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!
