A place to vacation with a child?

I am looking at Corpus Christi for vacation with my husband and 2 year old. We would be traveling the first week of March if we decide to go and staying for 4 nights or so. My main questions/concerns are:

1 - will there be things to do for my 2 year old? I know that there is the beach and the aquarium. Is there a list out there somewhere that has good ideas for children in the CC area?

2 - spring break. I know I will be traveling during spring break (I, myself, am a college instructor and am on spring break). However, we can't stay in a hotel that has a lot of students do the the excessive noise at night - I remember those days ! :) Is CC far enough away from South Padre Island to miss the spring break crowd?

Any and all suggestions or ideas are welcome. Thanks in advance!

**You should fare okay, Texas schools normally start spring break the 2nd or 3rd week...for example San Antonio 9-13th, Austin/ Corpus shcools 16-20th

..even so, S. Padre is well enough away from from CC. There will be some students but it should not be calm compared to SPI.


there are several public beaches...for renting you can look into Mustang Island...


as mentioned in other posts...many people prefer Port Aransas


if you use the search box above..you can type in 'mustang island' or 'port aransas' and you will find lots of info. (you may want to repost your question in the Texas forum...possibly a wider response)
