Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi, Texas
Corpus Christi is one of the Top 10 most-populous cities in Texas, and the main destination along the Texas Gulf Coast between Houston/Galveston and the Rio Grande Valley cities at the far southern tip of the state.

The city boasts one of the busiest ports on the Gulf Coast and many attractions that are built around the city's coastal waters.

Numerous Corpus Christi-area beaches, including Padre Island National Seashore and Mustang Island State Park, are draws for visitors. Fishing, birding and windsurfing are popular outdoor activities.

Corpus Christi is home to the Texas State Aquarium, the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay, and several regional and local museums and historical sites of note.

Sports enthusiasts can take in minor-league hockey and baseball games, greyhound racing and collegiate athletics.

The area offers numerous condominium and RV park accomodations. Visitors seeking more customary accomodations can find nice hotels downtown along the bayfront, and many chain hotels along South Padre Island Drive (Highway 358, the main road through town heading south toward the beaches).
