We have returned each visit to Corpus. The selections are excellent, unique and seem to derive from old family recipes. This is not 'fancy' but a comfortable, spacious, easy to get to location next to the boardwalk. Try to leave room for a dessert and do partake in the art shop.

A fabulous local place to see the best in local art. Always a couple of exhibits worth your time. Off of Shoreline Drive. Enjoy the restaurant inside for lunch. You won't be disappointed.

Clay and pottery classes. Seems to have lots of classes for kids. I go mostly for the juried watercolor shows because I know some of the artists.

Gorgeous place and this was the first time we visited there. Looked at much of the art work. There are several presentations we are thinking about purchasing. This is a popular wedding and reception venue and I can certainly see why. I think I may try to book for our 30th anniversary vow renewal!! There is a great shop where... More

The Art Center is filled with beauty everywhere you look!

Inside with the galleries there is a boutique where... More
