If you have ever wished you were retired but know it will be many years away for you or  If you are retired and are looking for a place to spend time during a warm winter...

Don't look to much further than Corpus Christi and/or Rockport, Texas and surrounding areas...  Which one's for me?  Well, That's what I'm here to help you decide.

The surrounding areas are all water/beach centered...however;if you like the party scene, chain restaurants and want to be involved in many different community groups, I would suggest Corpus Christi. Although not a HUGE city, there is most definitely not a lack of things to do and with a little search I am sure you will find something of interest to get involved with.

The Corpus Christi calender is usually full year roundand alot of the activities are free (which is best of all if your on a budget).  These range from a "movie in the park" which is usually in the summer months at Cole Park, located on Ocean drive, right on the bay.  You bring your own popcorn, a blanket or lounge chair, and park yourself right there on the ground and enjoy the movie by yourself or with a special friend. 

 

 

There are also many cultural celebrations in Corpus Christi throughout the year. In fact, this past weekend we celebrated the Greek fest.  Unfortunately; I missed it this year but have attended in the past and had a blast!  It gives different cultures a time to showcase their signature foods, dances and music. It is a great place to mix, mingle and have a great time.  Also; it is very family friendly for those with children.  

If you have time stop in at the Texas State aquarium...

 

If you are more a home body, like a quieter small town that even on the most stressful of days people seem slow and easy....

Rockport, Texas is the place to be. There is not a lack of things to do. The city park and rec center offers miles of walk/bike trails, tennis courts, basketball court and a softball field.

There is also a very nice beach park that has many amenities including a bird watching tower, for you bird watchers out there.  There are many species (as it is also a sanctuary and nesting area) throughout the year. 

For the kiddos there is a safe beach, almost like a shallow swimming pool with sand!  This is my pretend retirement get away.  LOL.  Always feel very re-newed even after a one day visit. 

Please feel free to contact me for additional information on Real Estate in any of the Corpus Christi and surrounding areas. I would be glad to help or put you in touch with someone who can! Mention this blog post to receive a free One year home warranty should you decide to sell or purchase in the area!

This is the ferry landing in Port Aransas.....

Tiffany , thanks for the mini-vacation and tour of beautiful Corpus Christi ... Wow.

We will have to put it on our future trip list and who knows have a closer look at the real estate acquisition.

Cheers

Tiffany: Haven't been to CC in a number of years, need to put that on our list of things to do. We do visit Port-A and Rockport often and find many great activities to do and places to visit. We enjoy riding the ferry comng and going at Port A and oh the great seafood. Thanks for the tour.
