Tucked into a bay between the Padre and Mustang islands, Corpus Christi is a haven of sun, sea, and sand just off the Gulf Coast of Texas. What began its life as an outpost in the middle of nowhere is now one of the Lone Star State's most popular year-round destination. Although Corpus Christi is famed for its beaches and ample bird-watching opportunities, it's also a charming city with dozens of attractions. In fact, you might even find more things to do in Corpus Christi than you would anywhere else along the Gulf Stream.
