For the traveler looking to wander a bit off the beaten path, creating a unique stay in a short-term rental, resort, or RV is definitely the way to go. Unpack your belongings and settle in, for tomorrow’s itinerary is jam-packed.
There’s no denying that a good stretch helps get the day started on the right note. Since you’re probably looking for a not-so-basic activity, a morning yoga session with Waterdog Yoga, SUP & Barre is the way to go. Don’t get it twisted; this isn’t your typical yoga class. Here in the Gulf Coast Capital, we take yoga to the water! SUP Yoga brings the popular land activity to the tops of paddle boards in the marina. Classes generally start with meditating to the ocean’s movements and move through vinyasas and more challenging poses before ending with a magical savasana.
And while moving the body first thing in the morning helps to set the right tone, nothing prepares you for the day quite like a cup of joe. Luckily for you, your yoga class in the marina is a few blocks away from a fantastic local coffee spot. Lucy’s Snackbar boasts a soothing color palette of neutrals and forest green, with unique and industrial touches spread throughout. Sip on an iced latte and chow down on an Instagram-able avocado toast to fuel up for the next stop: JP Luby Beach.
No trip to the Gulf Coast Capital is complete without sunbathing on the shore. Stop by your accommodations to pack up your beach bag and head to JP Luby Beach for sun and sand. This beach option is great for those looking to catch some waves or any other action-packed activity on the water. If you’re looking for a way to enhance your beach experience, reserve a party set up from Pretty Picnics Corpus Christi! This awesome service will prepare an Instagram-worthy beach picnic set up for you and your friends, complete with a picnic table, blankets, pillows, wine glasses, games, and more.
For a unique experience, take on the challenge of the USS Lexington Museum Escape Room. Immerse yourself in the only escape room found aboard a navy ship as you complete your mission of disarming a bomb and Beat The Blast! After you’ve completed your mission, laugh alongside friends and enjoy specialty cocktails at BUS. Located in the former Greyhound bus terminal, this local hotspot is the place to be. Take a seat in their massive patio area, play a few games of giant chess or cornhole, and sip on a craft cocktail like The Ghost of the Greyhound – a drink paying homage to the location’s former purpose – made with house basil-infused vodka, basil and grapefruit bitters.
The day is quickly coming to an end, but treating yourself to a fantastic dinner is a must. Just a few blocks over from BUS, you’ll find Dokyo Dauntaun, where you’re in for more than just a meal – it’s an experience. From the lighting to the music, the projection art, the unique and artful specialty cocktails, and the extensive menu, every detail has been meticulously and creatively designed. Choose among their sushi, Korean, vegetarian, vegan, and dinner menus, and prepare to be amazed. After dinner, dance to live music at one of Concrete Street Amphitheater’s many shows and concerts! Head over for live music at Corpus Christi’s biggest outdoor music venue with two outdoor stages that host a variety of musical acts to end the evening. It’s been a long day off the beaten path, but you’re bound to have enjoyed it.
