South Padre Island is perhaps the best known Texas beach resort. South
Padre’s primary claim to fame, of course, is Spring Break. And, plenty of
people know about the bounty of summer activities on the Island. However,
not everyone realizes South Padre is truly a beach destination for all
seasons and all types of activities. In fact, SPI was recently named as one
of the nation's Top 10 destinations for water sport activities by Good
Morning America and it's Laguna Madre Nature Trail was named as one of the
state's Top 10 nature trails by Texas Parks and Wildlife.
Spring – As mentioned above, the annual ode to partying known as Spring
Break dominates the South Padre spring scene. This four-week party draws
thousands of college students from across the nation – most of whom spend
the better portion of a week on the Island.
Getting There – Driving to South Padre is simple, but long. Simply put, from
any major city in Texas, you must connect with US 77 South. Follow 77 South
to the SPI/Highway 100 exit. Take Highway 100 east until it literally runs
out some 24 miles later on SPI.
A quicker option is flying. Visitors have the option of flying into Valley
International Airport in Harlingen or Brownsville/SPI International Airport
