Brownsville is a semi-tropical paradise of stately palm trees, ever-blooming bougainvilleas, exotic birds, and warm Gulf breezes. Steeped in a rich South Texas heritage and located on the banks of the Rio Grande, Brownsville is a perfect two-nation leisure travel destination with Matamoros, Mexico, and two beautiful Gulf of Mexico beaches just steps away.
Brownsville has the rich heritage of two countries separated by the once mighty Rio Grande, but joined by hundreds of years of tradition and a history as big as Texas. Besides the city’s museums, you will find several historical sites such as the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site, which marks the start of the war between the U.S. and Mexico.
Brownsville also houses the internationally-known Gladys Porter Zoo, which has over 1,500 rare species. Other nature and ecotourism sites include the Sabal Palm Audubon Sanctuary and the Resacade la Palma State Park. Brownsville is a dynamic, bustling city with a great climate and lush landscape. It welcomes you with open arms offering contemporary fine arts, cultural festivals, shopping, golf courses, and other hospitality services. This year, do like the birds: Come, stay in Brownsville.
