Corpus Christi is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Texas and has the nickname of "Sparkling City by the Sea." The heart of Corpus Christi is essentially the main entrance to the city's shopping and dining district, which makes it an ideal place for tourists.
Located 130 miles southeast of San Antonio, Corpus Christi is the eighth-most populated city in Texas.
There are many experiences to be had when visiting Corpus Christi, including the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History, the Texas State Aquarium, the South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center, and the Selena Museum, dedicated to the famous Texan actress and singer.
You can also stroll along the rivers and beaches to enjoy great views of aquatic life, including a variety of fish found throughout the region, as well as a wide variety of wildlife like birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
Corpus Christi has a number of railroads, buses (actually buses disguised as trolleys), and routes to other cities in Texas.
For the past 40 years, the downtown Corpus Christi arts center has served as a hub for the creativity of South Texas artists who exhibit and sell there. Expand your interest in art by visiting one of the many galleries, museums, galleries, and galleries on the Texas A&M University branch campus located here. Other colleges in the area include Del Mar College and Saint Leo University-Corpus Christi.
Corpus Christi is also known as the "Bird Capital" of the United States, mostly because it has a large, shallow bay where thousands of birds feed each day. In fact, the San Diego Audubon Society even named the city "America's birdiest place," which goes to show you just how many birds there are in the south Texas city.
Corpus Christi has several neighborhoods, including Bayside, North Beach, Annaville, Clarkwood, Flour Bluff, and Gardendale, to name a few. It became an incorporated city in Texas in 1852.
