South Padre Island Spring Break

Spring Break For Students, Texas Style!

Located in Texas, and 25 miles from the Mexican Border, lies the small island of South Padre. With an annual influx of more than 250,000 students, South Padre Island is one of the premier Spring Break places to be: they have non-stop events, great weather, and a history that's pretty rich in the reckless abandon that is associated with this time of year. Grab your sunscreen and camera and get down there!

Get Your Camera Ready!

Florida is no longer the go-to destination for students on study-breaks and South Padre is happy to accommodate them - and to take their tourist dollars as well.

Getting naked during spring break isn't only normal, it's encouraged. One is virtually guaranteed to see a crazy showing of all types of "students" while they 'unwind' and blow off a little steam.

Located on the Gulf of Mexico and not too far from the Mexican border, this winter wonderland is home to 250,000 students each year and has become one of the most active and wild Spring Break destinations in the country. From relaxing on the 25 mile-stretch of sandy beach to partying to the sounds of the many bands to the clubs and bars, there's something going on both day and night for everyone.

If you plan on driving onto the island - and many do - beware the infamous speeding trap that's set up on highway 100. Flying into Brownsville and using the $2.00 shuttle is your simplest option, although it will be crowded and will obviously take a bit longer. Either way, plan to give yourself a bit of extra time to get there as moving 250,000 people into ANY area can be time consuming.

If you're going to Padre Island (or any other hot destination for spring break) and plan on taking pictures, plan on sending them to us! Everyone loves a good beach photo and it can get you free time & DVDs with us. If you're already sitting on some from years past SEND THEM IN and we'll hook you up with a Coccozella account right away.

EVENT ATTITUDE TO NUDITY:

College kids. No school. Sun, sand, surf and tons of booze. It's not a stretch to assume that it can get pretty wild down there and especially at night when the parties really kick into high-gear.

EVENT ATTITUDE TO CAMERAS:

These days, and especially with this demographic, practically everyone would have at least a cell phone with a half-decent camera in it. Expect to be documented in one form or another.
