There is a diverse and friendly atmosphere here in the coastal bend. Because the warm tropical climate makes it enjoyable to pursue outdoor activities such as boating, fishing,birding, wind surfing, we are a Mecca for all ages and ethnicities. Excellent restaurants and The Art Center and museums offer something for all ages.

The activities open to the seniors in this mid size town is very limited. I have often found it difficult to understand why this is. Corpus Christi is a beautiful mid size town that has many seniors with poor city services at their Senior Centers. Very little availability for transportation.
