The western shores of the Gulf of Mexico are dotted with fun and romantic getaways. The United States comprises approximately one-third of the western shoreline, mostly in the state of Texas. Texas coastal areas are decidedly warm and humid with swaying palms and colorful crape myrtle trees. Visitors can bivouac at a number of romantic hotels from Galveston in the north to Corpus Christi in the center and South Padre Island in the south.
