    Corpus Christi
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Corpus Christi is a fairly large city with a population of about 300,000. It is located on the Gulf Coast and was first visited in 1519 by Spanish explorer Alonzo de Pineda. It was first settled in 1839 by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney. Corpus Christi takes full advantage of its location for a wide variety of water activities and recreation, The town is also quite pretty and is one of my favorite places in Texas. The towns has several nice places to stay, to eat and to party. Corpus Christi also has several fine museums.

    Fondest memory: Highlights to my visit included: The seafood; the Texas Aquarium; the waterfront (especially the Nina); the Museum of Science and History; and the USS Lexington.

    seagulls love cheetos

    Favorite thing: A 45 minute drive from Corpus Christi will bring you to Port Aransas. You can drive up Padre Island or come in from Aransas Pass via the 5 minute ferry ride across the ship channel.
    A great beach for camping or just hanging out surfing, fishing, or just looking for sand dollars along the tideline.

    Fondest memory: The seagulls are not shy at all, and if you do feed them be prepared to be repaid for your kindness with 'deposits' that are not really that nice. lolol

    Favorite thing: Most of all, I enjoy the solitude of this beach. It's not hard to find a spot in which no one is seen in either direction.

    I believe in late June early July, a tractor trolls the beach clearing away the massive amounts of seaweed.

    Favorite thing: Although this beach is rather dirty at the moment with scattered trash and smelly seaweed, it's really fun to drive your car on.

    You can also park an RV or Trailer on the beach for camping or just use a tent.

    Favorite thing: Bob Hall Pier. I really don't like this pier because it is privately owned and you have to pay a dollar to walk on it. If you plan on fishing, you'll have to pay an extra dollar for your fishing pole.

    Fondest memory: are the incredible sunsets. The sunsets in Corpus always looked as if heaven were physically snapping up the daylight into it's arms. The sky radiates a bright orange and fades into a bright red. They are incredible!

    Favorite thing: I love a cultural area (I don't think it has a name)near downtown CC. You will find there houses from our past called Heritage Park, the Harbor Playhouse, the Museum of Science (not the official name), Asian Culture Museum...and my fave The Art Museum of South Texas. The Art Muesum has a place in it called the ARTcade. It is for anyone who enjoys doing art....especial child friendly. It is open T,W,F,ST,SN from 10-5 and Th 10-9. Admission is free.

    Favorite thing: Take a drive along S.P.I.D. (South Padre Island Drive) or Ocean Drive overlooking the Gulf Of Mexico and beautiful homes. Stop at one of the many parks on Ocean Drive and feed the gulls, fishes, and dolphins like I did.

    Fondest memory: Ocean Drive, laid back attitude, pawn shops and pawn shops, weekend flea market, and the beautiful beaches

    Favorite thing: When thoughts of warm sandy beaches and tropical breezes tempt you, do what Texans have been doing for decades, head to Corpus Christi.

    This perennial favorite seaside city has well earned its popularity. Perched on the Texas Coastal Bend, Corpus Christi and its neighboring communities, both on the mainland side of Matagorda Bay and on Padre Island have virtually anything a visitor could want in a seaside vacation.

    No other Texas coastal destination offers visitors as full a spectrum of choices as the Corpus Christi area, from big city nightlife to secluded fishing spots, from leisurely strolls on the beach to hiking through a National Seashore, from luxury hotels to intimate cabins.

    Favorite thing: I'm not sure what this building is. It looks abandoned with missing and boarded windows, but I'm sure it was magnificent at one time.
