Spend Father’s Day on South Padre Island this Year

It’s hard to believe that Father’s Day is just a few short weeks away, and it only means summer is almost here. Surprise the dad in your life with a family vacation to South Padre Island for Father’s Day. We at Padre Getaways have some great vacation rentals that everyone in the family will enjoy, including the dad in your life. Let’s look below at how you and your family can enjoy Father’s Day together here on South Padre Island this year!

Beachin’ It

One of the good things when it comes to vacationing on South Padre Island is the weather. We can say that is one thing that we will never tire of because we do have good weather most of the time. Summer is usually a little hot for many, but when you have access to the beaches and even the pools, you will find it easier to cool off easier. Be sure to bring with you a beach bag with several things in it like sunscreen, a hat, towel, extra clothes, beach toys and more. We know that spending your time together on the beach is just what the doctor ordered.


Shopping on the island is another great way to spoil dad this year. Treat him to a few new outfits or get him something that he can bring home as a keepsake. Bring a mason jar and add some sand in it along with a little water from the Gulf of Mexico and take it home. This can be a great memory of the trip that even dad can remember. Remember that dad wants to get something that may seem like it’s out of this world, this is his day and so treat him and spoil him a little.

Game Night or Day

Another great thing that you can do on your next vacation to South Padre Island is to start a game night or day with the family. Ever since the “stay at home,” orders were placed, finding things that didn’t include electronics is what many parents strived for. They, in return, found a love for board games and card games. We know that we saw many stores locally run out of games for others to play, and we hope that you and your family can play a friendly game of Monopoly or how about UNO. We know that many families can be competitive but just have a good time together.

While there are many other fun things that your family can enjoy while you spend Father’s Day on South Padre Island, we wanted to share these. If you haven’t booked your next family vacation to stay in one of our many South Padre Island vacation rentals, now is the time. We hope to see you and the family make new memories this Father’s Day together!

Plan Your Thanksgiving Vacation to South Padre Island Today

When you think of Thanksgiving, you think of spending as much quality time with your family. South Padre Island is one of the best places to visit each Thanksgiving because if you are staying in one of our vacation rentals, there is plenty of space for the whole family. If you have a family that is larger than 10 people, then give one of our large group vacation rentals a try. When you spend a holiday at South Padre Island, it’s more relaxing and you will want to spend more time with the ones you love. Head to one of the local grocery stores such as HEB, Blue Marlin Super Market (IGA) or Walmart. Walmart does offer delivery just in case you forget something at the store, or you can pick it up at the store. Cook your Thanksgiving dinner at the vacation rental or go out to eat as a family. Make this Thanksgiving holiday a special one for years to come.

Perfect Weather

The weather on South Padre Island is beautiful every fall. With the highs in the 70’s, who wouldn’t want to spend the holidays there? While the weather isn’t as warm as it is during summer, it sure makes for a wonderful day to spend it on the beach with the family. If you want to spend the day soaking up the rays on the beach instead of worrying about Thanksgiving dinner, go ahead. It’s your holiday vacation and you can do what you want to. Spend the evening collecting seashells with the family and kids and make it a vacation that you will remember for years to come.

Breathtaking Views

Even during the off-season, South Padre Island is nothing but beautiful to visit. Spending Thanksgiving watching the waves roll in and out or watching the sunset with your loved ones. You may even happen to see some dolphins in the ocean as they folic along or you may see people taking pictures on the beach to use as their Christmas cards. Take a nice long walk while watching the sunset or have your family’s pictures taken by a local photographer on the beach. Two local photographers we recommend are Freddy-Rodriguez Photography & To The Sea Photography. There is a ton of things you can enjoy while you vacation with us.

Black Friday

After Thanksgiving, while the Christmas music begins to play, go shop for some of those Black Friday deals. We know that most people like to make sure they get the best deals while shopping for those Christmas lists. While you can find some pretty amazing deals at the outlets an hour away, you can also find some great deals at some of the local shops too. Purchasing something from one of the local stores or artists can make some of the best gifts to give. South Padre Island is known for having some of the best gifts to give to others during the holidays or to take home as a souvenir. Don’t miss out on any of the deals this year!
