Visit Corpus Christi.

Let the wind sweep you off your feet when you land in Corpus Christi. The strong Gulf winds make it the perfect destination for air and water sports. You can enjoy both at once with kiteboarding, wind surfing, and sailing. While you’re near the water, explore one of several Miradores del Mar—bayfront gazebos copied from Mexican and Moroccan architecture—for an ethereal view of the coast. You’ll want to make sure you pack your binoculars and your camera.

After spending time on the water, head to one of Corpus Christi’s captivating historical sights. The city has deep roots in Tejano history, so you’ll find plenty of local art, architecture, and museums that reflect this rich culture. Head to historic Heritage Park for live art and cultural events throughout the year. You can also take a walking tour to learn about the twelve historical homes located on the park grounds. Each house represents a facet of the city’s ethnic diversity and is home to the Tejano Civil Rights Museum, which features a collection from different Latinx artists each month. Many are also Texas Historical Landmarks, with one structure dating back to 1851.

For a taste of local cuisine and produce, visit the Downtown Farmer’s Market at the Art Center of Corpus Christi. Interact with local artisans and farmers as you sample your way through the stands. Some local restaurants allow patrons to bring their own fresh produce for use in preparing your meal—a perfect follow-up for an afternoon of shopping local!

Explore Corpus Christi with all of your senses—start by booking a flight with Southwest®.
