South Padre Island President’s Day Guide

President’s Day might very well be the best kept secret when it comes to traveling. This national holiday that always falls in mid-February means you’ve got a guaranteed three-day weekend in a winter month that doesn’t necessarily inspire travel—unless, of course, you know where to go. South Padre Island is the perfect destination for a long Presidents Day weekend trip. With warm tropical breezes to guide you on your way through this laid-back beach town, this is exactly the break you need to recharge your batteries and get through the remaining winter months.

So Many Things to Do!

All of the fun without all the crowds, this is the perfect time to embark on some exciting island adventures. Because let’s be honest: there is no better way to celebrate our forefathers than to celebrate the freedoms they fought so hard to provide us. And there is no better place to feel the winds of freedom on your face than South Padre Island…

South Padre Island was made for exploring on a Presidents Day getaway. We highly recommend you take to the warm water of the Gulf of Mexico atop a kayak or paddle board. The salty air and warm sunshine will rejuvenate even the weariest of travelers, sparking a joy and wanderlust that has remained dormant these hard winter days. If you’re looking for a faster pace, jet ski rentals are always a hit and easy to come by. Or better yet, speed boat rentals and parasailing tours are also a constant enjoyment in these parts.

On the other hand, if you’re looking to take to the water without shouldering the responsibility, there’s plenty of options there too. Book a cruise of any variety – whether you want to snorkel, enjoy a dinner cruise, watch for dolphins at sunset, or actually try your luck with deep-sea fishing. There is even a pirate ship where Captain Black-Hearted Andy invites you to join him and his jolly crew of wastrels and brigands on an interactive pirate adventure cruise. Celebrate our presidential leaders by becoming the very thing they detested; learn to speak pirate, hunt for treasure, and fight with the best of them on a special pirate ship where dolphins almost always flank the sea vessel.
