Shopping is one of the best parts of any vacation. Nothing beats a day at the mall! Take a break from the Texas heat at one of Corpus Christi’s best retail shopping centers and La Palmera mall, which offers a number of great places to eat, including a food court and P.F. Chang's Bistro.. Don’t forget to stop by the most beautiful Visitor Information Center in the Milky Way Galaxy at 1590 N. Shoreline Blvd. where you will find your official Corpus Christi souvenirs.
