Corpus Christi

Visiting Corpus Christi in early Feb what type of weather to expect?Recommended resturants and things to do or see ? Has anyone done the horseback riding on the beach? How far is it from Corpus Christi to South Padre Island? Is it worth the drive down?

We are spending 3 days here then going to San Antonio for 2 days.

Coming from Mn.

It's cool and rainy in February, will not be warm. Bird watching is good at the beach and further up at the Aransas reserve. You can't drive the length of padre island and the inland route is not feasible for a short trip. Head up to San Antonio from the coast, and maybe you can catch the painted churches in Schulenberg before heading west to the Alamo.

You could find decent weather in February it is just hit or miss. Might get sunny 60's and 70's if you are lucky.

South Padre Island is a 3 hour drive. Plenty of beaches here on North Padre and Mustang Island. No need for 6 hours in a car for the beach.

Horseback riding on the beach is horseback riding on the beach. Don't know what to tell you. Company gets good reviews.

Restaurants:

Water Street Oyster Bar for local seafood

Republic of Texas for fine dining

Brewster Street ice House for bar and grill

Snoopy's for fried seafood and water view

Harrison's Landing for floating outdoor view of city

To do:

USS Lexington Museum on the Bay

Texas State Aquarium

Seg City Segway city tour

King Ranch tour in Kingsville

Some things to get you started!
