About Surfside Beach

When you hear the phrase “vacationing in Texas”, your first thoughts are probably dude ranches, BBQs and livestock grazing in open fields. Not many people would think of surfing, building sand castles and swimming in the ocean, and that's why Surfside Beach is such a great exception to the stereotypical Texas.
While the state is known for activities like ranching and horseback riding, Surfside Beach offers nautical activities like fishing, surfing and boating. Thanks to coastline location, there's no other spot in Texas where you can launch your boat right into the Gulf of Mexico. Surfside Beach is home to hundreds of different marine life as well as herons and egrets, mottled duck, white-tailed kite, and scissor-tailed flycatcher, just to name a few species, for your birdwatching family members.
Surfside Beach's climate is perfect since nice, sunny beach days far outweigh any overcast rainy weather that it may get. During the month of July, the average high is 91 degrees with a very comfortable sea breeze, while in the winter, it can cool down to about 45 degrees, which can be pleasant for anyone who dressed appropriately.
Even though Surfside Beach is a small community, they plan a number of big events year round. If you visit in June, make sure you stop by the Fort Velasco Art Show and support local artists by buying some unique pieces of art. The Thunder on the Brazos dinner event in August helps raise funds for the restoration of the historic Fort Velasco, which the residents of Surfside are currently focusing on turning into a museum and visitor center. If dressing up is your idea of fun, schedule your trip to  Surfside Beach for October the Sharkies Halloween Party and Scavenger Hunt on the 31st!

One of the most popular and longest running events at Surfside Beach is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March. This is one of the most entertaining events in Surfside Beach and is something that all family members can appreciate and enjoy. In addition to the parade, food is also available for the whole family and there will be plenty of adult drinks on hand for parents and adult members of the family. Yet another event that families may wish to take part in is the Texas Swordfish Seminar. This is a charitable event that takes place at the Surfside Marina in April. At this event, professional fishermen give presentations on various swordfishing techniques in the Gulf of Mexico.
While in Surfside, check out some of the local shops for crafts unique to the area. As noted on their website, Surfside Mosaics is owned by “two retired educators living on the beach in Texas and trying to stay out of trouble.” Scott and his wife love to take everyday items and create mosaics with them for truly one-of-a-kind items. And when they say “everyday items”, they aren't exaggerating since they claim to have mosaic-ed a bowling ball! For visitors who want to ride the waves, paddle on into Bingo Surfboards for all of your board and surfing needs.
Needless to say, being right on the Gulf of Mexico, the name of the game when it comes to dining is seafood. Surfside Beach boasts a number of restaurants and cafes that will fill you up and keep you going. For a bite of history, jumbo Angus burgers (for the non-seafood fan) and a cold beer, check out the Jetty Shack, one of the oldest establishments on the island. Pirate's Alley Cafe is a perfect beachfront spot to grab a coffee, sandwich, wrap or a dinner entree. And with a big outdoor deck, you can be steps from the sand and surf without getting either in your food!

Naturally when visiting Surfside Beach, you’ll be spending a great deal of time on the actual beach. This is one of the best locations on Texas’ coast for surfing, onshore fishing off of fishing jetties, as well as sports fishing. People with boats will appreciate the Surfside Marina. Rare birds such as the roseate spoonbill can be found at Surfside Beach. The number and type of birds, however, depends on the current season. Another top attraction is Stahlman Park Reception and Conference Center. This is a covered pavilion located near the center of the beach and is a great place for family gatherings. Across from the Park, tourists will find the Crabbing Pier. Bluewater Highway Trail is a great location for taking walks, jogging, or bicycling. Jetty Park is yet another opportunity for a family outing. There is a playground for the kid, a trail, and areas for picnics.
In a state that brags about size, Surfside Beach is a nice little getaway from the stresses of every day life. After a couple of days here, it will be hard to head back home, but Surfside Beach has you covered! While you are sitting at your desk and you hear the call of the Gulf, you can relive your memories using their Surfside Beach webcam!
