You'll love Brownsville!

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, just steps away and two beautiful Gulf of Mexico beaches less than half an hour away. We're on the border, by the sea.

Brownsville, Texas is truly an international city located in a semi-tropical paradise where two cultures meet to create a unique land of exotic sounds, flavors, history and natural beauty found nowhere else in the U.S.

Visitor activities include tennis, fishing, nature viewing, shopping, golf and going to the beach. The relaxed Rio Grande Valley way of life plus the mystique of an exotic blend of language, flavors, and people will charm you and the longer you stay the more you'll love Brownsville.

Beach lovers can take their pick of two beautiful Gulf of Mexico beaches, both within 3o minutes driving time. The modern resort of South Padre Island has everything a family needs in the way of lodging and entertainment and the pristine Boca Chica Beach has nothing but miles of beautiful sandy beach.

Brownsville is a birdwatcher's paradise - some say the best birding in the U.S. The convergence of two major flyways afford the birder an abundance of Northern species migrating for the winter. The Audubon Society, owned and operated Sabal Palm Audubon Sanctuary, is a terrific birding spot. There have been over 500 counted bird species in our area.

The border culture comes alive with festivals and events throughout the year in Brownsville.

Golfers can choose from 6 different 18 hole golf courses. Each is beautiful and fun to play. All have lots of water, and tough greens that sit among the palms and mesquite trees.

Visit our On the Border, By the Sea community and enjoy sight-seeing and shopping in Mexico, gorgeous white sand beaches, world class birding, the world-famous Gladys Porter Zoo, great Brownsville museums and several important historic sites. It's worth the trip!
