Touring Corpus Christi by Land, Air & Sea
If you think the beach is all a Corpus Christi trip will include, you’re in for a beautiful surprise. Get ready to walk, soar or swim to see everything Corpus Christi has to offer like never before!
Engulf yourself in the cultural and historical aspects of the Coastal Bend on a tour like none other! Take a seat in the air-conditioned 15-passenger van and ride through beautiful downtown Corpus Christi on your very own guided tour. The possibilities are endless! Some sample tours include:
- A history focused two-hour tour, including beautiful sights such as Old Bayview Cemetery, Heritage Park and the Centennial House
- An approximately three-hour art-focused tour to visit the Art Center, the Art Museum of South Texas and several other art galleries and studios
- The Family Fun Trek, Corpus Christi’s newest tour designed for families with children with discounts for child participants
In addition to these, you can also explore the "haunted" side of Corpus Christi on a Ghost Tour, which includes sightseeing with a spyglass, a wee bit of history, a dab of art and a speck of spooky ghost stories, as well as a customized tour to suit your sightseeing desires. Some new tours coming soon are culturally based -- think wine and Pokemon Go! Pricing for tours starts at $21.00 per person, with discounts for active military personnel, as well as special offers for additional savings throughout the year.
Location: Most tours leave from the seawall located adjacent to the Corpus Christi Art Center at 99 N. Shoreline Blvd.
