I will officially be relocating to Corpus Christi in early November of this year (about 5 or 6 weeks from now). I have never been there (yet) but I am sure I will love it (I am moving from Reno, NV)! I am renting a longer-term AirBnB (from Nov-Feb) to get to know the area before I find more permanent housing. I work remotely so I will have no commute. I am a solo woman in my mid-forties - what should I do/where should I go to get to know the area? Specific places, nice beaches, things to do (solo activities), places to eat, etc. What are the main streets in towns I should drive to learn the area? Any suggestions are appreciated! I am very excited about this new chapter in life.

If you want an immediate deep dive into the local flavor I'd also check out the Trade Center. It's a an old grocery store converted into booths businesses rent out. It's not so much flea market but a constantly evolving set of small businesses. It's very interesting.
