Many people pass by this historic town on the southern tip of Texas in their hurry to get to the better known resort of South Padre Island. We feel they do so at their own loss. Port Isabel is the older of the two communities and has much to offer in the way of historic, scenic and natural attractions. It was once home to the largest shrimp fleet in America, and is still a fishing village as well as a recreational spot.
When we recently spent a week-long vacation at South Padre Island, we found ourselves coming back over the causeway to the mainland and Port Isabel several times to sample its fine restaurants, museums, shops and nearby outdoor opportunities. We especially enjoyed exploring Port Isabel's splendid old Lighthouse Square and the waterfront.
