Top Rated Attractions in Corpus Christi

Search Radius (Miles)
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'.

South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center

This nature center in southwest Corpus Christi houses more than 180-acres (72.84 hectares) of exotic and native plants. The site features an Orchid House, Bromeliad Sanctuary, a Rose Garden and many other designated flower areas. Another benefit to the gardens, include the fact that the center works as a conservationist for exotic and abandoned animals. The botanical gardens house reptiles, birds and fish all in their respective exhibits and habitats. Don't forget to take a walk down the Bird & Butterfly Trail which overlooks Gator Lake! Moreover, the gardens often host special events, educational classes and tours.

Heritage Park

Just steps from the museums of Bayfront Park, visitors will find a collection of homes surrounded by beautiful greenery on North Chaparral Street. Visitors who walk through this neighborhood will feel as if they have stepped into the Victorian era and visiting one of the twelve homes will only enhance that sentiment. It is recommended to take the guided tour of these homes in order to better understand the full history of these architectural gems. The Galvan House is the yellow center house from which all tours depart and there is a fee when you take a tour, however if you wish to walk around the neighborhood, that is free.

Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History

For an educational day out with the kids, visit the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History located in Bayfront Park. What really draws visitors to this museum are the replicas of the Pinta, Niña and Santa Maria; the ships that Christopher Columbus sailed upon when he arrived in the Americas. Guided tours of the ships are available every hour and are included in the price of admission. Aside from the ships, the museum has a number of exhibits that highlight the region. From paleontology and ecology to agronomy and the history of Corpus Christi, this museum is a veritable treasure trove of education in the region.

Texas Surf Museum

This unexpected little museum is located in the back of Surf Club Records and it aims to commemorate Texas surfing history. Despite it's diminutive size, the museum showcases everything about the mighty waves of the Gulf of Mexico, where visitors can see vintage surf boards, photographs and other surfing paraphernalia from the beginning of the sport to the present-day. When you're done, check out the selection of tunes in the shop and take a pic in front of the "woody" outside the front door of the museum.

Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures

The Texas State Asian Cultures Museum promotes the culture and traditions of the world's largest continent; with art from nations such as India, China Sri Lanka, Laos, Japan, the artworks represent regions from the entire land mass including parts of Austronesia. On the second floor you will find the information center which educates visitors about Asian cultures through costumes, storytelling and crafts. The museum is conveniently located downtown and it host special events throughout the year.
