NORTH BEACH NEIGHBORHOODS
Basking in the coastal breeze of the Corpus Christi Bay and framed by the iconic Harbor Bridge, the North Beach neighborhood is the epitome of “urban coastal.” Just over the bridge from downtown Corpus Christi, this neighborhood is removed from the hustle and bustle of the city while still enjoying quick access to downtown venues and attractions. North Beach is itself home to the U.S.S. Lexington Aircraft Carrier Museum and the Texas State Aquarium, two of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. As a beach neighborhood, most restaurants are casual and focus on fresh, locally caught seafood.
North Beach is the quieter alternative to downtown living. The median home price in North Beach is around $190k, and the real estate consists mostly of high-rise condos and apartments and single-family homes. The majority of residences were built in the late 1900s (70s-80s), so they are established but not old. Residents enjoy walkability and bikeability, not to mention unbeatable views of the city, beach, and bay.
Most residents commute into the city (a ten to thirty minute drive) while some cross the Nueces Bay Causeway to work in Portland. Students in North Beach attend schools in the Corpus Christi Independent School District.
