Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Corpus Christi, Texas, named after the feast day honoring the Body of Christ, has a rich history dating back to the early 16th century when Spanish explorers first arrived in the area. The city’s location on the Gulf of Mexico made it a strategic port for trade and military activities, leading to its rapid growth and development. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Corpus Christi became a major hub for the oil and gas industry, boosting its economy and population. The city also played a significant role in naval history, serving as a training center for military personnel during World War II. Today, Corpus Christi is known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant arts scene, and diverse culture. It continues to thrive as a center for tourism, shipping, and energy production, attracting visitors and residents alike with its warm climate and coastal charm.
