All aboard the charter bus to Corpus Christi. This is a great destination with lots to see and do. There is the great Art Museum of South Texas. It was designed by internationally recognized architect Philip Johnson and completed in 1972. From its opening, the gleaming white structure has served as a landmark on the Corpus Christi Bayfront and an anchor of the downtown museum district.
An addition to the museum, designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, is scheduled to open in 2006. The addition will double the size of the current Art Museum and provide additional gallery, education and vault space. This museum is turning out to be one fine peace of art.
The U.S.S. Lexington is an interesting destination for your charter bus gang. Take a tour in air conditioned comfort and read about "The Blue Ghost", check the Ship's Store for some fine memorabilia and gift items. Read about the Volunteers who accomplish so much to keep Lady Lex history alive. Tours include climbing steep stairways, so comfortable clothing and shoes with non-skid soles are recommended. A Japanese Kamikaze pilot crashed his plane into the bow of this huge vessel during WWII, and many lives were lost. The ship was rebuilt and went back to active duty until she was decommissioned and is now a floating museum. There is also rumored to be a resident ghost of a young man dressed in 1940s style clothing that greets visitors to the radar room and then vanishes.
A wonderful stop along your charter bus tour of Corpus Christi is The Texas State Aquarium - the premiere Aquarium showcasing the Gulf of Mexico. See the animals and plant life that make up the rich gulf coastal waters. There is even an exhibit where your charter bus gang can put their hands in the water and sting rays will come run on the palms of your hands! There is also a gift shop to pick up some great souvenirs of this interesting stop along your charter bus tour.
How about some fishing? Corpus Christi is a fisherman's delight. Your charter bus group will find this place has any kind of fishing you could possibly want. Captain Clark's Phase II Express will take your charter bus gang out for an afternoon of saltwater fishing. Make sure everyone on your charter bus brings their cameras so no one gets to tell that big fish story about the "one that got away"!
Since you're on the coast, you know the seafood will be the best! However if seafood doesn't tickle your charter bus group's taste buds, here is just a sampling of the types of food available: Cancun has a great selection of Mexican cuisine, Crystal's Restaurant is a great place to stop for some great food and drinks. Executive Surf Club not only has great food, but very often has live music too!
Howard's Bar-B-Q is known throughout the State as one of the best places for bar-b-que. Island Italian Restaurant is a casual Italian restaurant Roger's Pizza offers up burgers, calzones, wings, ice-cream as well as pizza. Whatever your charter bus gang could be in the mood for, they'll find it here.
Now that you know what fun an excursion to Corpus Christi can be, book your next charter bus trip today!
