"Great little place to visit especially in November"
I personally enjoy Corpus Christi. Corpus is great little place to visit especially in November, the weather is cooler and you have a nice breeze throughout the day. Corpus has quite a few things to do there, you can visit the USS Lexington Air Carrier Museum which is really amazing to tour. You can also visit the Texas State Aquarium which is right off the bay, while there you can watch the dolphin show or pet the rays and sand shark in the petting areas. They have quite a variety of mammals and sea life you can look at while visiting. There is also an Art Museum you can visit while there (which I will have to tour next time). Corpus isn't too far away from everything, if you're in Portland or Aransas Pass, Texas at the most its about a 20-25 minute drive which isn't too bad especially in Texas which the speed is about 70-80 MPH. Corpus also has plenty of boutique, antique shops and mall strips scattered about their town and you never know what little treasures you might find.
