Padre Island National Seashore - The South's Most Secret Beaches
Padre Island National Seashore Texas Everything is bigger in Texas, including this 70-mile stretch of beach between Corpus Christi and South Padre Island. Five miles of beach are open to two-wheel-drive vehicles; another 55 miles require four-wheel-drive vehicles, which adventurous types use to explore a wilderness as untamed as a wild mustang. nps.gov/pais
The USS Lexington moored in Corpus Christi Texas- She was reported sunk several times during WW II by the Japanese fleet but she always showed up again- this led her to be nicknamed the "Blue Ghost" by Tokyo Rose.
Morro Bay, California My favorite place for fish n chips, seashell hunting and tide pool exploring. So thankful to have been raised on the Central Coast and my children were able to experience it before we moved out of state.
