Corpus Christi

Texas Riviera

A gulf coast town with a semi-tropical climate, Corpus Christi serves as a getaway destination with a life of its own.
Step out of the city life by going to Malaquite Beach and Pavilion and Port Aransas Beach. Kids will enjoy Mustang Island State Park and Padre Island National Seashore. Change things up with these side-trips from Corpus Christi: Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center (in Port Aransas) and Rockport Beach (in Rockport). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at USS Lexington Museum on the Bay, see the interesting displays at Texas Surf Museum, and stroll through North Beach.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read our Corpus Christi trip itinerary planning website.

Sacramento to Corpus Christi is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Central Standard Time (CST), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Sacramento in June since evenings lows in Corpus Christi dip to 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to drive to South Padre Island.

South Padre Island

South Padre Island ©
A vibrant resort town, South Padre Island sits on a barrier island of the same name, located just off the Texas Gulf Coast.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Isla Blanca Park and Paragraphs on Padre Boulevard. Visiting Sea Turtle, Inc. and South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center will get you outdoors. There's lots more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center.

You can drive from Corpus Christi to South Padre Island in 4 hours. Another option is to do a combination of bus and taxi. When traveling from Corpus Christi in June, plan for a bit cooler days in South Padre Island, with highs around 85°F, while nights are about the same with lows around 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 9th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
