5 Top Tourist Attractions in Corpus Christi
The city of Corpus Christi, on an inlet to the north of Brownsville, has grown in popularity over the years and is now one of the most visited tourist destinations in Texas. Much of the attraction is due to its beautiful coastal setting, its many miles of beaches, its important conservation areas, and rich flora and fauna. The area was settled after Spanish explorer Alonso Alvarez de Pineda arrived in 1519, the man responsible for giving the pretty tropical bay its Latin name of Corpus Christi (translated literally as the Body of Christ). These days, this attractive city is as likely to be called the Texas Riviera, and for good reason: numerous fine hotels and resorts, along with many exciting attractions and events have helped cement Corpus Christi's reputation as a must-visit destination.

Dig in to the past with these fascinating historical sites! #HistoricBC
York, Pennsylvania (Photo Tour)
York is a marvelously intact and well-preserved historic city, which seems to have escaped the urban renewal era unscathed. It is also one of the more significant small cities in America, having served as capital of the Continental Congress during the Revolutionary War. Between 1800-1840, it ranked within the 100 most populous urban centers in the United States. There is a great collection of colonial and Victorian architecture in the city, and most of it appears to be beautifully maintained.

Journey back in time through cobbled streets of Philadelphia and uncover a wealth of national treasures – the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the U.S. Constitution to name a few. Nearby, Valley Forge puts the American Revolution into context at the National Center for American Revolution and Gettysburg is an important historical shrine. Visit an artist’s studio in the woods where Wharton Esherick, an important American artist and sculptor worked with wood - the studio he built is now a museum for his creations. Take a ride down scenic back roads through Covered Bridges and past Painted Barns (“advertising barns”), which tell their own stories about early America. Pittsburgh, a city once known for pollution, has changed direction and is becoming one of the cleanest cities in America. Go inside their new convention center to see what makes a building ‘green.' Meet hundreds of rare, exotic birds at the National Aviary. Farming is a way of life and agriculture is still the most important industry in the state. Modern dairy farmers tend to hundreds of acres of crops with huge harvesting equipment while their Amish neighbors perform the same tasks the old fashioned way - using only horses and mules.
