CORPUS CHRISTI - The South Texas coast serves as a popular Spring Break destination year after year.

However, after Port Aransas was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, business owners near the Corpus Christi Bayfront say they are expecting an increase in foot traffic in this area.

"I think this part of the coast is going to absorb more with some of the other destinations being offline, so we're doing some fun stuff down here," Richard Lomax said. 

Many universities, including Texas A&M Corpus Christi will be out of the classroom March 12th through March 16th. Officials at the Downtown Management District say they have planned accordingly. 

"Downtown is historically frequented by college students, so we're excited to have some new business ventures open so that college students can experience Corpus Christi like they have in the past," Alyssa Barrera said.

KRIS 6 News requested a full report of local hotel booking and vacancies during Spring Break. That data is expected to be released later this week. Officials at the Convention and Visitor's Bureau did note an increase in bookings within Corpus Christi during the Spring Break holiday.
