While you're in Corpus Christi be sure to check out the bronze statue of Selena! We stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown Marina and this exhibit is within walking distance. The statue is located along the water as well. Be sure to take a photo in front of the statue!

Selena had a passion in her music that many take the time to come visit the memorial on shoreline and we really enjoy where it is located . Daisy C. Aeviasmom.Le-vel.com

The memorial to the late singer Selena is prominently displayed on the city's bayfront in Corpus Christi, Texas. The setting is open and accessible. Admirers can be found there almost around the clock -- day & night. The sculpture is very realistic of Selena with a thoughtful look out toward the bay. Parking is nearby. Enjoy the bayfront while there.... More

This is a statue of the late entertainer Selena. It has a loop of a recording which explains who she was. It is in a gazebo along the shoreline. It is a very nice remembrance statue in a beautiful setting. I didn't see trash or vandalism. It is sad if this does occur as it would be quite disrespectful. I... More

The Selena Memorial Statue is worth a few minutes of your time if you are strolling along the seawall or want to take in some of the shops and restaurants nearby. Short audio which continuously loops in English and Spanish explaining a little about Selena's impact on Tejano music and the Corpus Christi area. Wasn't too crowded on a Saturday... More

My fiancé and I hate that this statue is on the walking path of the sea wall. Any enjoyment we could possibly have by walking on the bay is tainted by huge families crowding up that area, blaring loud tejano music, not watching there kids run in front of you or in the street which is normal for south Texas...

You WILL feel feelings here. If you have a soul. If you're caught unexpectedly by the abysmal sadness in realizing that Selena is no more, you will feel feelings. Tributes and notes are written on the ground. Seeing someone write one, sullen and silent, WILL change your mood. So, get in. Take pics. Get out. With that being said, I'm... More

Stopped here on my way through corpus. It was worth a few minutes stop & parking was easy near the memorial! The memorial is well-maintained & you also get a great view of the ocean. Steps nearby to sit on for a little while and take in the moment.
