Spring Breakers Celebrate After a Long Hard Winter

The South Padre Island Convention & Visitors Bureau reports that the Spring Break Texas Week saw thousands of visitors descend to relax after a winter filled with polar vortices, frozen pipes, and traffic stalled in ice and snow. “Texas Week” is the week in mid-March when most Texas colleges, universities, and public schools dismiss classes for Spring Break, and it has traditionally been a time for students to put down the books and hit the beach.

According to the Convention & Visitors Bureau, Spring Break Texas Week 2014 on South Padre Island kept that tradition going, as tens of thousands came to the island to enjoy its beaches, tropical climate, fishing, surfing, and concerts. Hotels reported full occupancy, and restaurants were busy the whole week.

”Spring Break 2014 on South Padre was great, as it always is,” said César Cantor, Chairman of the South Padre Island Convention & Visitors Bureau Transition Board.  “Students arrived in droves, and had an exciting, fun, safe vacation.” He added, “Concerts and other activities were taking place all over the area, rather than being concentrated in one location, so we had as many Spring Breakers as ever – if not more.”

Island officials also noted that public safety is always of paramount concern, and the usual care was taken to ensure that vacationers were able to celebrate safely.

The South Padre Island Convention & Visitors Bureau is continuing to promote the island as a spring destination throughout April, May and June. “Spring is more than just one week in March,” noted Mr. Cantor. “Springtime lasts until summer starts on June 21, and we want to make sure that the world knows that this is one of the best times to visit South Padre Island.”
