Centennial House

Built in 1849, this manse was originally the home of Senator Forbes Britton. Constructed with local brick and scored masonry, the house got received its name after the estate's 100th anniversary in 1949. At the time it was built the former senator could see the wharf from the house, but after years of devastating hurricanes in the early part of the 20th Century, the shoreline was moved farther east and the sea wall was built. Amazingly, it has survived subsequent storms over the decades and today it's open for visitors.

USS Lexington

The USS Lex was once used in military expeditions throughout the world, but today it functions as a floating museum. It is docked pleasantly on the Corpus Christi Bay, and it's quite impressive to see from any angle. To board, you are whisked away in a free shuttle that takes you right to the ship's hangar entrance. The tour allows visitors to see the flight deck, the control and navigation rooms and even the captain's quarters. There is also a mega-theater on board as well as a flight simulator and an interactive exhibit entitled 'Virtual Battle Stations'.
