Corpus Christi is a coastal city in the South Texas region of Texas. The city’s population was estimated to be 316,381 in 2013, making it the eighth-most populous city in Texas.

Corpus Christi was founded in 1839 by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney as Kinney’s Trading Post, or Kinney’s Ranch. It was a small trading post that sold supplies to a Mexican revolutionary army camped about 25 mi. In July 1845, U.S. troops commanded by General Zachary Taylor set up camp there in preparation for war with Mexico, where they remained until March 1846. About a year later, the settlement was named Corpus Christi and was incorporated on 9 September 1852 (the city’s name Corpus Christi in Latin means Body of Christ).

Corpus Chrsti is home to several sports teams including: Corpus Christi Hooks (baseball), Corpus Christi IceRays (NAHL), Corpus Christi Fury (AIF), Corpus Christi Crabs (Rugby).

Texas State Highway 44 is a main thoroughfare that connects Corpus Christi to Laredo and the western part of South Texas by way of Interstate 69W/U.S. Highway 59, Interstate 35, and U.S. Highway 83. The inner-city public transportation is provided by Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority with its 28 bus routes. The city is accessed by two major bridges, the Harbor Bridge (US 181) and the John F. Kennedy Causeway (PR 22). Both bridges are maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation.
