Fall in Love With Fall Things to Do in South Padre Island

Fall is one of our favorite seasons. Most of the summer crowds have vanished, yet the weather remains warm long into autumn. This makes fall the perfect time of year to plan your vacation if you are trying to keep your distance from others, but still want to experience some warmth and beachside fun on your getaway.

South Padre Island Fall Events You Will Love

Fall is a wonderful and beautiful time to visit SPI. Let this post serve as your guide to some of the fun-filled things you can do in SPI this season. 

1. Take a Dip, Even in Autumn

While South Padre Island has a lot of incredible attractions, there is one that surpasses them all — the beach. Between the Gulf and the Laguna Madre, the beach is the ultimate draw to SPI. 

From September to well into November, you can still enjoy warm, tropical weather in the mid-80s nearly every day. Whether you are exploring the undeveloped beach north of the hotels or taking part in some extreme water sports like surfing or parasailing, the fall offers visitors unlimited beach access without the crowds. 

2. Non-Stop Fishing

If you are looking for fall activities in South Padre Island, fishing is a top choice. While fishing is enjoyed year-round in SPI, the fall fishing season is some of the most productive. The autumn offers different kinds of fish that are not readily available during other seasons, such as redfish, kingfish and snook. Also, fall winds are calmer, and the temperatures are slightly cooler, so you can enjoy a relaxing and leisurely trip with your loved ones without the intense heat of summer. 

Fall is an ideal time to enjoy a fishing tournament, too. These fun-filled weekends are perfect for the whole family. There is something truly incredible about watching hundreds of boats zoom across the bay in search of their next big catch. It all ends with a highly entertaining on-stage weigh-in that determines the big winner.

3. Concerts

Some of the best artists in the nation seem to make their way to the shores of South Padre Island to entertain locals and visitors alike. However, even when there are not any big-ticket concerts, local venues like The Quarterdeck Lounge always offer incredible live music and entertainment. 

4. Farmer's Markets

Every weekend, local producers assemble their wares. You will love perusing stall after stall of delectable produce, handmade goods and delicious eats. 

5. Walks and Runs

From the Walk for Women to the South Padre Island Mariachi Run, these events are a great way to meet the local community, celebrate a great cause and have a fun time.
