South Padre Island is busy during the winter snowbird season as seniors travel to enjoy the warmth and sunshine. Having Mexico as a next door neighbor also provides an interesting diversion. This is also a well attended summer location for summer breaks for those that are looking for ocean beaches.
South Padre Island has many beaches and the hospitality of the local population is noted for their friendly atmosphere. There are also some very large Texas size steaks and shrimps from the Gulf of Mexico. Both were sampled several times. South Padre accommodation was at that time a place to rest several days, prior to completing our baseball visits to the original 26 major league baseball teams, at the Houston Astros ballpark.
