Corpus Christi Apartments for Rent
Corpus Christi, TexasCorpus Christi, Texas, a coastal city, is the county seat of Nueces County. It is part of the region known as South Texas.

The city is often referred to as "The Sparkling City by the Sea," particularly in literature promoting tourism. Locals and natives often just call it Corpus.
Living in and Renting an Apartment in Corpus ChristiVarious sections of Corpus Christi maintain distinct senses of identity and community from the city proper, especially the Calallen and Flour Bluff areas, and, less prominently, Clarkwood and Annaville. These areas are sometimes mistakenly believed to be separate municipalities. Apartments for rent in these areas are affordable.
Since Corpus Christi is situated right on the Gulf of Mexico, outdoor sports are a natural activity for residents. Fishing, hunting and water sports are favorite activities of residents and visitors.
Corpus Christi is home to a number of popular destinations for both tourists and residents. In the southeast part of the city, near the Pharaoh Valley subdivision is the Hans A. Suter Wildlife Area. It is on the western shore of the Cayo del Oso and is considered to be one of the best sea bird watching areas in the world.
The nearby Pharaohs golf course also serves as a haven for migratory birds. Some of the most visited attractions are probably on North Beach, where the Texas State Aquarium and the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay are located. Nearby is Corpus Christi's museum district. Located there are the Museum of Asian Cultures, Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History, the South Texas Museum of Art, and the Harbor Playhouse theatre, one of the oldest continually operating community theatres in the State. Heritage Park is also in the museum district, where a number of older restored houses can be found. The downtown area, of which the museum district is a part, is home to skyscrapers, companies, various shops, a very popular center of marinas, and Mirador de la Flor. Also in the city is the Corpus Christi Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.
Directly east of Corpus Christi are Padre Island and Mustang Island, home to various municipal, state, and national parks, most notably Padre Island National Seashore. The city is also near King Ranch, one of the world's largest ranches, upon which the movie Giant was based.
