Corpus Christi is also a major seaport. Filled with hotels and attractive beach-front boulevards, Corpus Christi is a haven for the visitor. The city is filled with palm trees, and is renowned for a variety of attractions - including the Texas State Aquarium and USS Lexington.
On any given day, the waters are host to an array of colorful sails - which constantly decorate Corpus Christi bay. So pack a lunch, find a sunny spot, and enjoy the view. Or, show up for the Wednesday night sailboat races - and join in the fun! Corpus Christi, Texas is the gateway to one of the world's natural wonders, the Padre Island National Seashore. Padre Island beaches stretch out along more than 130 miles of the Gulf.
Just a 30-minute drive from downtown Corpus Christi, Padre Island is one of only a few nesting grounds for the endangered Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtles. A popular year-round attraction, the park's many beaches, bays and inland waterways offer some of the world's best conditions for water sports - such as kiteboarding, windsurfing, jet skiing, kayaking, and sport fishing.
After a day of soaking up the sun and taking in the sites, it's time to enjoy a delicious meal of fresh seafood, Tex-Mex, or Texas barbecue. The downtown and marina areas are filled with restaurants.
