Things To Do in Corpus Christi, TX
Head out toward the Island to experience the food and environment of the Padre Island Burger Company. This popular hangout serves up some amazing gourmet burgers - we recommend the Mr. Beckham - and the atmosphere here is laid-back and nothing short of island chic. Live music and great drink specials also add to the Burger Company's appeal.
An architectural gem on the city's bayfront, The Art Center of Corpus Christi is home to 11 arts organizations, and showcases works from local and area artists in rotating exhibitions. The 14,400-square-foot building houses a main gallery and four studios, including a clay studio that encourages artists to complete works-in-progress in front of visitors. The Art Center also offers art classes, to express your own creativity in photos, watercolors, oils, sculpture or other media. Workshops, outreach projects and other events to promote the arts to the public are an integral part of the Art Center of Corpus Christi as well.
Stroll through meandering pathways that connect 12 Victorian homes at the Heritage Park & Cultural Center. Visit the 100-year-old Galván House, the national award-winning center that provides a variety of cultural programs throughout the year, and is also the site of outdoor festivals, concerts and other activities you will want to see. Originally, the area was known as 'Irishtown,' until severe damage from the Hurricane of 1919 swept away most of the homes from the area. The enclave of relocated houses tells the story of many well-known families who helped build and steer the city. Take a self-guided tour and look inside the homes during operating hours of the non-profits that occupy them. Guided tours are also available during the week.
