Come visit Padre Island any time of year to enjoy a great blend of culture, nature, entertainment and miles of beaches. The mild semi-tropical climate and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico offer outdoor enthusiasts the ideal location to enjoy activities such as fishing, birding, sailing, golf, windsurfing, kite-boarding and so much more!
Just over the bridge you’ll find Corpus Christi, which offers great shopping, eating and attractions such as the Texas State Aquarium, USS Lexington, Art Museum of South Texas and competitive sports teams like the Corpus Christi Hooks, Icerays Hockey and Division I Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
