We spent a few days tent camping on the beach with the kids. A small amount of trash and a lot of space to drive down the beach and pitch a tent.

If you are visiting Corpus Christi for your summer holidays, then definitely one of the best places to spend your day is the Padre Island National Seashore.

This place is just great for those looking for a perfect place to practice wind surfing and overall a great place for families with kids. Just try to play shell hunting with your kids, they will simply love it.

The admission fee is $10 for a week, which proves to be ideal for those on holidays. A great period is end of July, during which you will be able to witness the sea turtle release at dawn. This day the entrance is free!

Loved driving on this stretch of beach. Must have 4 wheel, we were there in January and I felt like we were driving on our own private beach. Just our Tahoe and the beach. very nice!
