Corpus Christi Favorites

Corpus Christi Favorites

My husband was stationed in Corpus Christi, Texas for just under a year for primary flight training. During this time, I lived in Austin and Houston, which meant there were lots of trips to Corpus Christi for me! Even though I had lived in Texas my whole life, I had never been to Corpus before September 2018. We quickly figured out our favorite places to go, and although it’s a small list, it gave us many fun memories.

Corpus Christi Bay Trail

This trail is a paved sidewalk that runs along the Corpus Christi Bay. We frequently would go on short walks here (as the path is divided up into little sections linking the parks along Ocean Drive). The water is right next to you at some points of the walk, and far down a hill at other points. I watched the sunrise from this trail while Preston flew his first flight of primary.

Oso Bay Wetlands Preserve

This is a great little paved walking area that begins in a residential area and takes you through the wetlands. There are some unpaved trails one can take as well.

Whitecap Beach

There are lots of beaches on the island to visit, we frequently went here or to the Michael J. Ellis Beach. There’s always parking at the Ellis beach and we really loved going on walks here.

Coffee Waves: Alameda Location

Both of the Coffee Waves locations are very cute and cozy, but the Alameda location really did it for me. Also it was only a 2 mile walk from my husband’s apartment, so when I didn’t have a car I would walk or bike there. I like to go to non-Starbucks coffee shops (since this is all that’s available in my hometown).

Scuttlebutt’s Bar & Grill

This place has lots of daily drink specials, a sushi special, and tons of options. It is fun place to go with a group of people.

Fun Trackers

Also a fun place to go with a group of people, Fun Trackers gave us afternoons of entertainment for cheap. They have an arcade, mini golf, batting cages, and bumper cars.
