  • Stopped by on a whim while killing time on the waterfront. It's free (although giving a donation is nice of visitors) and actually interesting if you have any kind of reaction to surfing or beachiness...  more »
  • Attended a private dinner for 30 at the Surf Museum. Great food and a great space for a small gathering. Unique and has some great history on the walls!  more »
  • The museum is rather small but I'm not a surfer so it may be of interest to surfers. If you're in the area you may want to go but I certainly wouldn't travel too far to go.  more »

  • The place is a little hard to find because it isn't right on the street. It is behind the Oyster Bar on Waters Street. On the corner of Waters and Lawrence. The people are really nice. Took about an hour to view and read the exhibits. No charge but they do take donations.
  • Great local atmosphere. The artwork and the historical articles are outstanding. The museum works on donations and does a good job.
  • Free, well-done small museum. My son loved the model where he could make waves.
  • South Texas and surf, tall and midget, fast and skinny, etc. Even though the gulf is not known for its surf opportunities the museum is awesome because it chronicles the Rise of surfing and how it affected those in the area. They have an awesome collection of boards and photos, the only problem is there isn't enough, it takes maybe 30 minutes to read and sewer everything...
  • Neat museum. Free (donations accepted). Kids enjoyed it. Super friendly. Video was awesome.

Where to stay in Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi offers an array of lodging throughout the city. Seaside condos, hotels, and motels clustered around the northern point of North Padre Island and spread along Mustang Island offer views over the Gulf of Mexico, and you can also set up a tent or park an RV at one of the campgrounds on the latter. An additional cluster of hotels, motels, and cottages sits along the west side of Corpus Christi Bay, providing convenient access to both the water and many of the city's prime attractions. The numerous national-chain hotels and motels lining South Padre Island Drive serve as viable options if you plan to divide your time between the barrier islands and downtown.
