Local Snowbird Community
Snowbirds from all over make their way down to the Gulf Coast Capital every year. So much so that they’ve earned the nickname “Winter Texans” in our state. And with mild temps and sunshine year-round, it’s easy to see why Corpus Christi is a popular escape during the winter months.
Here, snowbirds can enjoy world-class birding, fishing, hunting, and boating thanks to easy access to nature in every part of the city. Whether it’s a hunting excursion at King Ranch, a kayaking tour of the Laguna Madre, golfing on the Gulf, or a bird-watching meetup at a local park, Corpus Christi is a snowbird’s outdoor playground. If you’re looking for places to meet your fellow snowbirds, you’ll often find them at birding hotspots like Hazel Bazemore Park, camping at Padre Island National Seashore, or fishing at the new Cole Park Pier.
And beyond the beach and outdoor activities, Corpus Christi is also a cultural hub for art, festivals, and music. Don’t miss out on the Texas Jazz Festival in October and the Birdiest Festival in America in April.
And while you’re here, you can’t miss out on authentic Tex-Mex plates and fresh seafood platters on the patio.
If you’re looking for more ways to explore Tex-Mex culture, coast your way over to the Corpus Christi Trade Center. Here, you could easily spend an entire day shopping for imported goods, food, drinks, clothes, and more. Another unique shopping opportunity is First Friday’s ArtWalk in Downtown Corpus Christi. On the first Friday of the month, art and music take over the streets and turns downtown into a unique outdoor market.
So, whether it’s embracing the outdoors, enjoying local cuisine, or exploring South Texas culture, snowbirds will find many ways to coast through the city and enjoy a variety of activities that are unique to Corpus Christi.
