    Great experience for our 10 and 11 year old to learn about history up close and the price paid for our freedoms that we to often forget.

    The national seashore was amazing. We walked all around the beach area. There were tar balls floating in the water. It was so weird to me to see that. A lot of the ocean garbage ends up at this beach. So sad! Still very nice

    Lots of sea life to see in the Gulf of Mexico exhibit including sharks, jellyfish, coral, and hermit crabs. I really enjoyed the Caribbean Journey section with the flamingos and macaw. The signs said there was other wildlife in there, but I didn’t see them. We watched a 4D movie on sea turtles that was really good. We struck out at the Dolphin Bay, we didn’t see them in the tank. Outside we saw the alligator, rays, sea turtles, and a really cute otter. This is a really pricy attraction, I am not sure that it was really worth almost $90 for two adults.

    My sister and I made a special trip to Corpus to visit the museum. It was such a special experience and I loved every moment of it.

    Went to see the turtle release that is a true bucket list item. Very educational and a fantastic experience. The staff was great and so helpful at the Visitor's center. The sunrise was spectacular!

    Four of us went to a Saturday night game. Not a very large crowd. Nice ballpark with good views. Access to walk all around the ballpark. Food and drinks pretty pricey for AA ball. Fun to see the tall bridges out past the outfield.

    We were looking for a inside activity on a cool day in CC and enjoyed our visit to the Museum of Science and History. Broad variety of subject matter and lots of hands on displays to keep the kids entertained, very family friendly. Some of the displays need to be updated, like the power generation/energy display which was based on data from the 90's, but overall found it very interesting.

    This statue memorial is located on Ocean drive. It is very nice and attracts a lot of people. There’s some parking nearby. There’s a nice walk along this area.

    Got our pass to drive on the beach at the gas station on our way on and got right on the beach. Although we were told no 4 wheel drive was needed, today the sand was very soft and cars and trucks were stuck throughout the day. Beach is great! Great family crowd! Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is there are small blobs of oil all over the beach and when we got home, scrubbed and scrubbed, finally getting it off with Dawn and a washcloth. Gross! You could see oil rigs out in the distance in the gulf. Not sire if its related

    You can see this bridge in the distance, as you are about the reach the city if travelling from Austin for example and it is a great representation of the city: beautiful, strong and well maintained.

    We used it several times, crossing it from our hotel near Padre Island to visit the Aquarium and USS Lexington nearby.

    The parrots and most displays in the garden were empty. We got there right after they opened and walked the grounds. Definitely glad we were early by the time we left it was getting busy and hot.
