Corpus Christi caters to summer visitors
Corpus Christi is a well-known vacation spot along the southern Texas Gulf Coast as it
offers endless white sandy beaches and is centrally located to many attractions, as well.
With many island beaches within Corpus Christi as well as city beaches, everyone can
find the perfect spot to enjoy the sun, swim, fish, jog, camp and hike or just enjoy nature
at its best. A popular area for families is Mustang Island State Park. Campgrounds are
available for RVs or tents and bonfires are allowed in designated areas. The park is
located south of Port Aransas and offers bathrooms, shower facilities and a small store.
One of the most famous beaches in the region is Padre Island National Seashore which
consists of miles and miles of white sandy beaches, over 125 acres of beautiful
grasslands and amazing sand dunes. Designated the longest barrier island in the
country, Padre Island National Seashore offers visitors the opportunity to learn about
the natural history as well as the culture of the area through the Malaquite Visitor’s
Center located within the beach area. Part of the educational experience through the
center includes learning about the Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle, which is the most
endangered type of turtle in the world. The Kemp turtles nest on the Padre Island
seashore with the assistance of rescue groups protecting them. Many times visitors to
the area have the rare opportunity to watch baby turtles being released into the wild.
The U.S.S. Lexington is on display and features a flight simulator and 3D movies in the
Mega Theatre where visitors can learn about this World War II naval aircraft carrier. Get
a good sense of what it was like living and working aboard this vessel during wartime.
Famous for Tex-Mex as well as seafood, Corpus Christi is home to some of the best
restaurants in the southwest part of the states. Traditional BBQ cuisine is a featured
culinary delight of which Texas is known best.
After enjoying a scrumptious dinner, downtown Corpus Christi comes alive with
nightclubs providing live music and dancing. Bars and billiards go together as
experienced at many of the bars and taverns. Comedy clubs are a fun stop to sit back,
relax and laugh.

within the Southwest region of the USA.
