Corpus Christi

Military Museums · Aquariums · National Parks
Texas Riviera
A gulf coast town with a semi-tropical climate, Corpus Christi serves as a getaway destination with a life of its own. The town is home to a major university and boasts a busy downtown. Hidden near the downtown buildings are historical neighborhoods with colorful wooden clapboard homes from the early 20th century. The city also has a heart for the beach and wildlife. Things to do include trips to the aquarium, botanical garden, and preserved national seashore. The city of about 300,000 has cattle, cotton, and petroleum at it roots, but the area now thrives as a deep-sea port and the largest coastal city in the state. In fact, it is the sixth busiest port in the U.S. Take a look at our United States trip itinerary builder tool to refine the details of your trip to Corpus Christi.
