“Nice facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

There wasn't anything going on at the Centre when we went yesterday, but it is a large, newish facility, with some nice gardens around it, as well as the start of the Laguna Madre Trail. The big excitement for the day was the continuing presence of a Flammulated Owl in the bushes just to the south of the building - lots of birders there, and one gentleman ffering views of the owl through his scope. Fantastic!

There is always something interesting going on at the Convention Center. It is very well maintained and utilized. I wish we had one like it where I come from!
