Lived there 15 years. Its friendly, good but not great schools, great waterfront still not too expensive. Lots of retired people from all over. Lots of artists. Some pretty good restaurants. Less touristy than Port A. Friendly casual

I replied to this question when the OP posted it in the Texas forum. Unfortunately it appears that thread was deleted instead of being combined with this one. I'm not going to do it all over again. Suffice it to say that Rockport is a great community, a real working class community, a good number of retired people there, prettiest part of the Texas coast, lots of things to see and do, several festivals every year. Not really a tourist destination, but popular with snow birds, human and wild.

Calling CC a dump is extremely harsh and untrue. That is probably why you have gotten so few responses here. It has a lot going for it, for a small city.

The OP isn't calling Corpus a dump. He's reporting that he's been told that is is somewhat of a dump.

I loved Rockport. But - jobs. If you can make that commute to CC, I'd say go for it.

I live in the South portion of Arkansas County 24 min to cc. CC among other things is a speed trap with greedy police. It has a lot of crime but also cheap housing.

Sure hope you live in southern Aransas County, if you're correct in stating you live in Arkansas County, you are driving entirely too fast!!! Sounds like you may be living in Aransas Pass. If so, you should know, I renamed Aransas Pass - Nonpompous Pass. This all happened many years ago.

Have you calculated the time it will take driving to Corpus using the new road that was North Navigation, while the new bridge is being built? Remember, it connects to I-37 near Corn Products.
