Wow, this is a great place to visit! Whether local or tourist, everyone should give this seaport museum a go. This is where the new official Tall Ship of Texas is located, the Elissa. It's a beautiful piece of sailing history, and you can see it up close and personal. Things can get a little hectic if you are trying to visit on days that the cruise ships are boarding, so either come early or choose a different day.
Bottom Line: Do it, you'll love it.
