29th Annual Longest Causeway Run – Fitness Walk Results! http://portisabel.org/chamber/?p=1239
On behalf of the Port Isabel Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank you for your interest in our area. We hope the information contained in our new Visitors Guide will provide you with the help you need in planning your next trip, relocating to our area, or starting a new business venture within the community.
The Laguna Madre area encompasses the bay area of Port Isabel, South Padre Island, Laguna Heights and Laguna Vista. Port Isabel boasts a permanent population in excess of 5,000 and is separated from the shores of South Padre Island by the 2.6 mile long Queen Isabella Causeway. Its subtropical climate and heritage rich in culture and history make the city a favorite destination for millions of visitors each year. We hope you will be among them.
We are proud of our community and invite you to explore its great dining, shopping and lodging. Fishing, boating, shelling, surfing, swimming, birdwatching, windsurfing and more are among the many vacation opportunities available to you year round. We know you will appreciate all these amenities plus our close proximity to Mexico—located just 30 minutes away.
Once you arrive in Port Isabel, please stop by and visit us at the Chamber office, located next to the historic Lighthouse in the replica of the original Lighthouse keeper’s cottage on Highway 100 in Port Isabel just before the entrance to the causeway. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm. We look forward to your visit!
