A History of North Beach

From the 1930's Through the 1950's North Beach, Also Known As Rincon Point,

was a Bustling Seaside Haven for Locals and Tourists Alike. Located on the Far North End of the City, the Area Was Home to a Sprawling and Vibrant Mix of Curio and Souvenir Shops, Tattoo Parlors, Fashionable Homes and Hotels, a Saltwater Pool, a Boardwalk and Pleasure Pier, and a Number of Thrill Rides Including a Ferris Wheel and a Beachside Roller Coaster. Many Coastal Bend Locals Have Fond Memories of Visiting the Area in Their Youth. Indeed, in Those Days North Beach was a Veritable "Coney Island" of the Gulf Coast, and Played Host to Scores of Tourists, Locals, and Even Visiting Sailors, All Who Took in Countless Sunny Afternoons Strolling Along It's Shores.

While North Beach was the Victim of Two Major Hurricanes, First the "Great Hurricane" of 1919 (Called Such Because the Practice of Naming Hurricanes Did Not Begin Until 1953) and Then Hurricane Celia in 1970, the Decline of the Area that Began in the 1950's Did Not Take Place Because of a Natural Disaster, but Rather in Part with the Completion of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Causeway in 1950, Which Opened up Previously Inaccessible Gulf Shorelines, Drawing Visitors and Development Away from Downtown Corpus Christi.

North Beach Floundered Throughout the 1960's and 70's, and Many of It's Once-Thriving Attractions Were Torn Down or Closed. But, Beginning in the Late 1980's, the Area Began to See a Resurgence with the Opening of the Texas State Aquarium, followed by the U.S.S. Lexington Museum On the Bay in 1992, Which Would Become Two of the Largest Attractions in the Coastal Bend. In 2011, Property was Secured and the Construction of Fajitaville On the Beach Began, with a Vision of Returning Visitors and Locals to Historic North Beach. In 2013, the City of Corpus Christi Completed a 1.5 mile Concrete Beachwalk, Stretching the Length of North Beach. Finally, in 2015, a Beachside Ferris Wheel Was Reopened at Fajitaville On the Beach, the First in Over Half a Century.
