When looking for a summer holiday destination in Texas, it is hard to beat a trip to the Gulf of Mexico for some sun and sand. For an exciting but affordable family vacation destination, South Padre Island is a good choice. You will find year-round warm weather, wonderful beaches and lots of activities to keep the family busy. This isn’t just a family destination: South Padre Island is popular with solo travelers and couples as well. South Padre Island is a water lover’s paradise, with jet skiing, parasailing and great surfing on offer, plus amazing beaches to explore and the Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark for a fun day out. If you love animals, the Dolphin Research and Sealife Nature Center is a good family excursion, as well as the Sea Turtle Inc. rehabilitation center and the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center.
