Headed down in 3 wks! We go every year and get a couple rooms/duplexes at Corral Cay on the beach. Walk to the beach daily, hit up the stores just for fun, eat, walk trails, and did I say eat!!!! Everywhere is good! Have fun and relax. Make a drive to Corpus and go to the Aquarium.

We have a fishing trip planned as well with Poco. So ready!!!!

Drive into Deadman's Hole. It's a once in a lifetime experience.

As a local, my two Corpus favorites are the U.S.S. Lexington Naval Aircraft Carrier and the Aquarium. The new renovations are awesome.

As far as Port A its stores, the beach I guess and Candy shop for sure as mentioned above. In between Port A and Corpus Christi is a new Schlitterbahn Waterpark. If you want to eat in Port A which is a 95% chance you will, go to The Brewery. They have some excellent beer choices and amazing food. Especially their appetizers.

Just returned from 5 days of fly fishing. I'd highly recommend San Juans, it's great tex-mex. I know it's not what most eat on the island, but it's really good.

Liberty Hall, Roosevelt's, Venetian are great, but pricey. Iries was a big favorite.

Moby ****'s restaurant is good place to eat and get a drink. Souvenir store inside plus many other stores near by. Depending on price your willing to pay for hotel, there is a Holiday Inn Express, Best Western, Red Roof Inn, a local hotel called the Plantation. You might find something affordable there that meets your needs.

We always stayed at the Sandpiper growing up, never had a bad experience. Definitely need to check out the Lexington!
