South Padre Island

Home of the "Two Nation Vacation," South Padre Island, Texas is located on the tip of the longest barrier island in the United States. It is rated as one of the "Top Ten Beaches" in the world, making it one of the hottest destinations for Spring Break and Texas Week.

South Padre offers lots of beachside activities each year during Spring Break. The fact that it is only 30 minutes away from Mexico is why it is called the "Two Nation Vacation." But, because of the drug wars between the the cartels, the Texas Department of Public Safety, urges Spring Breakers to avoid travel to Mexico.

It is said that "everything is bigger and better in Texas" and Spring Break 2019 will be no exception. When you vacation on South Padre Island (SPI), you are surrounded with things to do!!

You will find windsurfing, sailing and a host of other water sports on Laguna Madre Bay to the west. You can relax on the white sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico to the east. You can explore the Padre Island National Seashore to the north. And last but not least, you can be in Mexico in a matter of minutes.

South Padre Island is a growing international destination that depends on seasonal tourism. SpringBreakers provide a welcome boost to the local economy. The town works together with corporate sponsors to create special SpringBreak events that add to the exsisting recreational activities. You will find that most of the Spring Break events take place behind the major hotels like the Isla Grand.

It is always a good idea to find a hotel room with a kitchen, or at least a microwave and a refrigerator. Condo rentals are also available in SPI and are a good alternitive to a hotel. Check with the tour operators, they book a lot of Condos and large blocks of hotel rooms for all the people they bring down by bus. Travel packages are available from several Spring Break tour operators. Check out the YouTube Clip.

Night clubs are another essential ingrediant for a great Spring Break and SPI has several. Tequila Frogs overlooking Laguna Bay is one of the hottest clubs during SpringBreak. Last year they hosted the Maxim Monday event along with the MTV Real World Hosts. Another wired (WiFi) SpringBreak venue overlooking Laguna Bay is Louie's Backyard. There are a total of about ten nite spots on Padre Island, and don't forget Crazy Lazy and the other Mexican nite spots South of the Border.
