South Padre Island may be unofficially known as the Spring Break Capital of Texas, but this picturesque beach destination is so much more than a teenage hangout. Stretching across the southern five miles of South Padre Island, the resort town of South Padre Island boasts a postcard-perfect setting, clear tropical waters, pristine beaches and plenty of cultural attractions to keep tourists occupied for days on end. In addition to its legendary nightlife, Padre Island is also a magnet for birdwatchers and nature lovers, and the kiddos will love splashing around at Schlitterbahn or the South Padre Island Adventure Park. When the sun sets, dance the night away at one of the many beach nightclubs in the area, or for a more low-key experience, catch an outdoor movie screening at the historic Port Isabel Lighthouse.
