Corpus Christi Good Times!!
Hey, if you are looking for an AWESOME weekend getaway that is perfect for just about everyone. You've got a family, you want to go somewhere w/ friends or even a getaway w/ your honey, Corpus Christi has Good Times for all! Ted, Huey and I have had lots of 'Good Times' when we've hit the road to Corpus Christi. It's easy to hop in the car on a late Friday afternoon/evening and head to the beach. The area is very family friendly and pet friendly.We stay at the Omni Bayfront Hotel, and since they allow smaller dogs, our Shih Tzu Huey comes too. There is a dog free, but way cheaper and easier than having to worry about having someone watch him/board him in ATX!
There are so many things to do. If you hit up this website- www.visitcorpuschristitx.org you will find all the Good Times that are waiting for you. Of course the more you explore, and chat w/ the locals, you will find even more Good Times. I highly suggest the Texas Aquarium. They have awesome, safe and friendly for animal shows, plus new exhibits each time we've been there. The USS Lexington Battleship is a must see to explore. Hurricane Alley Waterpark is one of the newest Good Time editions. Perfect waterpark to enjoy a day w/ your family/ friends while you're in CC!
Things to do
I suggest going to the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi that is right along the shore. Besides some really cool, unusual pieces of art, they have a Fantabulous cafe in the museum that I highly suggest grabbing breakfast or lunch. You can even sit outside and take in the 'AMAZING' scenary of the shore. Many locals go to this cafe, so you know it Rocks! I've found most of the best places to eat, when you are out of town, is where the locals are.
The Omni Baywalk Hotel has an AWESOME breakfast buffet! You'll also find the Republic of Texas Steakhouse that is on top of the Omni Baywalk that is pricey, but yummy. Save room for dessert.. Chocolate Torte... YUM!
Here are some of the many 'Good Times' my family has had in Corpus Christi the past few years, and we look forward to more!!!
Have a Happy Summer filled w/ Good Times! Heather R.
