We visited on a Sunday afternoon. I was impressed with the number of people of all age groups stopping to take pictures of the statue and take selfies too. There are benches along the street to rest or people watch. Nice area.

We visited the Selena Memorial while walking the beach. It is a very nice tribute to a wonderful person and entertainer. Very sad that she passed so young.

This is a great part of the walk along the beach front. Pay your respects and get a great photo opportunity.

What a great place to visit not hard to find right in front of the Marina. We walked to Selena’s statue from across our hotel. So glad we got to see it.

Easy to find right by the fishing marina, Mirador del Flor is a Mecca for many. A beautiful statue in a sympathetic surrounding tells the story. There is parking right outside along with a bus stop only a 100 yards away.

It's a statue of a local celebrity "Selena". There is information on the floor under the statue and also an audio information about the statue.

We were walking to see a bit of the area around the restaurant we had visited and came upon this memorial. It is a very moving memorial for the Tejano star. I learned some from the Spanish/English recording inside the memorial.

My husband and I saw the Selena's Seawall Statue as we were walking along the Corpus Christ Seawall. The statue is in a sheltered dome like gazebo. It is a nice place to take a break in the shade as well.

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 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
