Spring Break in Corpus Christi - Mustang Island

Overview

Our trip was taken the week of spring break and we decided to camp. We choose to go to the Corpus Christi area and camp at Mustang Island. Corpus Christi is home to Waterburger. There are several on every street corner. I think there are like 26 or so in the city. We had a really good time during the day but at night we had a few problems. Our 2 year old son seemed to get kind of sick while we were there. I think maybe allergies or something like that. So of course camping outdoors in the humidity by the beach did not really help that. However during the day were able to play and see a few things. Well we spent quite a bit of time driving around looking for stuff to see and do. I have to tell ...Read More

Mustang Island State Park is a pretty secluded place. It is right off the main road but there is nothing else for a few miles around it. There is an RV like campground, which is just about 40, or so slots that have water and electricity for RV’s to hook up too. We were one of the only tent campers there. When we booked our site we were not aware that the campground was like this. We expected it to bee just like other places we camped. There was a place were you could camp right on the beach, but you could not have an open fire and there was no electricity or water. The beach was only about 110 yards from where we were so it was not too far. But it was not what we had in mind. There is only one...Read More

Home of the Corpus Christi Hooks (Houston Astros farm team). This ballpark is very much like Dell Diamond where the Round Rock Express play. Water burger field is a very family oriented place. There is plenty of things for kids of all ages from 1-year all the way to adult age.Young age kids: there is a playground with slides, monkey bars, and swings for the kids to play on. There is a personal person there to kind of monitor the kids, but also request that the parents stay close by. The parents are aloud to play and run around with their kids but there is also a place to sit if you just prefer to watch.Kids between 6 and teenage: There is a basket ball court, rock climbing wall...Read More

Port Aransas was probably the highlight of our trip. Like I have already mentioned before Mustang Island and Padre Island were pretty lifeless, but Port Aransas had more of what we are looking for. We spent most of the day in car driving around but that was because we kept expecting more and then found ourselves further away from that which we already found. In Port Aransas there is an HEB which was great because we needed to pick up a few things and did not want to have to drive all the way back to the main land. There were several souvenir shops, which always have endless beach, wear, shoes, kites, wave boards, mugs, cups, jewelry, tattoos, etc. Anything and everything you could want. There were als...Read More

I have already mentioned that Mustang Island and Padre Island are pretty deserted and secluded areas. Compared to South Padre Island and other beach areas I have traveled to there was not a lot of stuff in the area. I kept getting confused and we drove around a bunch looking for stuff. It appears that what Mustang Island is good for is parking on the beach and staying there for the day hanging out, drinking, and playing in the sun and sand. Padre Island is the longest barrier island and hosts a National seashore, which protects many of the natural habitats and wild life that exist on this barrier island. The cost is $10 for seven days to enter and rive through. The bird watching area cost ...Read More
