I'm not sure if your asking about Central City Colorado, or Central City Nebraska. But, I can tell you living on North Padre Island is great. We have great schools and miles of natural beach for fun and exploring. If you post which State your looking at moving to, you will get plenty of answers from the local Real Estate professionals who live and serve these cities.
If you ever decide to move to Corpus Christi or if you know someone moving this way, I always appreciate referrals.
Best of luck on your move. Have a fantastic Easter Holiday!
