Texas Coastal Bend
Ingleside, Texas - The Gateway to the Islands
Located 18 miles North of Corpus Christi, Ingleside, Texas, is in San Patricio County, which is experiencing unprecedented growth due to: the U.S. Navy’s choice of Ingleside as a Homeport; industry expansions; the increased popularity of "eco-tourism" such as the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail; the growing retirement community; and people relocating to raise their families in a community with a leisurely pace and abundant nature/waterway resources.
