“Acclaimed Orchid House & Plumeria Garden”
One of the Coastal Bend’s major visitor destinations and leading nature tourism facilities, the 180-acre South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center showcases nine uniquely-designed floral exhibits and gardens, including the acclaimed Orchid House and Plumeria Garden--plus the Bromeliad Conservatory and Butterfly House both opening in 2009. The Botanical Gardens & Nature Center has a full calendar of horticultural and environmental educational classes and workshops for adults, and camps and Junior Master Gardener series for youth. Several picturesque sites, including the beautiful Rose Garden & Pavilion, are available to rent for weddings and other celebrations
If you are planning to visit Corpus Christ or the Coastal Bend in general for your holidays, then one of the best places to pop in for 2-3 hours is the South Texas Botanical Gardens.
9 different exhibits await you to explore them, with the Orchid and Butterfly House being the best attraction. Just keep in mind, that in contrast to many botanical gardens in Texas, this one is relatively small, but the good news is that they are thinking of expanding it.
Overall, a nice place for a walk with eclectic art exhibits being a nice add to the gardens. The best period to visit the gardens is during spring or early autumn. It is great that the entrance is FREE!
