Vaca in Corpus Christi & San Antonio..

Hello, I'm hoping to visit TX with the family in late June. The teens need the beach so I thought we could fly into Austin (cheaper from Boston), drive to Corpus Christi and find a rental (saw something at Surfside Condos that looked nice)...stay for a few days and drive to San Antonio and stay there for a couple of days.

For the TX experts...does this sound doable? Anyone have an opinion of Surfside Condos? I was hoping to drive over to the National Seashore for a day (looks gorgeous)...

Any and all tips are welcomed! Thank you!!

Very doable. You might want to investigate Schliterbahn in New Braunfels for the teens.

Yes very doable. As another option check out Sandollar Sity Beach house in Port A (just next to CC). This property is right on the beach.

Just follow I35 south to San Antonio and pick up I37 to Corpus Christi. It's about a 3-3.5 hour drive. Can't help with your choice of accommodations but there are plenty to choose from. If you stay in Port A you are about 30 minutes from the National Seashore.
