Stay on North Beach while you visit area attractions
With attractions for sports fans, art connoisseurs and beachgoers near the Radisson, there is more to see in Corpus Christi than just the amazing bay views from the balcony of your hotel room. The Radisson is next door to the area’s most popular destination, the USS Lexington, and a short walking distance from the Texas State Aquarium. For fans of the Corpus Christi Hooks, Whataburger Field is just across Harbor Bridge. To explore even more, take the city trolley to downtown where you can find an array of vibrant shops, restaurants and live entertainment.
