This is a small resort town with about 5,000 residents but more than one million visitors a year. Camping is a fun experience there. Imagine waking up the sound of waves…ah! You don’t need an RV; a sleeping bag and a tent will do just fine. If you’ve ever wanted to try parasailing, South Padre Island is a good choice. There are several dolphin watches you can sign up for. Oh, and there are fireworks every Friday and Saturday.
