Aside from the obvious reasons to visit Corpus (beaches), there are many other great attractions including [source for links, infor and pictures: www.visitcorpuschristitx.org ]:
Texas State Aquarium: Located on North Beach, this beautiful facility is home to fascinating sea creatures of all kinds.
South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center: Experience a variety of attractive garden creations such as roses, tropical flowers and 2,500 different orchids.
Art Museum of South Texas: Offering diverse exhibits featuring local and national artists and also a variety of classes, lectures and performances, the Art Museum of South Texas is a wonderful place to tour during a leisurely afternoon around downtown Corpus Christi.
Corpus Christi Museum of Science & History: Step aboard an authentic reproduction of Columbus’ ship Pinta at the Corpus Christi Museum of Science & History. Tour the oldest shipwreck that was found nearby in the Gulf of Mexico and share the adventures of early explorers as you stroll among treasures from word-famous shipwrecks.
Once you have explored all the great attractions, you must check out these awesome quilt shops located in this area!
...and a few more here!
I designed a quilt block to represent the USS Lexington and you can download that here.
(Note: I photoshopped the "16" in because I hope to either embroider or write it in the finished block)
I also snatched up another fun beach block pre-designed in EQ7 that you can also include if you like...
Download it here!
I havent had a chance to make these blocks yet, so if you find any issues, please let me know asap! Have a great weekend!
