Next weekend is the first weekend of summer break, and while it isn’t officially the summer season yet, it’s hot enough here in Corpus Christi to start enjoying summer activities. So, if you’re looking for a great way to kick off the summer with your family, we have a great list of fun things to pack the weekend with. Read on to see the Mike Shaw Toyota school’s out bucket list.
Hit the Beach
Nothing screams summer like a day at the beach. Luckily we have miles of beaches in our beautiful city. So, take your pick and enjoy an amazing day in the sun. You and your family can pack a picnic to enjoy on the sand, or grab a net to set up for a friendly game of beach volleyball. Check out a few of our favorite locations for soaking up the sun:
Check out the Aquarium
After a day in the sun, you might want to cool off indoors. For that, there are several attractions in the area that your kids will love, and just because school is out, doesn’t mean the learning has to end. There are plenty of places in and around Corpus Christi that take an exciting path to education. One of those places is the Texas State Aquarium. The indoor aquarium is focused on species found in the Gulf of Mexico. Each exhibit explores a different aquatic habitat, land area, or a specific species.
