Just down the street from Cottages By The Bay, take in a beautiful view of the city skyline and Corpus Christi Bay. Watch ships come into the Port from all over the world and enjoy the light show on the Harbor Bridge at night. Make footprints in the sand on the beach or take a walk on the mile-long “Beachwalk.”

North Beach is the perfect place for families. Our bay beach is ideal for young children, since it does not have the same strong currents and undertow that occur on the Gulf beaches.

North Beach is home to Corpus’ top tourist attractions, the Texas State Aquarium and the U.S.S. Lexington, as well as several gift shops and beachfront restaurants: Fajitaville, Yo Philly Cheese Steaks & Subs, Blackbeard's on the Beach, and Pier 99.

Just across the Harbor Bridge in the S.E.A. District, you’ll find Hurricane Alley Waterpark, Whataburger Field minor league baseball stadium, Concrete Street Amphitheater, the Art Museum of South Texas, the Museum of Science and History, and the American Bank Center.

In Downtown Corpus, walk along the Bayfront with sailboats in the Marina on one side and high-rise hotels and office buildings on the other. Book a ride on a boat at Harrison’s Landing, a floating restaurant and watering hole in the city's Marina Arts District. Or, rent a bike through the city’s bike share program operated by Zagster.
