Kickstart your Monday in Corpus Christi! Check out these places you should visit to start your week off on a high note.
Explore North Beach
Celebrate Monday Funday with the beach and top attractions in our city! The Texas State Aquarium and the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay are just a short drive from downtown. Located on North Beach, you can enjoy a day of sightseeing and lazing on the beach after eating lunch at Blackbeard's or Pier 99.
Coast Over to House of Rock
Coast over to this locally-loved pizza joint in Downtown Corpus Christi! Along with happy hour from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m., they have a great menu filled with pizza, wings, dessert calzones, and their famous meatballs. And don't miss out on Chili Monday -- during Monday night football, House of Rock will give you a free cup of chili during the 7:00 p.m. kickoff!
Take a Coffee Break at Lucy's Snackbar
This cozy coffee shop on Chaparral Street is full of good vibes, healthy bites, and delectable drinks! Try the avocado toast or loaded waffle with an oat latte if you're going for breakfast. For an evening trip, we recommend their prosecco on tap with their french onion dip and chips.
Cruise Along the Bay with the Japonica
Enjoy the sea breeze and waves aboard the Japonica -- a touring boat that's docked at Harrison's Landing AKA the only restaurant in Corpus Christi that floats! This boat ride offers incredible views of the downtown skyline, signature attractions, and you may even spot a dolphin or two! Book a boat ride during the day or at sunset, either way, you're bound to have a memorable experience. We recommend booking in advance through their website!
Enjoy a Stroll Down the Seawall
This waterfront wall and promenade is a sight unique to Corpus Christi. You can jog, bike or simply meander along the 1.5 miles of path while taking in some great views of the water. Sink your feet into the sand on McGee Beach overlooking Corpus Christi Bay, relax in one of the “miradores del Mar” to take in the ocean view, or take a stroll through the planets in “Journey Through Our Solar System,” an exhibit along the Downtown Seawall.
Discover Water Street Market
Water Street Market is home to several spots every visitor should see! This market is a hub for tasty bites, South Texas history, and Corpus Christi pride. Take a stroll down the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, where you'll find stars belonging to George Strait, Selena, and more. Grab a bite at Water Street Oyster Bar and/or Sushi Room, where you'll find incredible dishes with wood-grilled oysters, fresh sushi rolls, and crab-stuffed mushrooms. If you're looking for something a little more casual, coast over to Executive Surf Club, a local watering hole with tasty beer bites and pints!
And while you're in Water Street Market, don't forget to coast over to the Visitor Info Center. This is your go-to place for all-things Corpus Christi when it comes to unique gifts, CC essentials, and trip inspiration!
