Corpus Christi, also known as "The Texas Riviera", "Sparkling City by the Sea" or "The Real Windy City" (thanks to the heavy Gulf winds typical for the Bay Area), is a coastal city located in the South Texas region. If you are a lover of the beaches and the sea, the water and wind sports, nature tourism or museums and history, then this city will surely have something to offer to you. With more than 250 sunny days per year, Corpus Christi is an ideal place for planning your summer vacation. However, if you like the scent of the sea, but sunbathing all day long is not your cup of tea, you don't have to worry. One of the windiest US cities offers a variety of activities that depend on sea and wind, such as windsurfing or sailing. There is also something for the museum and history lovers. For instance, you could visit the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History, which displays two life-sized replicas of the Columbus' Fleet or the "floating museum
" located on the USS Lexington.
