Corpus-Christi is located on the southeast coast of Texas in Nueces County. It's the 8th most populous city in the state, with 312,195 residents as of the 2012 census estimate. The city is called the "Sparkling City by the Sea," in reference to its' sunny skies and blue ocean waters, lush tropical foliage and white sand beaches. Corpus Christi is home to the Port of Corpus Christi, which is the 5th largest port in the nation. A few of the many attractions in the city include the Texas Surf Museum, the Texas State Aquarium, the Corpus Christi Botanical Gardens and Nature Center, and the US Lexington Museum on Corpus Christi Bay. The "Museum District" in downtown Corpus Christi contains the Museum of Asian Cultures, the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History, the South Texas Institute for the Arts, and the Harbor Playhouse Theatre, one of the oldest continually operating community theatres in the state. Just east of the city are Padre Island and Mustang Island and miles of beautiful soft white-sand beaches. Corpus Christi also has one of the highest average wind speeds of any coastal city in the U.S., which makes it optimal for sports such as wind surfing, kite boarding, sailing and kite flying. The Environmental Protection Agency has designated Corpus Christi Bay as an estuary of "national significance." More than 234 species of fish are found in the bay, and due to the large amount of fish, it's also a birding paradise with duck, geese, and white-winged doves among the species of birds in the region. The city of Corpus Christi is also host to many special events, including the annual Buccaneer Days Carnival, which is usually held downtown.

The Southeast Gulf Coast of Texas has a humid subtropical climate. Tropical storms and hurricanes are common, and they strongly alter the climate of the region. This region is warm most of the year due to the currents of the Gulf of Mexico. Summers are very hot and humid. In winter, it can get cold if a strong front moves in, occasionally even causing snow. Most of the time, however, winters are very mild. Rain in the coastal region is more abundant than in the inland region. The wettest months of the year are April and May. Tornadoes can occur in this region, but less frequent than in other parts of the state.
