Corpus Christi, Texas
Corpus Christi is a Texas Gulf coast town and has a population of 286,000 people.Port town, military town, tourist haven, and fine weather all combine to make it a very livable city. The older areas near the water are more walkable than the outer suburbs so consider that you will need a car once you've got your Corpus Christi apartment sorted out.
There are a number of districts and island areas within Corpus Christi, and each one has a distinctive flavor. You'll find different cultures too like the Hispanic one, surfers, cowboys and military. It makes for an exciting place to live.
The Islands, The Islands
The locals enjoy the same destinations that tourists arrive for. Mustang and Padre Islands all house state or national parks and seashores, and provide an enormous amount of outdoor recreational activity from fishing to boating to surfing to hunting. Deep sea fishing excursions are a must for anyone with the slightest interest in catching the proverbial ‘big one'. The arts are well represented with places like South Texas Institute for the Arts, Harbor Playhouse Theatre, and the Corpus Christi Botanical Gardens and Nature Center which is as great for learning as for strolling around in.
Stars of Texas
With the Gulf at its front door, seafood is certainly one of the top dishes on Corpus Christi menus but there's also excellent Mexican, steak and international cuisines to choose from as well. Katz 21 is well known for its steaks as is the Republic of TexasBar and Grill. Located on the 20th floor of the Omni Hotel, the views of the water are amazing at sunset. Or if you prefer simpler, try Hester's where everything is always fresh and they serve breakfast all day long. Your Corpus Christi apartment and your new neighborhood will offer plenty of exploring of both mom and pop places as well as upscale ones.
Nightlife in Corpus Christi is just as varied. You might want to start at the Havana Clubwhich is pretty swanky for a tapas bar but they have either a great dj or live music every night of the week. Cassidy's Irish Pub offers a more down to earth experience but is just as much fun too. There are a number of neighborhood bars that offer up live music of all types so go exploring as soon as you are settled in your Corpus Christi apartment.
Corpus Christi, Texas is Texas at its best.

I've got dogs. What are the best places in Corpus Christi for being outdoors with pets?
While there are no formal dog parks in Corpus Christi, the residents are gaining strength in petitioning for an official off-leash dog park. In the mean time pet owners can bring their furry friends along to the exquisite Padre Island National Seashore, the longest underdeveloped barrier island left in the world with 130,000 acres of natural terrain. Leashed dogs are welcome on Padre Island's park, beach, and campgrounds. Dotz Dawgs and Drafts is a great local joint where they serve up hot dogs, ice cream, and other treats on their dog-friendly patio. They will even bring your favorite pooch a doggie bowl for water!

I was born and raised in Corpus. After many years, I would love to move back. How are job vacancies in the city? My husband and I are wondering where we should live? We are both looking for jobs.
Hello! A move back home is always a good thing. Corpus Christi has an unemployment rate of 6.5%...about two points below the national average! Seems like a good place to look for a job! There are a lot of nice areas, but it depends on what you'd like to be near.
