A South Padre Island Family Vacation - In Pictures
You know, sometimes words really just aren't all that necessary. And when you've traveled someplace as beautiful as South Padre Island, I think the pictures should be allowed to speak for themselves! So, here are my favorite photos from our recent family vacation to this gorgeous Texas beach...with a few links to our favorite places at the end.
That last photo was after the dolphin watch cruise and it was also on the morning of the day that we drove home...we were all a bit tired and vacationed-out, can't you tell? If your family will be heading down to the island soon and you're looking for recommendations for family-friendly activities and restaurants, here are our favorite places we explored on this trip:
The Painted Marlin Grille
The Original Dolphin Watch
There really is so much to see and do on South Padre Island: on a previous trip we explored Sea Turtle Inc. and the kids LOVED it. If you go at the right time, you can even watch the baby sea turtles being released into the ocean! There are also golf cart rentals, a birding and nature center, Schlitterbahn Beach Resort & Waterpark, sandcastle-building lessons, The Port Isabel Lighthouse, parasailing, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, a wildlife refuge...and so much more! Or, if your family is full of true beach-lovers and foodies like ours, you can always spend all your time on those beautiful beaches and enjoying all that delicious island food. You just can't go wrong!
See you next year, SPI!
