While Corpus Christi might not be as synonymous with the state of Texas as cities like Dallas, Auston, and Houston, Corpus Christi certainly has its own identity that resonates with Texans and people from all around the country. In fact, this beautiful coastal Gulf city is quickly becoming one of the premiere destinations for those looking to spend some time in a new city – and for good reason. With a population north of 300,000 residents, Corpus Christi is a populous city and one of the largest in the state of Texas. With a history that dates back to the mid 1800’s, Corpus Christi has long been prized for its beautiful natural harbor. Today, that very same harbor and its beautiful beaches are kept protected and preserved. For instance, the Padre island National seashore is a home to migratory birds and other endangered species. From there, the harbor front holds true to its standing as a nautical city, offering everything from the USS Lexington WWII aircraft carrier, to the Texas State Aquarium. With so much to see and do in Corpus Christi, it should be clear to see just why this city is quickly becoming one of the most desirable locations within the state of Texas.
