Peace and Beauty in South Texas

A South Texas and Island blogger, Island Princess is beginning a new series of posts on her blog Todo Padre, highlighting the 100 Top Things to Do in the South Padre Island Area

She intends to introduce first time South Padre Island visitors as well as returning guests to the many sites and activities which are often overlooked in the race for the beach.

The first installment in the series invites the reader to the Sabal Palm Sanctuary which is located just outside Brownsville, TX.

The Sabal Palm Audubon Center and Sanctuary is one of the most hidden gems in Brownsville, Texas, a city approx. 25 miles from South Padre Island. Here, long winding paths lead down into the cool depths of age-old forests of yesteryear that take you back in time before any of this area was populated by man. This is such a pristine area that no visit to South Texas is complete without coming here. Birding and nature lovers can spend all day catching rare peeks at species they will find nowhere else in the United States but in this tropical paradise.
