Corpus Christi and surrounds for two days in early July

I will be in San Antonio in early July and have two days for sightseeing. Thinking of spending it in Corpus Christi. Will be renting a car at San Antonio airport and flying out of there.

Any comments. Should I move outside of CC ?. What medium priced hotels are worth checking out ? Thanks

If you get a chance, Rockport, about 30 miles north of Corpus Christi, is a very nice area. It is a small community with an art center and some unusual shops. Rockport's big draw is its access to the water....there is fishing, boating, bird watching, etc. Its beach is family friendly and great for small children....the water stays shallow for quite a long way into the bay and was "resanded" just a few years ago. It has picnic areas, showers and restrooms. We don't have any national chain restaurants - other than fast food -so all of the places to eat in town are locally owned and unique ...just wish there were more of them. The population is normally around 17,000, but the 4th of July week is our busiest time. If you plan to stay in Rockport in early July, you will need to book a room very soon. There are several hotels in the area...here is a link to many of them - see bottom of posting. The Hampton Inn is new and quite nice, the Holiday Inn overlooks the ski basin, and the Lighthouse and Inn at Fulton Harbor are on the beach road near the marina. I don't know your age or interest, but if you are young and looking for nightclubs and more nightlife, Corpus Christi is really where you want to stay. If you are a sportsman or bringing your family with you, you will quite like Rockport. We have lived there for about 15 years and we love it.

Hope you have a great stay in South Texas!
