Life in the City

Corpus Christi is close to Padre Island, which can provide a peaceful break after a long day or on the weekend. There are also ample opportunities to watch sports, including the Hooks (AA baseball) and the Corpus Christi Ice Rays (hockey). It is quite a diverse city with a military presence, large Hispanic community, oil and energy industry professionals, and “may be the only city in Texas where cowboys and surfers live harmoniously." It is also home to some of the top high school baseball talent in the entire country.
