Make Corpus Christi your home base as you head out on the highway to explore the wide variety of communities around the Coastal Bend. From the delightful artist-colony vibe, historic landmarks, luxury homes and sport fishing of Rockport-Fulton and Goose Island State Park to the coastal cowboy kingdom of King Ranch (larger than the entire state of Rhode Island!) in Kingsville. Plus towns steeped in history, that made their names during the Texas Revolution, like Beeville, Goliad, Refugio and Alice. The area is as diverse as it is historic and can all be experienced as a day trip.
