Explore Corpus Christi

As a native Texan and avid traveler, I sometimes find childhood haunts feel smaller when I return as an adult. I found the opposite to be true of Corpus Christi. During the monthly Art Walk, I discovered a robust arts and entertainment community, along with a growing craft coffee, cocktail, and brewery scene. A day of surfing at Bob Hall Pier and a treasured afternoon combing the quiet beaches of Padre Island National Seashore sealed the deal: Corpus Christi is bigger and better than ever, and it’s only just getting started. -Hannah J.

Near downtown Corpus Christi, you can’t go wrong with any of the scenic stops along Shoreline Boulevard and Ocean Drive, but a further trek across the John F. Kennedy Causeway is worth the drive to North Padre Island for a more-secluded spot.
