Is Corpus Christi picturesque at all? Does it have palm trees? Beautiful beaches? Does it attract tourists?

Its pretty in parts - nice beach - but has ugly refineries.

Actually there are plenty of threads on here including recent ones that discuss Corpus - just look down the list or search.

Corpus is great. It has it's share of problems and isn't perfect by any means, but it's a really laid-back cool place to be. Plenty of events year round and lots of outdoor stuff to do. Downtown and Ocean Drive are very picturesque. Tourists all year long.

Jonas Brothers? I'd say Corpus is much more like a Robert Earl Keen song. Fun to listen to, but never quite a hit.

I can drive 45 minutes to shop at Corpus Christi malls or 1.5 hours to shop in San Antonio - I don't have to think twice. San Antonio is cleaner, the people are friendlier, the stores have up to date merchandise, the people are friendlier, better chance if you get into an accident the other driver will have insurance, the people are friendlier, no "poor me - I'm discriminated against" attitude that seems so common in South Texas. Oh, and did I mention the people are friendlier?

Default What's it like?

The Bay Front and jaunt down Ocean Drive ...as well as coming in over the causeway and the bridge..is easy on the eye. As a city, very provincial. As I-37 so aptly points out, it's the "end of the road." Many locals prefer it that way.

Corpus Christi is thirty years behind development.stay away from the north side of town,downtown.you are sure to get mugged or vandalized.city streets are littered with potholes,and parts of the city north look like current Detroit neighborhoods,dilapidated and vacant.anything past airline due south towards Padre island is where you want to go.it is safer,we'll maintained and friendly.its like two different worlds.it is cleaner,newer and is a better representation of what Corpus Christi isn't.
