There is quite a bit of history to see if you visit Corpus Christi. The USS Lexington sits in the bay. Replicas of Christopher Columbus' ships are boardable at the Museum of Science and History. A statue of deceased pop star Selena overlooks the road that runs along the bay.
History buffs who are also baseball fans can add an additional historical pit stop to their trip itinerary if they are in Corpus on April 3. On that day for the first time, the Hooks will play an exhibition game against the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders. The Islanders have played numerous collegiate contests at Whataburger Field since the Hooks came to town in 2005. However, this will be their first meeting with the Hooks.
