November: South Padre Island and San Antonio


For Thanksgiving we headed down to South Padre Island — typically a wild Spring Break destination, but in the off season it was very tame. It was quite touristy with beach shops and souvenirs lining the streets. South Padre Brewing Company was a great spot we checked out. Their pizza was top notch! They also had a sea turtle rescue where they helped nurse the injured sea turtles back to health and then release them.

On our way back we stopped for a night in San Antonio- the river walk was gorgeous! It was December 1st and they had lit all the Christmas lights that day. The lights were hanging down from the trees like icicles and their was music and the boat taxis. It was a fun stop I’m glad we took!
