Corpus Christi is a popular base for touring the Texas Gulf Coast. The beaches of Port Aranas, Mustang Island, and the north end of Padre Island are nearby. There are state parks and national wildlife refuges to visit, and great boating and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and Corpus Christi Bay. The aircraft carrier USS Lexington is docked in Corpus Christi Bay and has been converted into a floating naval museum. The museums, theaters, and parks of the Bayfront Arts and Science Park is a focal point for cultural activities. This ride follows the bike lane that extends with only a few breaks for the entire length of scenic Ocean Drive, from the Bayfront Downtown District to the naval air base and back. Terrain: flat, with a constant breeze off the ocean. Road: well-traveled road, with a dedicated bicycle lane for most of its length.

This is a A+ cement paved trail. Ride along the bay for over 10 miles of sidewalk! Great weekend will do again! Even took a drive to the Beach Access for a nice walk on the beach, which is very Quiet and away from Tourist.
