This is large painting on part of the convention center that wraps around the building. The details in the painting are amazing and the colors are so bright and vivid. Worth a gander if you are in the area!!

The artist is amazing and I would recommend seeing this when you are on South Padre Island. Makes for great pictures.

It's a whale with a great mural, but that's about it. The view from the bay at the convention center (where this wall exists) is pretty nice.

I enjoy going over to the convention center every time we visit Padre Island, and it's just to see that beautiful and unique paining of the Orcas.

This is located at the convention center. We were not able to hang out long outside the center due to the oppressing humidity.This is a nicely painted mural, and there is another located on the property of a large hibiscus. Cool place for a photo...More

Felt like we were back in Hawaii! Very nice mural; worth stopping by on your way to the "end of the road" or the convention center.

This was such a nice photo op and very quick as well! The wall itself is very huge so you can easily fit a huge family in one picture!

Just a painting wall. If you by any chance pass by during the sunset, I recommend you can stop and take pictures there. Otherwise, it is not a MUST place.

This is a great stop. We walked the trails and took pics here and it's free. I would definately recommend this for families visiting with small kids.
