Memories of sliding headfirst down a thin strip of yellow plastic in your front yard always brings on a wave of nostalgia. But with age comes sophisticated taste. Cross your ankles and arms, lie back, and relax for this Escape to Schlitterbahn Beach Resort South Padre Island.

Slide into the brand new 221-room resort, perched along the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico, for a two-night stay for up to four guests in a Standard Room, which includes admission to the indoor water park ($299).

Or, upgrade to a Premier Room with partial ocean views ($349), or a Beach Front Room with a full panorama of the Gulf ($399). Both upgrades also sleep four guests and include passes to the indoor water park for all three days of your stay (including checkout day).

This upscale resort utilizes knotty loblolly pines trucked in from last year's fires in Bastrop to construct a tree house theme packed with German-turned-Texas style. All rooms can accommodate at least four guests and include flat-screen TVs, custom-made furniture (like bunk beds for kids), a full bathroom, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Get the best of both worlds at this beachside water park: Soak up the salty sea breeze during sunset, then walk back up the beach to one of several dining options. You'll also get two souvenir cups with unlimited fountain drink refills during your stay.

The resort offers fine-dining fare—eggs Benedict in the morning and lobster tail in the evening—at the beachfront Seaside Grill, plus tapas and homemade sangria at Sea4Ever rooftop grill, which features miles of beach and gulf views. Refuel on steak, pizza, or seafood (bacon-wrapped shrimp and oysters, anyone?) at the Shrimp Haus. Both the Sea4Ever and Shrimp Haus also offer live entertainment.

Just because the sun has called it a day doesn't mean that you have to or that your kids will even think about it. The 80,000-square-foot indoor waterpark and its double 70-foot tube slides, twin tidal rivers, kids play area, saltwater pool, swim-up bar, and beaches are open to all overnight guests.

Seaside views, a heated year-round indoor waterpark, and Schlitterbahn's world-class reputation? This Escape is a shore bet in making more than just a splash with family.

  • "One of the top waterparks in the country, South Padre Island's Schlitterbahn Beach Resort is located right on the beach and offers a wide variety of water slides, rides, pools, and other ways to 'get wet.'"
