It's everything you'd expect from the perfect beach vacation, in a place you may not expect...Texas!

When folks dream about a great beach vacation, chances are they think about the east or west coast. Sure, the flights are long, the lodging is pricey and the crowds are thick, but when you crave the sun, sand and surf, there's just no substitute.

But we Texans have a secret. Our southern border sits on the Gulf Coast, where the water is clean and clear, the sand is soft and warm and the action never stops. South Padre Island, Port Aransas, Bay Area Houston, Galveston Island, Beaumont and Port Arthur are home to some of the finest beaches in the U.S., featuring year-round swimming and surfing, boating, kayaking and water sports, hundreds of fish and bird varieties for fantastic fishing and birding opportunities -- this is the affordable beach vacation you've been dreaming of!

Shorter flights from mid-western states mean lower airfares, and Texas beach hotels and rentals are wallet-friendly too. Whether a romantic getaway for two or a fun family vacation, you just won't find a better value for your "sand dollars" than our Texas beaches.

Welcome to the Gulf coast beaches of Texas - it's everything you expect from the perfect beach vacation!
