When we think of the Southern islands, I jump right to the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida.
But don’t forget the Gulf Coast has some beautiful islands as well. South Padre Island off the coast of Texas is a resort island that is always filled with good food, good music, and water and sun. What more could you want?
If you’re an outdoorsman (or outdoorslady), there’s plenty of kayaking, horseback riding, and fishing. The island is host to many annual fishing tournaments, so whenever you visit, you’re likely to see a few catches being hauled in.
