What would be best way to travel from San Antonio to South Padre Island.
Is using a personal car the only way to do it?
you can fly as I stated in another post. besides Harlingen, you can fly into Brownsville (southwest doesn't fly into Brownsville), but you still have to get from there to the island. Of course,you can fly into Harlingen or Brownsville and then rent a car. Texas is decades behind on public transportation so that is not an option. Supposedly there is a shuttle from Brownsville to the island, but you will be a hostage to their schedule.
