Corpus Christi is one of the places I'll be looking at when I'm done with school in late Nov. Although LA is still my first choice since I have a lot of friends out there, Corpus Christi I heard has a very low cost of living and they pay their teachers alright.

I'm a very liberal SWM, but who also enjoys country music and friendly people. Austin is also on my list but if I'm going to be really hot in Texas would rather be near a large body of water to go to the beach.

Any opinions on the town?

Corpus is a really great place for young people. It tends to be more of a laid back party city for young people and it is hard to keep your studies with the beach right there! Austin tends to be more liberal then Texas in general but you will find some liberals in just about every city in Texas but more so in Austin. Austin is a nice city but getting huge and traffic is horrible. LA, I would seriously reconsider moving there if you value your life! Too many murders there in LA. I would go with Corpus myself. Yes it is HOT, but the wind blows a lot right off the ocean so if you can find a place right on the ocean it is a lot better, not as hot as inland. I remember the breeze when I was on the beach and it wasn't that bad but I got back to the hotel and no breeze and WOW it was hot! Hope this helps.

I'm not sure if you are asking this because you you don't want to be in a place "too" religious, or if you are religious and want to know what is available.At any rate,you would find what you want either way.The city has a lot of Catholics and Baptists,with a good mixture of all the rest of the main faiths.But contrary to many out of state people's opinion,you are not an oddball if you don't attend church.A lot of live and let live in Texas.

Just wondering about the religious climate. I've lived in Indiana for 5 years now and have a lot of very religious friends so that wouldn't be something new, although I am not religous and was oddly enough rasied Quaker. I was just wondering what the general culture was in Corpus Christi.

Yeah out of staters (including me) really have false preconceptions I'm sure about Texas culture, one being religion. Thanks for answering my question. Good to hear its live and let live though.

Religion here,contrary to what some believe,is not an "in your face" kind of thing.There may be more people who attend church regularly than in the rest of the country,and the evangelical Protestants are more conservative than the rest of the country (Catholics are Catholics),but no one is chunking rocks at you if you don't go to church.

I have some family just sw of you in the Washington area.I seem to remember some Amish around there somewhere.

That is right Lifertexan. There are many different churches and even religions in Texas. Mostly Catholic in Corpus with the large Latino community there and like Lifertexan said, Baptists and they are laid back and not religious zealots or anything. My relatives live in Denton, Texas and there is even an Islam mosque there and buddhists live there too. Lot of Texans don't go to church either but many do. You don't have anything to worry about in Texas.

Yeah there is a really nice amish bakery in that area, only been there a couple times since there is not much out there, but nice rolling hills and very green. There has discussed in another post but if you live in the city in Corpus Christi are tarantulas something you will see often?

If you are looking for a teaching job good luck I have been trying for 3 years. I have my application in 5 school districts in the area. This is one of the toughest areas to get a job. If you haven't yet try to become bilingual certified. This is your only guarentee.
