SPID – S. Padre Island Drive – Corpus Christi

posted in: Corpus Christi, Local | 0



South Padre Island Drive…or as we call it “S-P-I-D” is the only road on and off of Mustang Island, via the JFK Causeway Bridge.

It extends from the Padre Island National Seashore, through North Padre Island, over the Bridge, through Flour Bluff and into Corpus Christi and the Selena Museum.

The majority of Corpus’ retail and dining can be found along SPID (Texas 358), mainly located on 3 exits: Airline Road, Staples Street and  Everhart Road. There are two malls; La Palmera and Sunrise.

It is usually a faster route to downtown Corpus Christi for trips to the Texas State Aquarium and The USS Lexington.

Along the way, you’ll find the usual big-box stores and national chain restaurants as well. And for rainy days you can catch a movie at the Century 16 and Imax.

Our closest hospital, Corpus Christi Medical Center, Bay Area is located at the Robbs Field Road exit.

Flour Bluff has many conveniences for your stay on the island including:

  • HEB Plus – Groceries
  • Walmart
  • Funtrackers Family Fun Center
  • Paul’s Seafood
  • Fast Food
  • Pizza
