In addition to all the convention has to offer, FFA members have the opportunity to visit many museums and attractions. Corpus' convenient location beside Corpus Christi Bay, the Gulf of Mexico and Laguna Madre also makes it an ideal place for relaxation and soaking up the sun.
According to Holliday FFA member Paige Dodson of the Holiday FFA chapter, “The beach is one of the things we are looking forward to most, because many of us don't get the opportunity to visit it often.” Its sea-side location has also shaped Corpus' economy into one of fishing guides, watercraft retailers and exceptional sea-food merchants. One popular attraction is the U.S.S. Lexington Museum On The Bay. Tourists are able explore a decommissioned World War II aircraft carrier and are given a chance to try a flight stimulator and view its three story-tall Mega Theater. Another highly anticipated attraction among the FFA members is the Texas State Aquarium, which showcases the marine biology of the Gulf of Mexico. Corpus Christi also has much to offer for those with an interest in Texan heritage. The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History offers an engaging educational experience for members and advisers alike, as it is a collection of natural and cultural history with a focus on South Texas and its place in the world. Heritage Park Cultural Center is a national award-winning attraction that is displayed throughout 11 Victorian homes. It offers several educational programs that showcase the artistic and cultural diversity of Corpus Christi.
Corpus Christi is a city booming with history and culture, with one of their key industries being in agriculture. Katy Hicks (of Iowa Park FFA) expresses her anticipation, stating that, “There is no better place to show the pride and love that we have for the FFA, and to continue its history!”
