Planning several mini trips after that before January.

Canyon Lake, Cedar Park, Katy are other areas of interest. My son is 14 , a good football player and Katy gets a lot of attention even up here. Plus Katy is close to MD Anderson and after being diagnosed with Cancer back in May thats a factor for me to consider but I'm sure CC has good treatment centers as well.

Being near water is a big factor for me. Surfing and time on the jet ski = bliss for me. We make the best of our limited amenities up here but the variety y'all have down there is incredible. I want that for my kids.
I would imagine occupational therapy would be a popular field in TX. I do not know exactly what kind of cancer treatment CC offers, because I have never needed it, but a quick google search show several results in the area. If you cant find the treatment you are looking for here, Houston is only two hours and forty minutes from Calallen, (NW edge of CC. Region around IH-37 and IH-69 interchange).

Look up Calallen High School and their football program. They have had a winning record and have been in the playoffs every year since 1984. Your son would have a great opportunity to play for one of the best and most consistent football teams in the state. Other great football programs in the Corpus Christi area are Flour Bluff, Portland, and Refugio. Refugio has one of the best, if not the best, football program for small schools, and has been nationally ranked. It has even been featured on ESPN.

Well CC has a lot of water to be near. You have plenty of beaches with North Beach, McGee Beach, Mustang Island, Padre Island Natl Seashore, and Port Aransas. You also have fresh water options with Labonte Park and the Nueces River, and Lake Corpus Christi, (which is almost empty right now because of the drought). There is plenty of jet skiing, surfing, wind sailing, fishing, deep sea fishing, and other water activities to experience.

That's probably why Hispanics usually refer to non-Hispanic whites as "Anglo" instead of "Causasian."

I rarely hear "gringo," but I hear "güero" on a daily basis.

I don't know if it's referred to as an area, but it's not the greatest part of town.

Molina isn't a project. It's probably the most middle class neighborhood on the Westside. It was built as the first middle class suburban neighborhood after desegregation so most of it's residents were the wealthier Hispanic and African Americans moving out of the nearer neighborhoods. It's the area south of Horne road.

According to 2010 census maps, the highest concentration of blacks in Corpus Christi is in an area bordered by Leopard Street (on the south), Nueces Bay Blvd. (on the west), W. Broadway St. (on the north), and N. Port Avenue (on the east), near Hillcrest Park. It was 36% black and 58% hispanic in 2010, though the black numbers were in decline (2000-2010). Most of the other areas around town look to be 6% or less black.
