Activities

There’s a wealth of activities, attractions, entertainment, dining, and shopping in the Corpus Christi area. The ocean environment creates a lot of extra opportunities that aren’t available elsewhere. There are tons of places to hang out at the beach, go fishing, or boating. Wildlife is abundant in the area, fish are plentiful, dolphin sightings are common, and bird watching locations are phenomenal. Inland there are dozens of parks, pools, and skate parks.

If you want to take a break from the outdoor activities, there are shopping malls, restaurants, movies, and other exciting places to visit as well. Go on a date, grab some friends, or get the family and spend a day exploring some of these adventurers. If you don’t already live in the area, you’ll be thinking about moving closer soon.
