Depends on which part of town you go to, kind of like here. From what I've seen, "trashy" isn't an accurate word. Most of Nashville is very clean and upscale compared to Corpus. Surprisingly so for a fairly large city. Probably due to revenue from all the stuff to do there lol as well as having alot of people with money due to the music industry, and being a major hub for the health care, publishing, banking and transportation industries. A nationally recognized academic college in Vanderbilt University. And they have a very large and active police force. Maybe you should visit sometime instead of taking someone's word for it. What the hell does being a federal agent have to do with it anyway? Is that supposed to impress me? Lend credibility to them? Don't make me laugh. Racial prejudice? What city doesn't have it's fair share of that? Obviously there are ignorant, narrow-minded people everywhere.

Grow up. I was objective. Everyone is entitled to their opinion as I already said, but don't speak out of ignorance. At least I've experienced both. Heck I've been to just about every state in the country and Canada with the exception of far northeast, and I've seen more appealing places than Nashville. This just isn't one of them.

yes there are ignorant people everywhere, but most of them seem to come from Tennessee. and yes, you are correct. i was trying to impress you just as you were trying to impress me with your exploits around America.. . i have lived in better places than CC, but home is home. you come on here and bash CC and then dont want anyone to bash your hometown...really?
talk about being ignorant. send me a direct message if you want to continue this. on a closing note, i dont think they used "trashy" to describe the city, but rather its inhabitants...thats not my opinion by the way..

Here we go with the childish bashing again. You can bash Nashvile and TN in general all you like. Still doesn't change the fact you are speaking not from experience, but what you've heard from like 1 or two people , who were apparently hanging out in the ghetto from what they described. And I don't care if you're impressed with where I've been or not, if I did I would make you a list. Just giving you some perspective. You've got mail....

I'm not saying it's all bad, but I'm 35, single, and active. Oh, and I don't fish and kill defenseless animals. That seems to be the big leisure activity down here. Woohoo.
Well, I will speak up as a tourist, who LOVES to return to Corpus Christi every single year. And I am from Tennessee also (Knoxville/East TN. area). (and I'm 40 and single).

I have relatives who live in central TX (Temple area), and when I visit each year, I always make time to drive down and spend several days in Corpus. I first visited about 10 years ago, and absolutely fell in love with the city. It's an area where I would dearly love to live someday. I love the bayfront, the T-Heads, the breathtaking view of the bay and city from the jetty on North Beach, etc.

Also, I love the relaxed feel of the city. It's not pretentious, and trying to be something it's not, and I think that's why I like it. (everyone always complains that Corpus isn't progressing or hasn't changed, and to me, that's not necessarily a bad thing). It's large enough to have most everything one needs, but it benefits from being small enough and "off the beaten path", so traffic and congestion is really never an issue.

OK, so it may not be the mecca of entertainment and activity that you are looking for, but I think there is a lot to be said for smaller, everyday things like walking along the bayfront and seawall, driving out to the bait shack at the end of north beach and leisurely fishing on the jetty, dining over the bay at Joe's, having a homemade breakfast at Andy's Kitchen, enjoying a mouthwatering burger at Wallbanger's, driving down SPID to shop and catch a movie, having dessert at the Frozen Custard Co., pigging out at Bill Miller's BBQ, going fishing on the bay on Captain Clark's boat, exploring the amazing USS Lexington and marveling at how beautiful she is at night when she's all lit up with blue lights on the bay, visiting the Texas Aquarium, catching a Hooks game at Whataburger Field and watching fireworks afterwards over the bay, etc., etc.

Anyway, sorry Corpus is not your cup of tea, but it certainly is mine. I love to explore and immerse myself in the city every year, and I NEVER tire of visiting or returning. Also, please don't judge all Tennesseans by his comments. He may not care for Corpus, but I love the "Sparkling City", and I am counting down the days till my vacation this year when I can return.

(Also, there is more to Tennessee than just Nashville. Come over and visit us in East Tennessee and enjoy Knoxville, Chattanooga, and the Great Smoky Mtn.'s. It has a totally different feel than Nashville.)

Has anyone heard news of the new mall that is planned for the Staples/Saratoga area? The last thing I heard was there was a snag about who the anchor store would be.

I'm not sure of how the traffic flow will affect those of us who live in the vicinity but I'd like to be able to do my Christmas shopping someplace/anyplace but Padre Staples. I hate that stretch of SPID during the month of December.

It may be just me here, but I honestly don't see CC as a major improvement over SA, unless you like the beaches that much.

Default Negativity in CC

Sometimes it seems that people in CC are too busy complaining to take the time to see the great changes taking place! I lived in CC in the mid 1990's, got transferred away and couldn't wait to return. Is it perfect? Nah - but no place is! I have lived in many different cities all over and found CC to offer the most, overall. The recent changes on Shoreline near the American Bank Center make it a great destination - a place to hang out with the family and what a view! The State has provided funds to create a business incubator which has had huge success over the past year. . . we have a wonderful university and community college and much support for small businesses from all levels of government here. There is a growing group of people who are committed to seeing this city PROGRESS and we are beginning to see much-needed changes.

Unfortunately, with some people, you can give them any silver lining and they will put a big cloud around it.

Celebrate Corpus Christi and become a part of the solution instead of a part of the problem!

CC has a lot to offer. There are also some areas you may not want to live in. This link below will help you understand what areas have the most crime, so you can stay away from them.
