South Texas welcomes summer vacationers, Snowbirds

Posted on: July 24th, 2012 by Texas Campgrounds 2 Comments

Texas summers heat up quickly and usually don’t let up until October when a nice cold front comes through. So many Texans and visitors from out of state flock to the beaches of South Padre Island to cool off in the Gulf of Mexico waves and relax in the sand.

With plenty of fishing, wave surfing, boating, historical sights, restaurants and shopping, tourists will not have to go very far from the RV park for an enjoyable vacation. And member park South Padre KOA is right on the island, with full hook-up sites, cabin rentals and even a heated pool.

If you’d rather stay on the mainland and take a day trip out to the beach, there are many parks in nearby Brownsville, like Paul’s RV Park, Breeze Lake RV Campground and Rio RV Park. These campgrounds attract many Winter Texans or “Snowbirds” but get visitors year-round who prefer a more tropical, friendly climate not far from the beach.

These parks host daily activities, concerts, live entertainment, potlucks and more. And the area is rich with historic sites and cultural festivals throughout the year. There is plenty to do for nature lovers in Brownsville too, including birding, hiking, golfing, fishing and tours.
