Just one exit away at Arline Drive, Sunrise Mall was at one time THE shopping destination for residents and visitors alike. The mall has seen better days but still retains some of its old glory as home to Burlington Coat Factory, Sears, and Wilcox Furniture. It is worth the visit for historical reasons as well. It was the location for the filming of “The Legend of Billy Jean.” If you want to get in extra exercise during your visit, Planet Fitness is also a tenant.
Moore Plaza is a strip mall on steroids. A multitude of decisions on where to eat next line the frontage road of South Padre Island Drive, where the mall is located. You’ll find Twin Peaks, TGI Fridays, Jamba Juice, Taiwan Restaurant, Kanto Filipino Barbecue, Nothing Bundt Cakes, and more.

Texas is filled to the brim with history, and Texans understand the value of honoring that history with well-tended artifacts. Antique shopping is a joy at shops such as Sinton Antique Mall, which is just 28 miles outside of Corpus Christi and features stores with the best antiques dealers in the region.
