Corpus Christi, Texas (November, 2009)

As our one last chance at some warm weather for the year we headed down from Houston to Corpus Christi for basically a 2-day trip.  We left at a decent time Sunday morning and though it doesn't look it on the map it just takes forever to get to Corpus.   It took us something like 4 hours to get there!

Corpus Christi is interesting.  There's not secret that the oil and gas industry drives it's economy and while it isn't loaded with tourist destinations there are a few things to do.

We found a nice suite at the Residence Inn along Highway 358 heading toward the coast.  It was a nice hotel and a great 2 bedroom setup, I'd certainly recommend it.
