Corpus Christi is one of 10 cities on TripAdvisor.com’s Best Places to Travel in March That Won’t Break the Bank.
There’s the beach, the Texas State Aquarium, two water parks, bird watching spots, music festivals, sea turtles, and a few other things that make Corpus Christi a fun destination for visitors.
In tenth place on the list, a week in Corpus Christi costs visitors about $ 1,149, according to the website.
“Aside from affordable rentals, you’ll fall head over heels in love with beautiful beaches like North Beach and Padre Island National Seashore,” the website says. “Mild temperatures in the mid-1970s make for wonderful days with the waves. If you’d rather hike or bike than sunbathe, don’t miss the Corpus Christi Bay Trail.”
Fun things to do in Corpus Christi in March:
1. Visit the Texas State Aquarium
The aquarium is located in Corpus Christi Bay and has offered residents and visitors a mix of nature, education and conservation in one attraction for more than 20 years. And who knows, you might even be lucky enough to meet the newest resident, Xena the sloth.
2. Visit the music festival in honor of the life of the Queen of Tejano
If you visit Corpus Christi and are wondering where the people are from March 24-25, everyone is likely to get their “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” in Corpus Christi Bay. Fiesta de La Flor, the music festival honoring the life and legacy of Selena Quintanilla-Perez, has attracted more than 100,000 people and created more than $ 25 million in economic impact for the city.
3. Visit the Padre Island National Seashore
The 70 miles of coastline, dunes and of course the sea turtles of Kemp Ridley make this national park a national park to add to your list.
4. Visit the water parks during the spring break
If you don’t want to feel the sand between your toes and college parties, the water parks are a family-friendly option – and Corpus Christi has two.
There’s Hurricane Alley near Corpus Christi Bay and the Schlitterbahn on North Padre Island.
