Thrifty Car Rental –Corpus Christi (CRP)
1000 International Boulevard
Corpus Christi , TX 78406
When you're headed deep into the heart of Texas, you have more than a few metro areas to choose from. If you're looking for a spot that's a little more off the main map, why not head to Corpus Christi? With great beachfront and a number of striking locations to enjoy nature and art, the city has a grown-up feel that's perfect for any traveler wanting to indulge in some off-the-cuff sightseeing. Grab a Corpus Christi rental car and start exploring!
While you could stick to the lovely surf of Corpus Christi to see magnificent wildlife, taking your Corpus Christi car rental to one of the area's many nature centers and preserves may be a more worthwhile option. Just outside of city limits in the town of Port Aransas sits the beautiful Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center. Encompassing numerous parks, open spaces and a preserve, you'll quickly become immersed in the many birding habitats that the dynamic landscapes of the area support. If you want to stick closer to town, the Hans A. Suter Wildlife Area is also a great place to see a variety of birds, native Texas plants and other wildlife.
Museums for every taste
Like history, science and art? Corpus Christi has a museum suited just to you. Steer your Corpus Christi rental car in the direction of Chaparral Street and visit the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History. Specializing in Texas history, the museum offers a look into the past lives of Texas Native American residents, the French and Spanish explorers who visited the state, as well as the local history of Corpus Christi. The South Texas Institute for the Arts is also located in town. Heralded by many as having one of the most unique collections in the area, STIA is a great place to explore the work of local artists like Bruno Andrade as well as international talents.
Lexington in Texas
One of the most arresting attractions in the city is the USS Lexington. Park your Corpus Christi car rental at the dock and head on board this esteemed World War II aircraft carrier. Feel free to explore virtual battle stations, check out the seasoned hangars and catch an informative movie at the Joe Jessel Mega Theater while here.
