Where is Corpus Christi, America?

As we mentioned earlier, Corpus Christi is located in Texas. The North American state has other cities with curious names, such as the popular “Paris,” whose name was even made into a movie. The classic “Paris, Texas,” from 1984, doesn’t show the city, but mentions it, leaving the location prominently in the script.

But, returning to Corpus Christi, the city is located in the southeastern part of the North American state on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Corpus Christi is known for its beaches, harbors and maritime activities. Additionally, the city is home to several tourist attractions, including the USS Lexington, a World War II aircraft carrier-turned-museum, and the Texas State Aquarium.
