In this video we check out the sights and sounds of Corpus Christi Texas. We show you a few of the beaches and boat areas as well as pass through Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, visit the Mirador de La Flor monument to Selena and a replica of the first Whataburger hamburger stand

Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) originally opened in 1947 as the University of Corpus Christi. It was almost completely destroyed in the 1970s by Hurricane Celia. It joined the A&M system in 1989.

In recognition of Selena Quintanilla-Pérez “Selena”, the Queen of Tejano music, who tragically lost her life in March of 1995 at the tender age of 23, we saw the outside of the Selena Museum and Selena’s seawall. Known as Mirador de La Flor (Lookout of the Flower) there is a life-size bronze statue Selena sculpted by H.W. “Buddy” Tatum.

Whataburger’s founder, Harmon Dobson, had a vision: a five-inch burger so big that people couldn’t help but exclaim “What a burger!” when they picked it up. He opened the original Whataburger on Ayers Street in Corpus Christi, Texas on August 8, 1950. In this video, we visit the replica of Dobson’s first burger stand on the site of an operating Whataburger restaurant, at 4126 South Staples Street in Corpus Christi.
