Mini Honeymoon- S Padre Island, TX/other recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Matt and I wanted to do a mini honeymoon in Oct/Nov since we didn't do anything after the wedding. Airfare has pretty much killed any of the ideas we have come up with (5 night cruise turns into $2200, AI resort airfare is about $500 each).

 

Has anyone ever been to S Padre Island? Any tips/pointers/recommendations? (I know it just got hit by Dolly, but I'm expecting it to be back to usual by the time we go)

 

For some reason I've always been interested in going there. I've seen/heard on tv that it is a big spring break place. However, I don't want to go during that time.

 

We are trying to keep it around $1200 total (hotel & air) for the both of us.

I've been to SPI a couple times and really liked it...very laid back (as long as its not spring break season). I think it just got pounded by the hurricane though...not sure if there was damage....

Very cool, what hotel did you stay at?

Once we find a hotel I'm going to call and ask about the hurricane damage, if any.

Hi there!

I'm from Texas and sadly I have not been to SPI since I was a kid, but all I hear are great things about the island!

 

Have you checked the airfare to see if it's economical?

Spring break season is over so you wouldn't have to worry about crazy teenagers running around and Texas, in general, is sooo affordable esp for vacation!

 

I think it's a great choice! Plz let me know if you have any further questions!

Thanks everyone! Prices for hotel and airfare range from $1000-1300 for the both of us. I guess I need to determine what hotel.

Does anyone have any recommendations on activities while we are there?

Hi Kelly! I've been in south padre island many times, it's 1.5 hours aways from where I live. I agree you have to make sure you don't go on spring break season, and also make sure the weather is hot when you go. And make your reservations on time 'cause it's always full

I'm from south texas but I have never been to SPI. We always went to port aransas, but I would not suggest that for a trip where you need to fly. it's not that different from any other beach town.

 

i think it's only spring breaky when mtv shows up.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
