Summer 2022 is a drawing to a close, and it seems that everyone on social media as well as all the major retailers has shifted to fall mode. Starbucks has already rolled out its famed Pumpkin Spice Latte, store shelves are lined with cozy sweatshirts, and little reminders that Halloween is a mere two months away are popping up everywhere. Although we may not need to pack away our shorts just yet (this is Texas, after all!), if you’re ready for the cooler weather that autumn welcomes, well, get ready for some fall fun!
Corpus Christi, the bayside city on the Gulf of Mexico, is a fantastic summertime destination for travelers looking to soak up some sunshine at area beaches. However, this city offers just as much fun in the cooler months as it does in the warmer ones. From beer festivals to pumpkin festivals and everything in between, Corpus Christi is a town budding with opportunities for you to soak up the fun and South Texas sun year-round. If you’re planning a getaway in Texas this fall, you won’t want to miss these fun fall festivals on the coast!
