If you’re looking for a family-friendly hotel with lots to offer in a lively area, Omni Corpus Christi is a good call. Upon checking in, kids receive a backpack filled with fun items such as crayons and binoculars. They’ll love that as much as they do the indoor-outdoor heated swimming pool and the free racquetball courts. If you need help rejuvenating, swing by RevIVe Infusion & Wellness to hook up to an IV drip or get a vitamin injection.
