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.
