Planning trip to Corpus - best place to stay/visit for kids

We're planning on a long weekend trip to Corpus (from San Antonio). I have two little ones - 4 and almost 2. I'm looking for suggestions on best hotel/location to stay in. Would like a kid friendly hotel also close to activities/sights that would be fun for little ones. Any suggestions?

I would stay downtown at the Holiday Inn Emerald Beach. It is right on a small city beach that is safe for the kids with no vehicular traffic and very near downtown attractions like the Texas State Aquarium. Not the newest or most highly rated place in the city but great for the kids. Even has one of those indoor playscapes as well as an indoor pool.

I agree with Gehrig, although you must realize that this beach

is on the bay, and not the ocean. If you want to be on the real

beach, then you would need to be on Padre or Port A.

There are not many really good things for kids of this age that

I can think of. But, being at the Emerald beach Holdiay Inn,

puts you right by the seawall and many other things to do

downtown. The aquarium is just over the bridge on North

Beach, and you don't want to stay over there. It is much

nicer where Gehrig suggested.

As for Padre and Port Aransas, they both have less for

small kids than downtown Corpus has.

I hope that you enjoy your trip!
