I have relatives from Corpus Christi and some of them are very unfriendly and fake people but those are just my relatives.

Corpus Christi itself is a NICE city and the beach is actually really nice. I don't see why people complain about the beach when it looks a lot nicer than it did in the past.

They've got great beach property there. North Padre is actually quite nice. I've always loved the drive along Ocean Dr. and Shoreline, and there are great sights. The JFK Causeway offers good views, too. I probably wouldn't want to live there, but I highly endorse it as a great place to visit.

i live south of corpus, and moonlight in corpus (work second job) and the one thing i can tell you, 90 percent of everyone i talk to, whether they are transplants or native, dislike living in the corpus area and want to move, or would move if they could. i dont like living in a place where folks dont want to be, dont have civic pride.....
on the other hand, you dont hear too many folks in the Hill Country bashing the area!!
when i lived in Ft Worth and rural counties west of Ft Worth, i rarely ever heard any negativity about where people lived. i never once said to myself "gawd i wish i could get the hayull outta here" (only reason i even moved at all was because my husband at the time enlisted in the military and we moved out of state)
i want to live where folks LIKE to live, where they are PROUD of their town and like to show it off to out-of-towners and relatives from other places.

But, gang, you can always think of something good about Corpus Christi, too. Like getting a Corpus Whataburger! That's where it all began!

Oh Belle stop Raining on his parade.. He is right though that a WHAT-A-BURGER from Corpus is rather good. Never had a Storm Burger.. do tell Belle.

Case, if you get a chance goto Gulfport Mississippi on Highway 49 and visit the What-A-Burger there.. its outstanding, and much bigger than the ones in Texas, and much fresher but don't tell any Texans, they may cry. =)

I'll have to try that. But I think they're all going to be like that, anyway.

As far as Corpus Christi the tourist attraction, they've got some pretty good things. What I failed to mention in a previous post was they've got plentiful opportunities for visitors (the Aquarium, for example), so I actually see some positives negating all the negatives that we've mentioned already.

I'm too far away right now to give one a go Belle, but when I pass though that area again, I will make sure to deviate from my path to stop and try one. Thanks for the links and the heads up.

I grew up in Corpus Christi, but left when I was 40. When I was in Ray High School we all used to complain that there was nothing to do unless we went to the beach. There is just not too much entertainment available, unless you plan to be outdoors constantly. My concern about CC is that so many areas, neighborhoods have gone down hill. I don't see shopping areas, neighborhoods getting a face lift that would help the economy and welcome newcomers to the area. It is very sad to see. I'm afraid that many people might be on gov. assistance and have no money for updates on their property. I have traveled many places in Mexico from the border to the west and east coasts, and what I see in parts of CC resemble the poor areas. Maybe it is a City Management problem. Don't get me wrong, I love Corpus and the people. I just want to see updates with buildings, neighborhoods and streets.
