Corpus Christi Beach was renamed North Beach and coupled with McGee Beach, Mustang Island Beaches, and Padre Island Beaches, they make up Texas’ premier destinations and top vacation spots.

Immerse yourself in all the wonders of South Texas. Learn the history, view the nature and wildlife, and experience how Corpus Christi is home to many beautiful sights!

After moving to Corpus Christi Beach, take your family and check out these fun attractions:

1)    U.S.S. Lexington:

Travel back in time aboard the famous U.S.S. Lexington. This retired aircraft carrier is now open to the public to explore its dark corridors during a guided tour. Take the afternoon and enjoy on-board movies at the 3D Mega Theater, test your pilot skills in the flight-simulator, and spend the day getting a humbling glimpse into what it is like to live on a Navy aircraft carrier.

2)    Whataburger Field:

Ranked as the number 2 attraction in Corpus Christi, Whataburger Field overlooks the ship channel and has amazing food! Children and teenagers can also enjoy the “play zone” while you catch a baseball game. Tickets for in-the-action seats are not pricey and offer a fun experience for the entire family. Visitors say that it is a pleasure to walk around the entire field and check out the scenery while playing some games and eating some tasty American cuisine.

3)    Horses On The Beach:

Enjoy a relaxing horse-back ride along the shoreline of Padre Island Beach and soak in all that the Corpus Christi beach has to offer.

4)    Art Museum of South Texas:

The Art Museum of South Texas is an amazing work of art…literally. The bright museum has an extremely modern architecture and clean and simple design. The building itself is a work of art, making this art museum a must-see. The art work displayed changes year-round but is always sure to be spectacular.

5)    Corpus Christi Museum of Science & History:

The museum of science and history is another great place to take children. Step onboard an authentic reproduction of Columbus’ ship Pinta and tour the oldest shipwreck that was found nearby in the Gulf of Mexico. Share the adventures of early explorers by walking amongst treasures from world-famous shipwrecks.
