Local Area Attractions Near Corpus Christi KOA

With over 113 miles of Gulf Coast beaches and bay, the Corpus Christi area (including Padre Island and Mustang Island) is well known for surf and fun. Water activities range from building sand castles and fishing to extreme water sports. Kiteboarding and wind surfing are enhanced by the almost constant winds and relatively calm waters; Corpus Christi is one of the top 10 windsurfing spots in the world. Palm trees and whitewashed buildings are all along the beach and throughout the coast. Colorful sunsets highlight the marshes and shore.Although Corpus Christi is a city of more than respectable size, its downtown skyline has tall buildings side-by-side with boat masts. Downtown is behind a wide seafront boulevard, yet the modern architecture and the many museums give it a cosmopolitan feeling. Stroll along the pedestrian walkway of the 620-foot Harbor Bridge for an amazing view (night or day) of the marina, downtown skyline and beaches.Outdoor sportsmen and nature lovers will enjoy the trails and natural beauty of Lake Corpus Christi State Park and Choke Canyon State Park. A few miles away in Alice, Texas, La Copita Ranch and Nature Trails offers bunkhouses for rent and miles of hiking trails, with new wildlife blinds and birding stations. Night sky observation points focus attention upward to the stars.Back in Corpus, you can take a behind the scenes tour of The Texas State Aquarium, and even be a dolphin trainer for a day. The Aquarium is ranked one of the top 15 attractions in Texas.Interstate 37 takes you into the heart of Corpus, which sits at about the center of the Texas Gulf of Mexico coast.

Wind Surfing

Wind Surfing

Windsurfing is a surface water sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing. Windsurfing straddles both the laid-back culture of surfing and the more rules-based environment of sailing. Windsurfers can perform 50 foot high jumps, 360 aerial loops, aerial wave riding moves in the waves, as well ads other "freestyle" moves in flat-water sailing conditions. Windsurfers were the first to ride the world's largest waves, such as Jaws on the island of Maui, and, with very few exceptions, it was not until the advent of tow-in surfing that waves of that size became accessible to surfers on more traditional surfboards. Extreme waves aside, many expert windsurfers will ride the same waves as surfers do.
