Possibly moving to Corpus Christi for work and I have a family...
I have heard the crime rate is pretty high there. What neighborhoods are "good" and what areas are "bad" when looking for a place to live? I am hoping to rent somewhere that is close to the ocean. Is Padre Island any good? Where else?

If you check the sticky thread "Official Corpus Christi Info Thread" at the top of this forum there is a link to a detailed discussion about crime in Corpus and the police statistics for each area. Anyplace close to the ocean is pretty safe in regard to crime. It could however be at risk for hurricane damage and flooding. A lot of families seem to like Portland, on the NE side of the bay.
