My husband and I took a mini-vacation down to South Padre Island Beach and then to Corpus Christi Beach, I live about an hour away from Galveston Beach. First off S.P.I. is fabulous and Galveston doesn't even come close to the beautiful water that South Padre has. I can't believe they are on the same coast line. The weather was perfect, the water was fabulous. The beach line was extremely packed, miles of cars lined along the coast. Our only mistake was going on the 4th of July. We went to see the fireworks, which was pretty cool, but OH MY GOODNESS, we sat in 2 1/2 hours of traffic barely moving leaving the island. However, it was worth the trip and time. We will go back, just not during any holiday.
