Texas State Aquarium

Life In Texas: Texas State Aquarium

Texas State Aquarium

     Earlier this week, I took my family on a day trip to the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi. It is an amazing place. It is educational opportunity after educational opportunity (great for a homeschoolers field trip!).

     They have 8 different shows a day, but we only saw 2 while we were there. We saw the Wild Flight Show and the Dolphin Show. The kids also got to pet stingrays and a turtle that they had walking around. When they got too hot (because this is South Texas, after all), we stopped at the food court and had an ice cream.

     Both of the girls loved the dolphin underwater viewing area. I have to admit, that's also my favorite. The dolphins love to show off so they'll swim right up to where you are watching and spin around.

     If you're in Corpus Christi and you have an entire day free, be sure to check out the aquarium.

     Below is a sample of the hundreds of pictures that I took.

Great pics! It's been about 2 years since we've been. I wonder what all has changed since. I remember the kids had a blast though.

It's been about a year since we were there last and there were a few things that were different. I like that it's always changing. That way, the kids don't get bored.

Thank you.

It's a great place to take the kids. The water park part opens March 1st so we'll probably go back soon.
