Home to some of the best beaches in America, the Texas Gulf Coast region draws millions of visitors. Stretching some 350 miles from South Padre Island and the Rio Grande Valley to Beaumont and the Louisiana border, the area is famous for its wildlife and natural beauty.
The Texas Gulf Coast has some 3,300 miles of shoreline, if you include the islands, bays, and river mouths. There is so much to offer everybody.
It has everything one could want in a vacation - from pleasant hotels and beach houses to camping sites with stunning views. Restaurants are some of the best to be found and they use the freshest of ingredients. The seafood comes straight from the Gulf. Activities abound, from all types of water sports to horseback riding and birding. Or you could just relax and do nothing.
Visit museums or shop in all the novelty and gift shops. The best thing of all is that it is only a short four- to five-hour drive from the center of the Texas Metroplex. This makes it a great place for either a long weekend or a vacation of a week or more.
