Corpus Christi vacation rentals

Corpus Christi: A handy guide

As soon as you arrive in Corpus Christi, you’ll understand why locals call it the “Sparkling City by the Sea”. This popular resort on Texas’s sun-kissed Gulf Coast boasts beautiful beaches, world-class water sports, and spectacular wildlife. From fishing and surfing to museums and parks, this laid-back city offers plenty to keep the whole family happy and engaged—with the added bonus of fabulous weather year-round. Fortunately, many Corpus Christi vacation rentals come with their own pool, barbecue grill, and hot tub, so you can keep the alfresco vibe going 24/7.

Bay-watching Corpus Christi-style

Corpus Christi makes the most of its enviable location on the Gulf of Mexico, offering a wide range of sports and natural attractions. The piers that extend into Corpus Christi Bay provide relaxing settings for inshore fishing, or you can up the excitement level with a deep-sea charter to test your skills against tuna or marlin. This breezy stretch of coast is one of the best spots in the country for windsurfing, kiteboarding, and sailing. The bay also attracts a rich diversity of seabirds, making it a magnet for wildlife enthusiasts.

Corpus Christi’s prize draws

Corpus Christi vacation rentals on North Beach deliver 2 of the city’s most popular visitor attractions on your doorstep. Dominating the shoreline is the vast hull of the USS Lexington, now a floating museum—open daily throughout the year. The legendary aircraft carrier saw extensive service during the Pacific War and recently claimed the limelight once again with a starring role in the 2001 movie “Pearl Harbor.” Nearby, the Texas State Aquarium gives you the chance to dive beneath the waves to discover the teeming marine life of the Gulf of Mexico, including Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, and stingrays.

Corpus Christi sizzles whatever the season

You won’t need to panic over what to pack for your vacation—Texas’s temperate coastline can be relied on to deliver warmth and sunshine whatever the season. Even when the mercury soars, the gulf breezes keep things refreshingly cool. The popular summer months of July and August see a hike in demand for Corpus Christi vacation rentals by the beach, so you’ll need to book ahead for the best availability at this busy time of year. Beat the crowds and benefit from low-season bargains in February and March, when it’s still warm enough to enjoy the great outdoors.

Get wild in Corpus Christi

North Padre Island is a popular spot for Corpus Christi vacation rentals. The southern part of this barrier island is a protected national seashore, boasting pristine beach and dune environments that provide a haven for indigenous wildlife. On a good day, you might spot brown pelicans, blue herons, and white ibis, while the reserve is also home to a colony of endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtles. The adjacent Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge protects mammals such as rare wild cats and the Texas ocelot, and runs restoration programs to preserve the unique vegetation of this unspoiled wetland.
