Has work been stressful? Do you miss your girlfriends? Have you been talking about planning a weekend get-a-way with the girls but haven’t? Now is your chance! You have waited too long! Planning your girl’s weekend does not have to be burden. I have put together a list of activities/attractions you may like.



  • Hester’s Café – Downtown
    • If you are visiting the area, Hester’s is a must visit location! Imagine waking up one morning, driving down beautiful Ocean Drive, ordering brunch and sipping on an ice-cold mimosa, all while taking in breathtaking views of the bay. This lunch and brunch spot has EVERYTHING from melt-in-your-mouth baked treats, hearty breakfast plates, lattes and mimosas to filling salads and sandwiches.


  • Executive Surf Club
    • Since 1990, the Executive Surf Club has been Corpus Christi’s most reliable post-work happy hour, as well as the perfect casual family dining spot. All while supplying the most beer on tap in the city, alongside the best in local music. So, grab the girls and head downtown to the Executive Surf Club. Don’t forget the pup & enjoy our dog friendly patio!


  • The Post at Lamar Park
    • Named for the U.S. Post Office that formerly resided there, The Post kicks the gastro-pub concept up a few rungs with pre-Prohibition style cocktails and menu items like lobster truffle mac & cheese, the hipster of jalapeño poppers: Brussel Sprouts drizzled in honey Sriracha and the Heisenburger and Hot Mess sandwiches. No wonder The Post’s creative cuisine grabbed the attention of Texas Monthlyin the “50 Greatest Burgers in Texas” round-up.


  • Spa Day 
    • What’s a girl’s weekend getaway without a spa day? Treat yourselves to relaxing and rejuvenating massages at Anthony’s Aveda Salon and take in the beautiful and calming environment with your besties. After all, spa days are like a reset button on your life, right?
  • Yoga

    • Ever tried going into downward dog on a paddleboard? In the middle of a bay? Here’s your chance! Situated on a houseboat, Water Dog is the world’s first floating yoga and fitness studio. And yes, it’s right here in Corpus Christi. Water Dog Floating Yoga offers yoga and fitness classes on the upper deck, as well as Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) yoga, SUP Pilates and SUP Fit classes right on the water. Grab your girls and unwind with a calming sunset yoga session or start your day with an energizing sunrise class. Not to mention, you will fall in LOVE with the view.
  • Shop 
    • Ready to do some serious shopping? A girl’s weekend in Corpus Christi wouldn’t be complete without a trip to local shops and big-time spots! Start your shopping spree with an adventure to La Palmera with over 100 shops and eateries, La Palmera is a premiere shopping and dining destination in the Coastal Bend.
    • Draped in mature, sprawling oak trees and Texas mesquite, at the corner of Alameda and Doddridge. Lamar Park displays the low-slung mid-century modern vibe of the year it was built, 1955, and shakes it up with a contemporary twist. Generations of locals and Coastal Bend visitors consider Lamar Park their go-to fashion destination. Just a whisper of the names of the shopping center’s popular anchors, Ann TaylorChico’s,Talbots or Texas style-powerhouse Julian Gold sends some into a fashion frenzy.
