The beaches here are beautiful! Mustang Island State Park offers beachside camping and has paddling trails, along the shore. Be sure to watch out for the sea turtles here! Padre Island National Seashore is the largest undeveloped seashore in the world! Come see 130,000 acres of wildlife and dunes. It also has a mile long seawall that allows bikes and families to safely stroll the shoreline. Along the north end of the island is Padre Balli Park and Bob Hall Pier, an area where fishermen can reach fish further out in the ocean without the need of a boat. McGee and Whitecap beaches are also in the area and offer a pristine experience.
North Beach is home to the USS Lexington! Commissioned in 1943 as the USS Cabot, it was the longest working carrier, decommissioned in 1991. Today, visitors can see this national treasure through 5 self guided tours. With three flight hangar bays, there are plenty of aircrafts to gawk at, as you duck your head through the low doorways.
North beach is also home to the Texas State Aquarium! With over 380 species, this aquarium is also a rescue group that protects the Gulf of Mexico wildlife. Recently, they opened the Caribbean Journey, a new exhibit space that houses a shark tank, a mayan reptile enclosure, and a bird house.
The food is delicious! Come check out seafood places like Snoopy's Pier, Water Street Seafood Company, and Doc's Seafood and Steak Restaurant. Fresh seafood is all about location, and with the coast's close proximity brings the best seafood you can imagine.
