|Texas Corpus Christi | Ocean Drive - Bayfront, WaterGarden, Marina(T-Heads) & Harbor Ferry|

Exists in a comfortable bay area, Corpus Christi has wide access to the open water yet protected against sea tantrums by the thin Mustang and Padre Islands that stretch from north-east to south-west. The beautiful nature of this city attracts a huge number of inland Texans when they are searching for a beach gateaway!
Enjoying a subtropical climate, Corpus Christi is a popular tourist destination especially from spring until fall. Various activities are lined up and await for visitors. Be it historical attractions, arts/cultural spots, aquarium, shopping malls or water recreational activities, Corpus Christi has it all under one city!
We were there last spring for a weekend retreat. It was a such a wonderful feeling to look upon the sea and horizon again, as if I had just gained my freedom! Refreshing and rejuvenating. How I wish I could just sit a day long at the bayfront, doing nothing but just contemplating the wonders of nature.
If you happen to visit Corpus Christi Downtown, do not miss the famous bayfront area or better known as Ocean Drive. This stretch of coastal road is scenic. Less than 10 miles, it lies from Bayfront Science Park on the far north-west through Cole Park on the south-east and ends near A & M University.
There are several worth stops for instance Bayfront Science Park - one stop location to catch up with the Art Museum of South Texas, the Museum of Science & History, Watergarden fountain and the spectacular sight of Harbor Bridge. This is also where one could catch a glimpse at the floating naval museum - USS Lexington. A stone throw away is Corpus Christi Marina or fondly known as T-heads by the locals. It is a neat waterfront with tonnes of private yachts, sailboats and seafood restaurants. Here is also the spot to board the Harbor Ferry if you wish to steal the view of the city from sea perspective. Moving along the road, Art Center of Corpus Christi showcases the work of amateurs and professional artists, hand-made jeweleries and special exhibits. Next ahead is a long beach front and public access area to the sea.
If you continue driving, it will take you further passing by small parks, beautiful mansions and the end is Naval Air Station. Alternatively, take Ennis Joslin Road and enter into SH 358 then JFK Causeway. This leads to Mustang and Padre Islands.
Start from the Watergarden Fountain or Bayfront Science Park
