CC Bucketlist

A Corpus Christi local exploring the best CC,TX has to offer in food, drinks, shopping, & fun!

Hola! My name is Monica and my journey to starting the #ccbucketlist began the summer of 2019. It started as a way to explore my hometown and support small business!

What started as a summer #staycation turned into a year long escapade! I fell in love visiting new places, trying new foods,and checking off all the unique murals throughout the city. It took on a life of its own with much support from family and friends ! In 2020, I started the CCBucketlist to share my adventures with locals, visitors, and those looking to visit our beautiful city.

I love my CC and I hope you come to love it too! Check out my highlights to see some of my favorite foods, drinks, desserts, shopping, outdoor outings, & must see murals! Thanks for following along.

DM or email for collaboration opportunities!
