The Ultimate Labor Day Experience on South Padre Island

 

The ultimate day on this Labor Day weekend on South Padre Island would involve getting a flag raft and heading on down to the beach.

There are different activities which you can partake of which require different energy levels. You can have a heart-racing, thrilling adventure.

Kids, though, will be awed by nature and its cycles.

After about two minutes or so they won’t care about the majesty of it or how it all works; they’ll just jump right in.

This is a great place to make family memories that will last a lifetime.

After playing in its water, you can enjoy South Padre Island’s live acts that perform at palapa-studded places on the beach.

You can either watch people playing in the waves and sand at the beach, or watch the musical acts.

You can take a dolphin-watching trip and see these majestic creatures play in their playground

You can cool off at the waterpark and enjoy the last few times that the waterpark will be open this year.

I swear one evening when I heard, “Schlitterbahn Waterpark will be closing in 15 minutes,” over the intercom, I heard the collective breaking of over a thousand little kids’ hearts all at the same time.

You could take a fishing trip and bring in your supper.

There are many musical acts on the bay side of the island that will keep you entertained.

The party boats are the best place to dance, in my opinion.

You could then watch one of our spectacular sunsets.
