Summer 2017 is about to be in full swing and we can’t be more thrilled! The sheer excitement of summertime fills the air and vacationers storm the island. The sandy beaches will be packed with laughing kids, beach games, sizzling sunburns, and families making memories. It doesn’t get any better than that!
Padre Island covers a large span of land along the Southern Texas coast and offers everything you would expect in a vacation destination. With three distinct cities from Port Aransas and North Padre all the way to South Padre Island, every family and personality will find the perfect fit for their dream vacation. You certainly can expect relaxation, tons of sand and sun, delicious restaurants, and numerous rental options and hotels from one end of the island to the other.
For those days you are looking for a little more activity (although laying on the beach for 7 days straight sounds perfect to me), Padre Island has you covered from water sports and aquariums to water parks. Fishing is HUGE in Padre, including offshore, inshore, or just simply fishing from the jetties. Some other watersports that islanders enjoy are kiteboarding, kayaking, paddleboarding, jet skiing, and surfing, just to name a few. On land, there are tons of fun attractions worth visiting including: Schlitterbahn Water Park, Sea Turtle Inc., SPI Dolphin Research and Sealife Center, SPI Birding and Nature Center, and Padre Island National Seashore.
One of my favorite things about the Island is the unbelievable sunrises and sunsets. Colorful streaks stretching across the sky along with the beachy scenery surrounding you is the perfect “good morning” and “good night” from Mother Nature. Every sunrise and sunset is a little bit different but no less beautiful each day on Padre Island.
This quick blog doesn’t even scratch the surface of what Padre Island has to offer. There’s a reason people keep coming back year after year!
