You'll be living close to Price's Chef, Hester's and the Nuevo Cafe--all places to get a cup of coffee and all with different atmospheres. Welcome again--and get in touch when you get settled!

Default Hello All!

Hello again! Hope all are well!

We are settled in Corpus, and adjusting to the new pace of life. (We'd spent many years in a really vibrant neighborhood in Houston, so things here are a bit more....well...quiet. But that's not all bad!!)

Thanks again for the neighborhood recommendations - as we get to know Corpus better, we still find that the neighborhood we are in (near Cole Park) is by far the best fit for us in town. We love the character of the neighborhood and it's proximity to the occasional events in the park. Hopefully we'll be able to afford to buy a place here in the near future!

Changeofpace, I hope your move went well and that you are finding Corpus to your liking! We have found the people here very friendly and helpful, and are pretty happy here so far.

Does anyone have any recommendations for good Mexican food? We'd love to find some great Tex-Mex, and also some more "traditional" Mexican food. Also, are there any decent Cuban/South American restaurants in town? We're missing our black beans and fried plantains!!

Thanks for the info!

Welcome! Glad you're here and adjusting. It's not Houston, but....hope you like it anyway.

Our favorite Tex-Mex is probably Taqueria Acapulco and there's one on Weber and Gollihar and also on Airline across from ToysRUs. Other people swear by La Playa. There are certainly plenty to choose from.

I don't know of any Cuban restaurants, but there is a Puerto Rican restaurant in Habeeb Square on SPID between Airline and ... Nile? It may be Rodd Field Rd., but I think it's Nile. I've only had flan there so can't comment on the food. It's in the same shopping center as the original B&J's Pizza, which is pretty good. Also, a Carribean restaurant is going to open off of I-37 behind the federal courthouse. Don't know what they're going to have.

We will be closing on our home Jan 2 (spending new years in the Best Western Marina in Corpus as we leave Minnesota with all our worldly possessions on Dec 30th. Our custom built home is in Cornerstone on Flour Bluff. I will be commuting to Minnesota since I was recently assigned Chairman of Mass Transit for the Republican Convention in Minneapolis_St. Paul Sept 1-4, 2008. I will start with the RTA in Corpus in Sept.
We are so excited to start our new life in Corpus.

Default hi all

We're thinking of moving to Corpus and want to know about the area near Lincoln Park and Parkview Gen Hospital. Any opinions? Any areas to avoid, such as high crime areas? We are quiet, normal folks who dont lock our cars in the driveway. Actually I leave the keys in the ignition cuz ts easier to remember where they are. lol

Neither of those to areas (Lincoln Park, Parkview) exist in Corpus Christi that I know of. Are you thinking of Chicago?

LOL! I looked them up and found them on a Google map. It's the neighborhood behind the intersection of Gollihar and Weber. I don't know what Parkview Gen. Hosp. is now--many, many years ago it was a small osteopathic hospital. Lincoln Park must be a small neighborhood park.

Google Street View shows something that looks like a small hospital where Parkview Gen. Hospital is shown.
