Near the convention center, make a quick stop to view this beautiful depiction of sea creatures. Take time to do the nature walk which is free and close by.

These murals are stunning. My 16 year old and I had fun doing fun photos here. Doesn’t take long to see and was a fun diversion on a chilly day.

I have visited at least 30 Whaling walls throughout the world and this is as good as any. It is easy to close to as it is at ground level. I have appreciated Wyland's art for 20+ years and several of his pieces. He is...More

These murals are beautiful. There is also a nature path to follow that tells all about the vegetation on the island. Good learning experience for families.

We enjoy this each time we come to birdwatch along the Laguna Madre Nature Trail. The individual who repainted it did an excellent job.
