Contrary to many outsiders’ beliefs, Texas is far more than just a desert landscape. In contrast, there are semi-tropical paradises of stately palm trees, exotic birds, ever-blooming bougainvilleas, and warm Gulf breezes. A center point of one of these paradises is Brownsville, Texas, the state’s southernmost city, with an international seaport and the largest city in the Rio Grande Valley. Truly an international city, Brownsville is rich in heritage separated by the once mighty Rio Grande, but still joined by years of history and tradition combined with exotic sounds and natural beauty that is unmatched by many U.S. destinations. Brownsville’s great historical significance is presented at two different and interesting museums. Recently designated a National Historic Site, Palo Alto Battlefield marks the start of the war between Mexico and the United States. Then there is the site of the last battle of the Civil War, Palmito Hill. For locations of these museums or others in Brownsville, check the Texas yellowpages.
Brownsville semi-tropical climate is the perfect setting for an abundance of recreational fun and activities. The areas culture can further come alive with the local festivals and events through the year. One of which being Charro Days, a four day festival featuring parades, carnivals, music, dancing, and great Tex-Mex food. With 230 days of sun each year, with winter temperatures being warm enough for year-round blooming tropical flowers, Brownsville feels exotic and luxurious regardless of the time of year. With the Sabal Palm Audubon Sanctuary along with the convergence of two major flyways, Brownsville is bird watcher’s paradise. There have been over 500 counted birds in the area.
