Corpus Christi Summer Bucket List

by Visit Corpus Christi Texas

Making the most of your summer vacation in Corpus Christi is easy when there is so much to choose! There are miles and miles of beaches to explore, but if you're a fan of all things experiential, this is your go-to Corpus Christi summer bucket list.

Go Fishin'

Where: Red Dot Fishing Pier
Located along the JFK Causeway on your way to Padre Island, Red Dot Pier offers visitors a chance to fish the Laguna Madre without a boat. With pole rentals and live bait available, try your hand at catching a red snapper or two. Don't forget your fishing license!

Go Fly A Kite

Where: Padre Island National Seashore
Kids are on to something with kites...they're super fun!  Bring your kite to Malaquite Beach at the Padre Island National Seashore and fly it as high you as can.

Learn To Wind Surf

Where: Worldwinds Windsurfing
Corpus Christi is a world-class windsurfing destination because of the steady year-round wind. You don't have to be at the world-class level to enjoy this sport, take a lesson at Worldwinds Windsurfing and enjoy the view!

Play With Fire (safely)

Where: Most Nueces County Beaches
Evenings are best for building a beach front campfire along Mustang and Padre Islands. Grab your friends, family and a beach blanket or two and use these tips for a totally ingenious beach front campfire. Remember, following the rules is cool!

Rent A Jet-Ski

Where: Fun Time Rentals
Get your heart pounding as you ride the waves of the Corpus Christi Bay on a jet-ski for two. Rentals range from fifteen minutes to one hour, so have as much fun as you can handle! Life jackets provided.

Ride The Wind

Where: Chute’em Up Parasail
Anyone can do it - if you can sit, you can fly. Float like a cloud and watch the dolphins swimming in the water below. Don't want to go alone? Fly as many as three people at a time!

Watch The Sunrise

Where: Bob Hall Pier
Get up early to catch the sun rising over the Gulf of Mexico and wander around to see one of the best views of the skyline with an extra splash of color.
