The summer season is in full swing so make your way down to South Padre Island for an incredible getaway. Visiting in the summer lets you take advantage of our clean beaches and holiday celebrations including the Fourth of July. This patriotic holiday will bring in our country’s birthday with some exciting ways to celebrate. Take a look at why you need to make your way to enjoy South Padre Island Fourth of July celebrations:
South Padre Island Fourth of July Fireworks
One of the biggest ways to spend your Fourth of July holiday is by watching a dazzling fireworks display in the sky. You can do this when vacationing to South Padre Island in the summer with our annual 4th of July Fireworks. For 45 years local spot Louie’s Backyard has hosted the annual 4th of July fireworks show that takes place over the bay. Louie’s Backyard is one of the island’s most popular sports bars. While the bar typically features pub grub you will instead be enjoying an all-you-can-eat buffet feast that includes prime rib and seafood. While most fireworks display only takes place on the Fourth of July South Padre Island likes to keep the fun going. All summer long you can catch fireworks at Louie’s Backyard every Thursday and Friday night at 9:15 PM. So if the crowd beats you to Louie’s on July 4th fret not, as you will have plenty more opportunities for incredible fireworks. Don’t forget Louie’s Backyard also hosts karaoke every Friday and Saturday night along with other games and contests throughout the summer.
Fourth of July BBQ
Visitors of South Padre Island can also plan for their own festivities at their vacation rental for the Fourth of July holiday. Our vacation rentals come stocked with a variety of amenities to help you and the family have the best time possible. One activity that is always called for the summer season and Fourth of July holiday is having a BBQ. Most of our vacation rentals come with a spacious yard or patio with a gas grill. You can grill up the perfect hot dog or burger just in time for our nation’s birthday. The gourmet kitchens allow you to make all of the fixings with ease and store any leftovers you have. If you want to cool off from the heat take a dip in the swimming pool that can be found with select rentals; some properties have access to community pools and hot tubs too. There can also be community BBQ and patio areas so there will be plenty of room especially if you are traveling with extended family. Speaking of our vacation rentals, we guarantee you will have the best night of sleep after your festivities with our plush beds and relaxing amenities inside each vacation rental.
