find . As you may guess, South Padre Island is home to some of the best seafood in the world. Red snapper and shrimp are popular choices at a number of their restaurants. However, you can also take advantage of South Padre's location in Texas and near the Mexican border. This means you also get great steaks, burgers, and Mexican food. Plus, there are a number of bars and nightclubs that will be sure to meet your adult beverage needs.
3. Tons of Activities . During the day you can take advantage of all kinds of water activities ranging from windsurfing, snorkeling, kiteboarding, parasailing, boating, dolphin watching tours and many other water activities. At night, you can take beautiful helicopter tours of the island or romantic strolls along the beach or you can even visit the hopping nightlife of South Padre by choosing between dozens of different restaurants, bars, and nightclubs.
4. Fantastic Fishing . Whether you are an experienced fisherman or have never picked up a rod and reel, you will find that South Padre Island fishing is a fun and wonderful experience. You have the option of going bay fishing, deep sea fishing or canyon fishing; however, we personally recommend deep sea fishing for families as it is a new experience that will bring you into contact with interesting aquatic life and is fun whether you are doing the actual fishing or simply watching.
