Yes, it's that time of year again when we gather as a family and decide our destination for the annual Summer Road Trip.  The kids give a few suggestions…Outer Space,  Mythical Lands, etc.  This is when  I politely thank them for their suggestions and excuse them from this gathering to begin the task of planning our summer trip MYSELF. Sound Familiar?

Recently while planning, I was invited to a Bloggers Retreat at the Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Beach Resort to learn about their new indoor/outdoor waterpark, and their story of sustainability. Let me say "WOW"! I know where we are headed as a family this summer.
 
With the Hubby out of town and the kids busy the weekend of the Blogger Retreat, what was I to do? Grab my best friend and head to the beach of course!!
 
Night View of the Lazy River!
We had such a wonderful time and agree these are the reasons why we know you will fall in love with the Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Beach Resort
 
Family Friendly Savings
The Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Beach Resort makes a great Fun and Frugal Destination for families.  Book the Stay & Play package and you will receive discounted  admission to the Waterpark for only $25 per person per day. That is a discount of over 40% off waterpark admission!

We know food can be costly at theme parks and Schlitterbahn takes this into consideration allowing you to bring your own cooler of food and drink.

Outdoor Waterpark Castle!

Two Words… Beachfront Access! 
The Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Beach Resort is located directly on the beautiful beach. Simply walk down the short access bridge from the resort and you are on the beach ready to have fun!
 
Beach Front Access!
Beautiful Rooms!
We fell in love with the Beachfront View from our spacious room featuring individually unique furnishings made from Loblolly pines.  These Loblolly pines were from the 2011 wildfire that raged through Bastrop County, Texas . For safety, the burned pines had to be removed and would have been turned into mulch but Schlitterbahn offered to take these felled trees and transformed them into something wonderful. This is such a great story of sustainable building! Other amenities in our room included a mini-fridge, microwave and safe and Free Wi-Fi.

Gorgeous View!

Heated Pool with Swim-Up Snack/Drink Bar
Relax in the beautiful pool and swim up to the bar to satisfy your thirst. There is something on tap for kids and adults
 
Ahh...Relaxing!
Safety! 
The waterpark provides Free life jackets for it’s guests and is in the top of its class for safety with certified life guards stationed every 34-50 ft.  Tubes for all guests are provided Free of charge and parents may request double seated tubes with safety bottoms  for cruising the lazy river with their children next to them. 
 

Safety First!
Comfort
Shaded areas are a big feature throughout the Outdoor Waterpark . You will enjoy covered seating areas throughout the park as well as private cabanas available for rent at a value of $100 per day.  Entrance to the waterslides are located along the lazy river allowing you to stay in the water floating under a shaded area should there be a wait.
  
 
Make plans to visit the Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Beach Resort with your family this summer and you won't be disappointed!!
