Looking at visiting the Gulf Coast in April and wondering what the main differences are between Corpus Christi and Galveston. Want to find a waterfront place with a balcony. Enjoy nature, hiking, walks on the beach. Prefer quiet vs. crazy (i.e. drunken spring break) atmosphere. Enjoy shops and restaurants, but mainly want to visit for the beautiful waterfront, sitting on the beach, seeing the sights. What are the main differences between Corpus Christi and Galveston? Opinions are welcome, however subjective!
