    Go to Port Aransas. Make sure you get a 6$ sticker to put on your windshield so you can park your car anywhere, aanytime on the beach. Look for the little trailer at the entrance of the beach to buy them. I stayed at the plantation Inn. Great deal. Good luck.

    I enjoyed Padre Island National Seashore. It is a government owned beach, but it has alot of activities. nps.gov/pais/pphtml/activiti... Remember to Tread Lightly :) Mark
