The Corpus Christi Bayfront

BayfrontIf you are on Padre Island and decide to take the scenic route down Ocean Drive to downtown you eventually end up at the Bayfront. This drive is about 20 minutes and well worth the view of homes, parks and of course the "Sparkling City by the Sea".

The Corpus Christi Bayfront is the jewel that make Corpus Christi sparkle.  Cool breezes in the summer evenings make for a great walk on the bayfront, along the seawall or through the water gardens.  In the fall and winter months mild temperatures provide for near perfect weather to enjoy all the city has to offer.

Whataburger Field

Whataburger Field Home to the Corpus Christi Hooks baseball team, Whataburger Field sits right on the waters edge at the Port of Corpus Christi. Over looking the field is the Harbor Bridge. During games ships of all types pass through the port adding an experience unique to Corpus Christi. Sit back and watch America's game in the cool breeze coming off the Corpus Christi Bayfront. The Hooks are the AA affiliate of the Houston Astros. (visit)

Water Gardens

Water GardenLocated between the South Texas Institute for the Arts and the Museum of Natural Science and History the Water Gardens provide a great place to soak up the ambience and take a few pictures. A cascading water fall walkway reaches it's destination in a circular waterfall fountain surrounding a large grassy park. Make sure you walk down into the fountain (don't worry you can stay dry!)

South Texas Institute for the Arts

Art MuseumServing as the focal point for fine art in Corpus Christi, the South Texas Institute for the Arts has been a part of our history since 1945. Due to the facilities location directly on the bay the views are not limited to the art exhibits alone. The institute has both visiting exhibitions and a permanent display of art.  (visit)
