Two things actually. First, for fans of the young Tejana this is a place of remembrance, as shown by the flowers they leave. Easily accessible, right in the heart of her hometown. Second, for those who never knew her it explains why she was so...More

Nice statue in her recognition. Cool artwork. Interesting quick stop to admire the statue and the view of the ocean.

After years of hearing about this it was quite an honor to be able to visit it. It is on Corpus Christi's beautiful boardwalk at the intersection of Shoreline Blvd and Peoples Street / Antelope St. There is a recording that narrates Selena's bio at...More

I loved Selena and sad to see her again this way. I wish she was still here with us. The statue is a nice memorial, right on the corniche.

Went to see this after visiting the museum. This is a nice memorial to her, tastefully done, in a scenic area. Right by many fishing boats, etc. I do wish they'd two the lettering on the memorial, as it is getting hard to read. But...More

The statue is much smaller than I expected. But the memorial plaques is sweet, and a recording tells of Selena's success and sad early demise. I wish the statue were oriented differently to frame up a better photo -- now the statue looks away.

This well cared for statue of the late Tejano singer, Selena, is located along the beautiful bayfront in Corpus Christi; in the heart of downtown. The access is free, but parking can require some additional walking to get to the memorial.

Grave site, no. It is a little hard to find because there's no signs showing where it is at. The museum does have a cost but it's like less than 5 dollars.

No. Just take I37 down to Corpus. Her statute is on North Shoreline Blvd and her grave is at Seaside Memorial Cemetery on Ocean Dr

No bridges other than overpasses along I-37. In fact I-37 empties out onto North Shoreline Blvd just a few blocks from the Selena statue on the corner of Shoreline Blvd and Peoples Street. Shoreline is a divided Blvd so keep... More
