Bron Doyle’s brightly painted fleet of E-Z-Go four-wheelers prowls the sands of Port Aransas, ferrying groups, snacks, and drinks to and from the beach. From within each four- or six-person cart, passengers feast their eyes on sweeping views of the surrounding landscape while taking refuge from the sun under the cart’s roof. Bron’s Beach Carts is stationed a short trip to the beach and in close proximity to local hotels, making for a more convenient mode of ground transportation than standing on a surfboard and waiting for a super strong gust of wind.
Imaginations run wild aboard the USS LEXINGTON. The sights, the sounds are so real and so intense you'll feel like you've been transported back in time. There are thousands of stories within these steel walls and thousands more still to be written. It's time for you to experience this one-of-a-kind experience.
Ear-splitting shrieks quicken the pulses of passersby as they approach the Nightmare Factory, a forsaken complex comprised of two distinct, hair-raising attractions. Once they’ve crossed the threshold into the blood-splattered corridors of Insanity51, voyagers tiptoe cautiously past hostile denizens as a narrative begins to emerge. The tormented spirits that haunt these hallways are insane captives subjected to top-secret government experiments that have rendered them even more fearsome and better informed on tax policy. In Nightmare 3D, foolhardy explorers walk through a carnival funhouse that looks more like the scene of a mass murder. Distorted mirrors and shifting floorboards create a skewed, sinister sense of reality, forcing guests to ponder if they have passed into another dimension populated by their worst nightmares.
The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History offers a chance to interact with everything from geology and biology to sunken ships and American history, all through the lens of South Texas examples. The 100,000-square-foot building contains many standing exhibits, a theater featuring local productions, and the Children's Wharf playscape. Glass cases house artifacts from one of the oldest shipwrecks in the Western hemisphere—the resting place of the San Esteban and Espíritu Santo—which plunged, storm-wracked, into the waters around Padre Island in 1554. The museum even boasts a Smithsonian-designed exhibit that explores the Seeds of Change, the five things brought to America via ship that changed its shape forever, including corn, potatoes, disease, horses, and a competent cartographer.
