  • South Padre Island Golf Club
    Situated on the shores of Laguna Madre, South Padre Island Golf Club spans 6,931 yards of coastal, palm-tree-lined terrain. Though the seaside locale affords aces a veritable bunkerful of picturesque vistas, ocean winds and hole-hugging water hazards demand precise drives, pinpoint approaches, and earplugs to guard against caddying sirens. The course’s challenging nature is tempered by five different tee options, making the links surmountable for developing divoteers but still engaging for workaday wedge wizards. Steer your included, obedient golf cart right along the coast on holes three through eight and gawk at the South Padre Island skyline, or reenact the most memorable events from the Texas Senior Open, which was previously hosted by the course. The club also houses a practice driving range, putting green, and a short-game area for testing windmill-thwarting mini-golf approaches.

  • Brownsville Museum of Fine Art
    The seeds for the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art were planted in 1935, when the Brownsville Art League began to meet and discuss fine art. In the 1960s, a member took the league to the next level by designing a small art studio where they could house and display their collections. In 2002, it grew again, this time into an official museum featuring a lineup of permanent and rotating fine art. Despite the expansions over time, the core mission has stayed the same: to share art with the community and enrich the cultural landscape of Brownsville. Here are some more facts about this community institution. Size: 17,000 square feet of bright space that holds over 350 pieces of fine art Eye Catcher: works by luminaries, such as Marc Chagall, N.C. Wyeth, and Alexander Calder Permanent Mainstay: Pedro Meyer's Heresies, a collection of photographs and digital images, which are combined to create striking pieces that challenge the viewer's beliefs about what's real and not real Events: every year, the museum hosts two juried art shows?one just for students?which showcase work by artists from all over the world Past Exhibits: La Casa Azul, Frida Kahlo's Intimate Universe, complemented by an exhibit of photographs of the artists by Nickolas Muray Special Programs: the art-making classes for adults and kids, which garnered the museum a commendation from the Texas Art Education Association for outstanding service to the community

  • Osprey Cruises
    The Osprey 1 is fittingly named; it was Osprey Cruises' first and only boat back in 1971, when the company first started. Back then, the 70-foot vessel's main routes were for carrying fishermen and spectators up to 100 miles out into the Gulf of Mexico for fishing trips and wildlife watching. And it does so today, too?it's just ceded some of its star status to the fleet's newer vessels. And they're a compelling bunch. Take the aptly named The Thriller, a high-speed offshore racer for adrenaline cruises. Or, perhaps even more enticing, The Black Dragon. It's a recreation of a 17th-century Spanish galleon helmed by a crew of costumed pirates, rather than their less-reliable parrots. On pirate cruises, these swashbucklers share pirate stories, send passengers on treasure hunts, and generally introduce them to the grog-and-swordfighting lifestyle. Many trips happen upon schools of dolphins along the way or offer evening jaunts amid captivating sunset views.
