The Bay Side of Corpus Christi has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for restaurants, beaches, or family friendly activities. During your stay, make sure to check out the following list of fun attractions.

Relaxing on North Beach

Due to its proximity to Downtown, North Beach is one of the most popular beach destinations in Corpus Christi. Spend some time here relaxing on the clear sand, then take a dip in the water to cool off. North Beach’s calm waves make it a great beach for families with younger children.

Additionally, North Beach has open volleyball courts available to the public. Bring a ball and host a game with some friends, and afterwards make sure to head across the street to the many restaurants for food and drinks.

Experience Texas History & Art

Corpus Christi boasts more than beautiful beaches. The area also holds a rich culture entrenched with history and art. History buffs can board the USS Lexington and explore twenty unique aircrafts in the Naval Aviation National Museum. The USS Lexington is also equipped with a theater, interactive battle stations, Pearl Harbor Exhibit, and Escape Room.

Across the Harbor Bridge from the USS Lexington is the Art Museum of South Texas. This museum houses regional artwork with diverse exhibits and educational programs. Even the building’s architecture is a work of art worth viewing. Entry is only $8 for adults and is free the first Friday of every month.

Delicious Food & Drink

Corpus Christi’s delicious seafood, tasty tacos, and refreshing Mai Tai cocktails cater a foodie paradise. Stop by the Waterstreet Oyster Bar, located in Downtown Corpus Christi, for fresh oysters, sushi, and an array of seafood fished from the Gulf. If you’re craving some good ole Texas barbeque, head over to Julian’s BBQ for some savory ribs and brisket. Before or after dinner, grab drinks at Fajitaville off North Beach to enjoy enchanting ocean views while sipping on a frozen margarita or two.
