Hello, We are Visit Corpus Christi.

Visit Corpus Christi is a 501c6 Destination Management Organization contracted by the city of Corpus Christi with a mission to strengthen our community by sharing Corpus Christi with the world. The organization is primarily funded through Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) paid by visitors while staying overnight in hotels and short-term rentals.

Visit Corpus Christi also has a non-profit foundation that supports the hospitality and tourism industry via education programs, raising and providing funding to individuals and businesses during times of need through the Visit CC Cares program.


Our Mission & Vision

Visit Corpus Christi's mission is to strengthen our community by sharing Corpus Christi with the world. Our vision is to become the Gulf Coast Capital for year-round experiences and events.


The Corpus Christi Brand Promise


In Corpus Christi, we coast our own way. 

From the city to the beach, the coast is more than our part of the state.  

Coasting... is our state of mind.  

We take our time and take what’s ours.  

We know who we are, and what we stand for.  

We do things differently and celebrate what makes us the same.  

This way of life is bigger than our beaches.  

We are  

the casually charming. 

the collectively cool. 

the creatively curious. 

We are the Gulf Coast Capital.
