Padre Island National Seashore will Conduct a Sobriety Checkpoint on Saturday, July 19, 2014.
To protect the public from impaired drivers and help ensure a safe park experience for all visitors, Padre Island National Seashore law enforcement will conduct a Sobriety Checkpoint on Saturday, July 19, 2014 on Park Road 22 near the park’s entrance.
There is no regularly scheduled public transportation to or from the park. Given the distance from Corpus Christi (approximately 23 miles) and from the nearest airport (approximately 40 miles), cab fares will be expensive. Several car rental agencies serve the Corpus Christi area and are likely to be the least expensive alternative. For more information on your options, please call the Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1.800.766.2322.
