need locals & visitor help for corpus Christi Va-K

any helpful tips like tourist traps maybe we should avoid...we are all about "one the cheap" we love the wildlife aspect birds turtles etc....and any local favorite restaurants

Our family 2 adults & 3 kiddos ranging from 9-13 will be in corpus Monday June 19...I have spent countless hours searching the net and I feel i like know nothing more than when I started, i have read message boards stating that the bay area is pretty dirty and the ppl wouldn't recommend that as a beach here are my q's

we have 2 free nights in a motel 6 we thought we would use those for mon & tues(and just get acclamated to the area) could you tell me about the location far from the water,dining,shopping anything cool nearby etc.

also we have heard about camping on n padre island any advice you can give good or bad on that...

when we check out of motel 6 and start looking for a new motel we really want to be able to wake up and walk out to the beach we dont have to be in corpus proper can you recommend some budget/ecconomical lodging choices for us?

any restaurants that have weekday specials like kids eat free or a reduced child plate rate during week that you may know of?
we were thinking of taking the 2 1/2 -3 hr drive down to south padre one day anything we should know about the border? we thought it might be fun for the kids to expierence another part of the beach.

we really just want them to see the beach on a sandy clean shoreline any help or tips or pointers are so appreciated.
Thankls again
