Things to Do

When planning a Texas vacation, there is nothing that will prepare you for the first time you cross The Queen Isabella Causeway and see the sunshine glinting off the blue Laguna Madre Bay. Whether you are actually stepping out of your condo or hotel for the first time or searching online, there are many great activities and attractions for you to explore!

Why not start by relaxing on the beach while the kids swim in the Gulf of Mexico, learn to build a better sandcastle or boogie board the waves! Enjoy lunch at one of our great restaurants and bars followed by horseback riding on the beach, mini golf, or shopping.

Learn to dive, surf, or skydive, explore Sea Turtle Inc. or walk the boardwalks over the Bay at the Birding & Nature Center. Kiteboarding & windsurfing are popular as our year round consistent winds and shallow bay training ground attract both skilled and beginner wind junkies from around the world.  

World class sport fishing is another claim to fame as the area has a big variety of game fish for near shore and deep sea fishing. This includes Wahoo, Amberjack, Bonita, Cobia, Jack Cravalle, King Mackerel, Red Snapper, Tarpon & more. To top it off, every restaurant will cook your catch!

Turn your family vacation into a reality and visit South Padre Island!
