Labor Day Weekend 2021
Making your way to Corpus Christi this Labor Day Weekend?
With so many activities to do, places to see, and restaurants to try, you'll get your final fix of summer before fall kicks into gear. Here is your ultimate Labor Day Weekend guide to make the most out of your trip to the Gulf Coast Capital.
Beach Day Outing
Coast like a Texan on Corpus Christi’s 100+ miles of beautiful beaches. Check out Mustang Island, McGee Beach and North Beach – all near restaurants, shopping, and parking areas. Have some family-friendly fun in the sun, build sandcastles, and enjoy the warm summer waters.
Dive Deeper at The Texas State Aquarium
Discover the amazing underwater worlds of the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and beyond at the Texas State Aquarium. Travel on an aquatic journey from the shores of the Gulf of Mexico out into the open sea to encounter thousands of animals representing more than 360 species. Experience dive shows, animal feedings, hands-on interactions with sharks and stingrays, and entertaining and educational presentations featuring dolphins, birds, and otters. Explore a wetland habitat in Nearshore, and spend some time in Living Shores, where you can touch starfish and urchins! Get up close and personal with Atlantic bottle nose dolphins from above and below the water in Dolphin Bay, and look to the skies as hawks, owls and falcons soar through the Hawn Wild Flight Theater. Visit the Islands of Steel exhibit, modeled after an offshore oil platform, where sharks, rays and sea turtles live among stingrays and schools of fish. Touch and hand-feed stingrays at Stingray Lagoon, admire the majestic birds of prey in Eagle Pass, and spy on reptiles basking on the shores of Swamp Tales. Watch as sea turtles gracefully glide through the waters of Tortuga Cay, and see North American river otters play the day away in Otter Creek. Catch a bite to eat at the Pepsi Shoreline Grill, and cool off in the H-E-B Splash Park.
