Corpus Christi

4.1

Texas Riviera

A gulf coast town with a semi-tropical climate, Corpus Christi serves as a getaway destination with a life of its own. The town is home to a major university and boasts a busy downtown. Hidden near the downtown buildings are historical neighborhoods with colorful wooden clapboard homes from the early 20th century. The city also has a heart for the beach and wildlife. Things to do include trips to the aquarium, botanical garden, and preserved national seashore. The city of about 300,000 has cattle, cotton, and petroleum at it roots, but the area now thrives as a deep-sea port and the largest coastal city in the state. In fact, it is the sixth busiest port in the U.S. Corpus Christi is in Texas Gulf Coast. Use our United States travel route planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Corpus Christi.

Where to stay in Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi offers an array of lodging throughout the city. Seaside condos, hotels, and motels clustered around the northern point of North Padre Island and spread along Mustang Island offer views over the Gulf of Mexico, and you can also set up a tent or park an RV at one of the campgrounds on the latter. An additional cluster of hotels, motels, and cottages sits along the west side of Corpus Christi Bay, providing convenient access to both the water and many of the city's prime attractions. The numerous national-chain hotels and motels lining South Padre Island Drive serve as viable options if you plan to divide your time between the barrier islands and downtown.
