How to Enjoy a Thanksgiving 2020 Getaway to South Padre Island

The world looks quite a bit different than it did during last year’s Thanksgiving. The sudden onset of COVID-19 effectively shut down the country for several months, and we aren’t quite back to normal yet. You deserve to have a getaway and safely celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. South Padre Island is the perfect location to enjoy your big feast while relaxing next to the ocean. Take a look at how you can plan for a Thanksgiving celebration this year on South Padre Island:

Safety has gained an extra importance this year. We have always prided ourselves in our selection of vacation rentals and how they are taken care of between stays. However, we still want to increase our efforts and make sure every one of our guests feel completely comfortable in our rentals.

Prepare Your Thanksgiving Feast On Your Getaway to South Padre Island

There are a variety of reasons why individuals look forward to Thanksgiving every year. It can be seeing family they have missed, or it can be taking some time off work. One common consensus is the Thanksgiving feast. We remember when we were young and could smell the delicious flavors of the turkey baking in the oven. Show your family a traditional Thanksgiving meal here on South Padre Island. As mentioned, our vacation rentals are cleaned to ensure your safety. They also feature spacious kitchens that will remind you of back home. Full-sized appliances allow you to keep refrigerated items cold, heat up things quickly in the microwave, or bake a large turkey in the oven.

Of course, you will need somewhere spacious enough for the whole family to enjoy your meal too. Dining areas are big enough to seat several members of the family comfortably.

Local Restaurants for Thanksgiving on the Go

South Padre Island is the perfect combination of classic Texas BBQ and south of the border cuisine. Look around the island and you will find all kinds of delicious BBQ joints and Mexican food restaurants to eat from. While these types of restaurants may not be your standard Thanksgiving fare, it will make for a memorable experience for those who do not want to spend the holiday cooking. South Padre Island continues to implement changes from this year including having restaurants offer curbside and to-go services. The best Mexican food in the city is at Taco Palenque South Padre Island, where you can get fajitas, enchiladas, and so much more to go. You can even have a Thanksgiving brunch by getting curbside service from Ted’s, the island’s local brunch spot.

Waterside Fun

Thanksgiving will look a little different this year with most large gatherings cancelled for the foreseeable future. However, this does not mean you will find yourself bored when staying on South Padre Island! Being on a barrier island, you will have the Gulf all around you. Sure, the water temperature might be a little chilly this time of year, but that doesn’t stop the locals from splashing around. The average high temperature on South Padre Island for the month of November hovers around 79 degrees still, making it shorts weather. And the nights never get cold, with the average low temperature being around 65 degrees. We love our consistent weather here on South Padre Island and so will you. There is nothing better than exploring the water from on top of a motorboat or jet ski. You can easily rent out jet skis and boats by visiting Jet Skis and Waverunner Rentals on South Padre Island or Go Fish Boat Rental over the bridge in Port Isabel. Boating around is a great activity to remain socially distant from others while jetting around on the Gulf of Mexico. The weather will be perfect for a daily walk along the beach too!
