South Padre Island Profile


Overview

South Padre Island is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Texas. With a population of 2,884 people and just one neighborhood, South Padre Island is the 506th largest community in Texas.

South Padre Island real estate is some of the most expensive in Texas, although South Padre Island house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

South Padre Island is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 93.77% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, South Padre Island is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in South Padre Island who work in sales jobs (19.61%), management occupations (17.28%), and office and administrative support (15.95%).

Of important note, South Padre Island is also a town of artists. South Padre Island has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape South Padre Island’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.94% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that South Padre Island is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, South Padre Island’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

South Padre Island is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

Being a small town, South Padre Island does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
