Welcome to Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi is a resplendent South Texas coastal city, with a small population and a laid-back atmosphere. Just 143 miles (230km) from San Antonio on Interstate 37, and boasting its own international airport, travellers to Texas would be sorely remiss to pass up the soft sea breezes and perfectly blue skies that characterise this 'sparkling city by the sea'. Over and above the beaches, visitors can enjoy the cultural sights on offer in the city's museum district (including the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay), birding trails that wind through impressive botanical gardens, and the bustling promenade, with its vibrant nightlife. The Padre Island National Seashore, the longest undeveloped stretch of barrier islands in the world, is easily accessible from Corpus Christi, and should not be missed.
