First I want to know if it will be warm enough for us to swim? We miss the beaches, so for sure want to do that. Where is the best beach? Where is the best area to go for site seeing and to do cool things? Bascially open for anything fun and not tooo expensive. We are parents of 3 girls and just want to get away and have alone time and relax from our crazy busy lives. Thanks. also maybe name some good hotels that are nice but cheap.
where can you get the best deal for surfing lessons? and what is the price per person?
Hi. My boyfriend and I just booked at vacation to SPI for February of 2009... I was wondering how the weather is that time of year, what there is to do, what are some good restaurants (especially for valentine's day) and just tips in general! Thanks!! :)
we are planning on staying in SPI for a few days in early October - is the weather still nice enough for us to chill out in the beach & go swimming in the ocean? Also - any recommendations on local, non-chain hotels, b&bs, hostels, etc? Thanks!
Is there a place in padre island where I can park my minivan and put small tent next to it. I am planning to go there on Aug-29-2008 for three day. Thanks
I and another single mom girlfriend are traveling to South Padre this weekend. We can only splurge on one meal for us and our boys (11, 11 and 8). I'm looking for a fun restaurant on the water (bayside), and if they'd let us make reservations for Friday night, even better. If no reservation, how would you suggest we get a good view of the fireworks on the bay? If you have any fun, affordable, activity suggestions, they are welcome too.
I need to rent a van or bus for May 17th for about 8 hours for approx. 12 people. Do you do that kind of service or is there anyone you can recommend? Thank You, Jana Hildreth

WE are thinking of visiting South Padre Island the last week of Jan - Feb. My husband and I usually stay at Hilton or Marriotts, or places of historic status. What hotel can you suggest that best meets this criteria? We would like to be on/walking distance to the beach and not just a brick building. Need some atmosphere. Thanks, PHD
Where is Club Pelican West. I heard it has an amatuer Karoke contes, but the web page doesn't say where it is. Is it in a hotel?
We are coming out in July and have a group with 3 families with kids. we are renting and house and trying to find out if there are any grocrey delivery services on the island or any services that deliver to the island. Since we are all getting in in the late afternoon and evening it would make for an easier first night if no one had to stop on their way in. Can anyone let me know if they have this type of service? Much appreciated!!
My friends and I are 18 and dont know what to do on the island. What other clubs can you get into if you're 18?
hey guys, glad your here.... I was hoping I could bounce a few things off ya..... I am coming down for some EXTREMELY overdue downtime.... I'm a 33 yr old single chick traveling by myself. My friend has a bungalow I'm staying at, address hasn't been disclosed to me yet. I won't be able to come until the second week in March. APPARENTLY that's not the best time for a 30 something due to spring break. I heard i may not even be able to get over the bridge... is this true? I'd loose it if I showed up after a 25 hour drive from Michigan and couldn't get in.... How do I avoid this? Besides the obvious don't come unitl April..\LOLL Where do I want to avoid? I don't mind partying, but I am not that college crowd girl anymore. I'm planning on staying awhile maybe a few months.. are there places on the island I can get temporary cash jobs if I run low on funds? I'm NOT a homely, trashy, uneducated, boring, antisocial, drug addict, freakshow. And what about cell phone reception on the island I'm with Centennial, if that helps. Also internet.... wireless? or don't bother...? And island transportation..... one of my buddies said you can get anywhere on the island for1 cab ride, I'll have my car , but I could just imagine the parking or lack of parking. I also plan on bringing my mountain bike, is that a good idea or not? And the last question I'll plague you with is this, I plan on eating at home a lot.... what is the cost of living there like? How much more expensive are the grocery stores compared to main land? Or is this not an issue... Ahhhh.. and what about gas prices there? I'm paying between2.15 and2.29 a gallon up here in Michigan. I soooooo appreciate you help, hope I didn't try to cover too much there, I just like to do as much research as possible before going to a new place so I'm not blindsided. I'm openminded to any suggestions, questions, comments.... thanks......
My wife and kids are going to be there March 31,2007 to April 6 how is the weather then and I hope the college kids are gone by then. We are staying at the La Quinta Inn & Suites. We are driving from northern Kentucky I hope it's worth it
Where is the best place to find shells ? Is there a charter service to go shelling??
Is there a particular time of year that the Man of War comes and causes more problems on the beaches of South Padre?
I have not been to SPI since I was a child and am hoping to go for a long weekend in September. Any recommendations for a moderately priced place with a pool? It is better to stay on the bay or gulf side? thanks.
does anyone know if the sheraton resort is close enough to the whole party scene going on at the radisson?
