Ah, the sparkling city by the bay! Corpus Christi is an up-and-coming city along the Gulf Coast with lots of promising things to do with family and friends. In this Girls Getaway Guide To Corpus Christi, Texas, I'll outline my go-to itinerary when I have friends visiting in town.

Where To Eat

Time to fuel up for a day of adventure around the coast! Whether your first stop is for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – I’ve got you covered.

BKK – Thai Kitchen & Bar

Delicious Thai food and gorgeous interiors? What more could you ask for! BKK is perfect for lunch or dinner and situated in Lamar Park, which is a hop, skip, and jump away from Ocean Drive.

The Post

The Post at Lamar Park is the perfect brunch spot! It’s also located in Lamar Park so you can walk the bay front afterwards or hop around to other restaurants for drinks or snacks. BKK and Yola’s are both located in this area!

Island Joe’s

Stop by Island Joe’s on the way to Whitecap beach or JP Luby park for some coffee and a cucumber toast (my favorite!). Island Joe’s is a cute coffee shop on the island made out of shipping containers.

Bellinos

Owned and operated by Francesco Inguaggiato and his family, Belliono’s is a delicious Italian restaurant in The Village Shopping Center. They opened a pinsaria, serving light and airy pinsa’s having you feel like you’re right in Sicily!

Where To Drink

BUS (Bar Under the Sun)

Bar Under the Sun is an adorable bar with beautiful interiors. It is located on a cute street with lights and you can hop to The Goldfish and Rockets also. They usually have live music as well!

Tannins

Tannins brings Tuscany to the heart of the Coastal Bend. Vines, soft lights, and plenty of outdoor seating, Tannins is an adorable wine bar in the Village Shopping Center. They offer build-your-own charcuterie boards and have more wine options than you can count! If you haven’t had enough of Italy, walk over to Bellinos for authentic Italian cuisine. 

The Goldfish

A quaint boutique bar delicately decorated with mirrors, dangly lights, succulents, and brick accent walls. The Goldfish Bar is located near BUS and Rockets which are other great places to grab drinks with your girlfriends.

Yolas

Yolas is a must-do for drinks in Corpus Christi! As an upscale Mexican restaurant, the interior is absolutely stunning. I’d go just for the aesthetics! I recommend coming here for a fun cocktail and snack at the bar then popping to another place in Lamar park for dinner.

What To Do

Whitecap Beach

Drive out to the Island and head to Whitecap Beach for some much needed R&R near the beach. There are plenty of beaches to visit aside from Whitecap including Bob Hall Pier (a great surf spot!) and JP Luby Park. 

Pretty Picnics CC

Pretty Picnics offer luxury picnic experiences in Corpus Christi and it is a must-do for a girls weekend! They offer a variety of location options, color palette choices, and add-ons like giant four square or customized cakes. My favorite location is White Cap beach because who wouldn’t want to have a gorgeous picnic on the beach at sunset! 

Waterdog CC

My favorite find in the Coastal Bend thus far is Waterdog CC! They offer stand-up paddle board yoga classes, vinyasa yoga, and beach barre (my favorite). Waterdog operates in a variety of locations around Corpus Christi so find one that is closest to you and give it a go!

Where To Stay

Cinnamon Shore in Port Aransas

Cinnamon Shore is by far my absolute favorite place to stay in Corpus Christi! My family has been going here for the past five years and each year it gets more and more special. They recently added Coffee Waves and Dylan’s Pizzeria to the beachfront community. With two pools, on-site gyms, restaurants, coffee shops, and direct access to the beach, there is no better place to stay when visiting the Coastal Bend.

Omni Corpus Christi

The Omni is a great bayfront option if you prefer to stay closer to the Bayfront and downtown Corpus Christi. Cinnamon Shore is a great option but quite far from the rest of things since you’re out on the island.
