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.

This memorial captures Selena's essence and legacy. It's a shame that people don't respect the area. Its beauty and view of the marina captures Selena's big dreams and accomplishments, and matches the beauty that was recognized around the world.

The structure holds the memorial to Selena and sits on the seawall. Quite the tribute to someone that was loved internationally.

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.
