Looking for the perfect spot to snap your next photo? Whether you’re in need of a great location for your upcoming family portraits or you’re wanting to freshen up your Instagram feed with a few new shots, here’s a list of five spots in the Coastal Bend that make for the perfect backdrop.
Bayside Park – This Portland park is a great photo location merely for the variety of angles it provides. In one direction, you have a gorgeous view of the Corpus Christi Bay, while other angles allow for more of a dunes in the desert look. (108 Sabine Dr.)
Rockport Beach – A list of photo-worthy locations wouldn’t be complete without mention of a beach. While any of our sandy shores will do, Rockport Beach is topping this list. As one of only four Blue Wave Beaches along the Texas Gulf Coast, this spot is kept in pristine condition and the dried palm umbrella structures make for fun posing material.

Big Tree – Goose Island State Park – Nature always provides the perfect inspiration for snapping a photo. Be it family portraits, engagement photos or simply a new profile picture, the Big Tree at Goose Island State Park takes the cake. (1622 12th St, Rockport)
South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center – From nature trails and the stunning orchid greenhouse to a butterfly garden and tons of flora and fauna, every corner of this place makes for gorgeous photos. Bring the whole family and make a field trip out of it! You’ll have an educational experience and new family photos by the end of the day. (8545 S. Staples, St.)
Downtown Corpus Christi – With numerous murals, interesting architecture and aesthetically pleasing local shops, Downtown Corpus Christi is filled with unique photo-ops. Walk a few blocks over to the Peoples or Lawrence T-Heads if you’re looking for a more serene backdrop. (Corpus Christi, 78401)
