Highlight: Surfside Beach
Surfside Beach is a delight for sunbathers and beach-goers in the region, providing a family-friendly environment with close proximity to services and amenities for everyone. For first-time off-roaders looking to take their initial excursion off the pavement, Surfside Beach provides perhaps the most tame and predictable experience of any beach along the Texas coast due to the regular maintenance and heavy traffic during warmer months. Those who enjoy the sounds of waves lapping the shoreline intermingled with children’s laughter, and the smell of the occasional bar-b-que being prepared on a grill combined with a relaxing drive along a shoreline, should be sure to take a drive down Surfside Beach.
