Winter Texans

Our average winter temperature is 65°....  Same as our average winter age. 

Turns out birds aren't the only ones migrating to South Padre Island in droves every winter.  From November through February, thousands of retirees flock to South Padre Island from the north for some warm weather and an even warmer reception. We call ‘em Winter Texans and we couldn't be happier to host them. In addition to popular activities like birding and fishing we offer a wide range of events for the young at heart like the Winter Texan Music Fest, Longest Causeway Run & Fitness Walk, SPI Market Days and SPI Polar Dip & Penguin Plunge.
