2020 brought with it many changes to annual plans and vacations. For many Winter Texans and vacationers, that meant no yearly trip to the Rio Grande Valley for winter. Since then, many attractions and businesses have opened, making the RGV better than ever for those looking to escape the cold this winter season.
If you’re ready for sunshine and relaxation, book a flight with your Harlingen airport to the beautiful RGV.
Come To South Padre Island
From relaxing on the beach to pedaling the island on a cycle pub, South Padre Island is the perfect place to get away and relax this winter. Since the pandemic in 2020, a number of businesses and attractions have been added as we welcome those traveling from up north.
SPI Cycle Pub
The SPI Cycle Pub, a fifteen-seater bike, is the latest addition to South Padre Island. This family-friendly attraction allows riders to bring their own beverages, and you can even make stops at other local businesses.
Growing Art Community
In an attempt to grow the art community in South Padre, the Art Business Incubator (ABI) is promoting new artist’s work in the ABI art gallery. This gallery will allow viewers to see this year’s newest art styles and forms including woodworking, oil, acrylic pour, and collage.
