Welcome to Corpus Christi, Texas, the seaside southern Texas town that plays host to miles of beaches, ample attractions, and an amazing local food and drink scene. Located in the South Texas Gulf Coast, Corpus Christi offers popular tourist attractions, a variety of different lodging options, cultural icons, and shopping and dining hot spots. That's what we like to call South Texas hospitality.
Corpus Christi is the 5th largest port city in the United States, the port itself bringing in a massive hub of business. You will learn about the port's influence on the city's present and past, learn about the heavy Navy influence in the city, and about the very history of the city's name. Learn about Spanish explorer Alonso Pineda who discovered this bay in 1519 and named it the Latin equivalent of 'the Body of Christ,' as well as of the current abundant and gorgeous local flora and fauna.
A trip down south will allow your group to see the very best of Corpus Christi and it's surrounding cities, such as the occasionally featured South Padre Island, right along the Mexico border.
