1) South Padre Island
Visiting this island, just 25 miles north of Mexico, is like taking a trip across the southern border without leaving the U.S. South Padre island in the Gulf Coast is 34-miles long, but only a half a mile wide. With miles of pristine and protected coastline, it’s no surprise it’s a top-rated beach in Texas. Even in the winter, the coldest temperatures experienced are in the 60s and 70s. This makes South Padre Island a desirable destination at any time of the year. The rows of large resorts lining the beaches attract families due to the ease of accessing fun, sun, sand, and other family-friendly activities. South Padre island is not just for lounging on the beach, though plenty of time should be made for sunning and swimming. It’s also a prime spot for nature-lovers with lots of wildlife, nature tourism attractions, and great birding and fishing opportunities.
