Vacation Quest Review: Return Trip to South Padre

When you find a good Vacation Quest destination, it’s worth planning a second trip. Member Sue D. found such a place while staying at the Solare Condominiums in South Padre, Texas, and shares his finds with us in this week’s Member Monday.

Eat:
We ate all of our meals at the condo.

Sea Turtle Inc., sand castles and Iwo Jima War Memorial and Marine Museum.

What was your favorite…

There was plenty of room to spread out. It was very well equipped and we felt secure. Parking was easy.

We were in South Padre in February 2016 and enjoyed ourselves so much we scheduled another trip.

Spending time with my family (husband, nephew, his wife and their three-year-old) at the pool and beach.
