Originally, I made plans to visit South Padre Island for spring break years ago. Plans shifted and we traveled elsewhere, but South Padre Island always intrigued and I finally just recently made my way and visited the Gulf of Mexico island destination for episode 18 – Exploring South Padre Island, Texas. What did I find on the other side of the causeway bridge from the mainland?
Would I find spring break in the summer? Would I want to cross the border and get into Mexico, a country I love?
No, I discovered a great destination, a wonderful beach and a place filled with many activities for visitors of all ages to appreciate. I found the place where “Mañanaville meets Margaritaville.”
