Videos of downtown Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – With the help of Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajardo, a series of videos highlighting improvements in downtown are reaching social media. The videos are called “Discover Downtown”.

“This is what makes your city center so exciting that you can come here and say you have that as an option,” said Guajardo.

It is an attempt to show the intensive revitalization efforts of the last few years.

Alyssa Barrera-Mason, the city’s Downtown Management District director, says, “Our food scene, our creative scene, our retail scene, what we do to beautify downtown and what we do on our waterfront.”

She suggests the area is recovering from decades of neglect, decline, and even the pandemic.

“Maybe you came downtown a long time ago, didn’t see much to do, but we want to share with you the things we have,” said Barrera-Mason.

The mayor took the lead in the videos by speaking to business owners and workers.
