  • Wedding Central

    "We used to live in Corpus Christi and came back for our daughter's wedding. We wanted to be in town. Couldn't believe we were so blessed to find the Dolphin House! Part of the family stayed here...but it was also the meeting place for pre-activities. It was so wonderfully cozy and homey. So nice to come back to at the end of the day, relax and get a great night's sleep! Beautifully decorated...the bride and her girls got dressed here. So hoping we can make a return trip to CC and stay at the Dolphin House!"

  • Luxury Retreat

    "Our family, including my 5 year old grandson stayed a week at this wonderful vacation house. The house is luxurious - top of the line appliances and finishes. (The pictures don't do it justice) The lower level has a murphy bed, but we used it as a "media room". I enjoyed "coming home" to this house after the short walk to the beach or when we went fishing. It is 15 minutes from Port Aransas and 15 minutes to the causeway. (Try Snoopy's restaurant by the causeway) Very quiet and the views are great. I enjoyed sitting on the porches in the early evening watching the sun set. We all enjoyed the hot tub which was very clean and refreshing. You can see the ocean from the dining room or from the porch right outside the kitchen. There is a lot of sea weed, but we spent a few minutes raking a path to the surf and then it was fine. The beach is not crowded and my grandson spent hours building sand castles. The house and property is well-maintained and very clean. The owner ( Mr. P.) was very helpful and quickly answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who needs a luxury retreat on the beach."

  • Family boating getaway

    "The condo was great for docking the boat right next to it. The views were amazing day and night. We had a great stay! It's a short boat trip to Doc's, Snoopy's, and Scoopy's."

  • Wonderful Rental Property

    "Two Senior Canadian couples spent the months of Feb and March 2014 enjoying Debbie's North Padre Island Canal front home. The home was comfortable, clean, well maintained, in a nice quiet neighbourhood. Relaxing on the large deck area which overlooks the wide canal and the close proximity of the pet friendly beach (five minute drive) were just two of the great assets of this property. The house was equipped to meet all our cooking, dining and recreation requirements and Debbie was extremely responsive in addressing any of our questions and satisfying our needs. It was a great stay and we would have no hesitation in highly recommending this vacation property to potential renters"

Corpus Christi Travel Tips

The coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas, offers visitors proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. This getaway offers visitors a mix of modern and historic attractions that highlight its journey from the past through the present.

Corpus Christi Attractions

The Texas State Aquarium has several exhibits, programs and camps for visitors who want to learn more about and explore marine life. Some of the aquarium's exhibits include Dolphin Bay, Eagle Pass, Floating Phantoms, Islands of Steel, Living Shores, Otter Creek, Shark Touch, Stingray Lagoon and Swamp Tales. Also at the attraction is the HEB Splash Park and Owen's Paleo Park. The splash park is a zero-depth wetscape water play area found in the aquarium's Coastal Bend. Vacationers can play in marine-themed park features such as water spray jets, interactive water toys, water cannons and much more. Owen's Paleo Park is a fossil dig site where guests can discover fossilized remains of animals including the giant ground sloth and saber-toothed cat. Programs at the aquarium include Reptile Research, Fish Quest, Discovering Dolphins, Daily Diets, Explore Your Shore! and Behind-the-Scenes.

The USS Lexington is a ship and museum that allows visitors to get an up-close experience aboard a vessel used during World War II. The aircraft carrier was the last remaining ship still in service from the period. It was moved to Corpus Christi in 1992 and opened to the public in October of that year. Attractions on the ship include the Joe Jessel 3-D MEGA Theater, virtual battle stations, a flight simulator and a cafe. The virtual battle station is perfect for visitors of all ages and allows you to get a view of what it was like for deployed soldiers during World War II. Guests can be a pilot in Dog Fight, fire at enemy aircraft in Combat and land a plane in Carrier Landing.

For serenity, head to Padre Island, the longest stretch of undeveloped barrier island terrain in the world. The Padre Island National Seashore separates Laguna Madre from the Gulf of Mexico and features 70 miles of protected coastline, dunes, prairies and wind tidal flats. At the seashore you may catch a glimpse of the Kemp's ridley sea turtle or one of 380 bird species who live there. There's a history of Spanish shipwrecks dating as far back as 1554 at the site that guests can learn about, and the national seashore also has military history when the northern section of the island served as a Navy bombing range from World War II to 1960.

Thanks to Corpus Christi's warm climate, any season is a great time to visit. Those in search of a great recreation area on the water should head to Mustang Island State Park where you can indulge in swimming, hiking and mountain biking on 5 miles of open beach. When you visit the park be sure to try surfing and kayaking. Those who visit during the spring and fall should check out the park for bird watching during these respective migration periods. Also near Mustang Island State Park is Lake Corpus Christi State Park and Copano Bay Fishing Pier.
