3. South Padre Island – Texas
This is a remote place that, over the course of years, became an extremely popular vacation spot for many Americans. You can find this island less than a day’s drive away from the major cities of Texas: Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston. It is located very close to the border with Mexico.
This strip of white sand and tropical marvels has a length of 34 miles and is easily accessible by crossing the Queen Isabella Causeway. Another thing about South Padre Island is that it is recognized as a top vacation spot for spring break. But don’t be cast down by this. South Padre has a lot of activities that are suitable for people of any age.
Get ready to learn how to build sand castles because here you can find lessons for this, watch some dolphins, and if you think that these are not for you, try some mini-golf.
If you are not from Texas and you want to visit this tropical destination, you can book a flight to Brownsville-SPI International Airport (BRO). This airport is located less than 20 miles from the beach.
