Hey everyone!
So my dad is getting relocated to Corpus from Beaumont and our family of 5 is, of course, relocating with him
So, my question is obviously, what are the "good" areas? I've read a lot of forums where people have stated everything is bad. As with all cities, I'm sure there are places that are not so good and a good side. We've been looking at houses and they have been categorized into 'north', 'central' and 'south' side as well as places on Flour Bluff. I've read to avoid the North side, but I can't seem to find anything on Flour Bluff. The rentals seem relatively cheap in comparison, so I was wondering if there was something 'wrong' with the area or if there is a difference between north and south Flour Bluff as well. Apartments, condos and townhouses are out of the question, so if anyone has any suggestions of where to look for decent rental homes (3+ bedrooms that won't break the bank), that would be greatly appreciated!
None of us have ever been to Corpus. In fact, we all moved to Texas a year and a half ago from Ohio, so any input, stories and experience is really helpful! Thanks in advance.

We live in North Corpus Christi. What is known as the Annaville area. We love it. Teh area just north of us is called Calallen, it is very good as well. There is virtually no traffic compared to the South side or Flour Bluff area. I work in downtown, 15 miles from home, and am at work in 18 minutes. The downfall is, you have to drive to the South side for the mall and most shopping, but unless you are shopping for mall items or specific stores (Best Buy, Conn's, Cavendar's, Academy, etc.) the northside has everything. Walmart and HEB are near within 2 miles of my house. Also, Tuloso-Midway and Calallen Schools are execellent.

Portland, on the north side of the bay is highly recommended as a good family area.

My favorite part of town is the area between Ocean Drive and Staples. Not all neighborhoods in this area are nice (you can tell by just driving around).

I like this area because:

- Close to the water....if you're gonna live in Corus Christi, see the water often!
- Close to downtown
- Established neighborhoods with interesting houses and mature trees
- No traffic
- Did I mention it's close to the water?

Flour Bluff is a mixed bag as well, some nice areas and some really funky areas. The schools are surprisingly good. Flour Bluff is on the way to Padre Island, which is a big plus if you plan on going to the beach a lot. Although, it's a pretty short / easy drive from just about anywhere in CC.
