While in commission, the USS Lexington set more records and served the United States longer than any other Essex Class carrier in the history of naval aviation. With an abundance of tours and exhibits available to the public, the USS Lexington is the perfect venue to host a history-filled afternoon along the shores of Corpus Christi, TX.
