Corpus Christi, Texas!

Corpus Christi, Texas!
Our gorgeous detailed, laser engraved and precision cut Map of Corpus Christi, a city located in Nueces County, also extending into Arkansas, Kieberg and San Patricio city in Texas with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Corpus Christi, ecclesiastical Latin for "Body of Christ" is a coastal city in South Texas.
The USS Lexington, nicknamed the Blue Ghost, is an Essex-class aircraft carrier built during World War II for the US Navy. 
Since 1992, the ship has been docked in Corpus Christi where she now operates as a museum. 
The USS Lexington was also part of the set for the 2001 film Pearl Harbor.
The USS Lexington is as tall as a 19 story building and as long as three New York city blocks. 
It's so large, you could play 3 football games at the same time on its flight deck! 
The USS Lexington was the first aircraft carrier to have women crew members in US Naval History, and the ship served longer than any other Essex Class carrier in the world.
The city is accessed by two major bridges, the Harbor Bridge (US 181) and the John F. Kennedy Causeway (PR 22).
Corpus Christi was the nation's first city to offer free Wi-Fi. It was done in attempt to allow remote meter reading after a meter reader was attached by a dog.
The popular Texas burger chain, Whataburger, opened its first location in Corpus Christi in 1950.
Author Fred Gibson, who wrote "Old Yeller" worked as a journalist for Corpus Christi Caller-Times in the late 1930s.
One of Corpus Christi's best known churches, the Corpus Christi Cathedral, has existed since the 1940s. However the church as a congregation has been in the city since the 1840s.
Just south of Corpus Christi is Padre Island National Seashore, the longest stretch of underdeveloped barrier island in the world.
