On the southernmost tip of Texas, with stunning sunsets, a picture-perfect golden hour, the City of Brownsville sits on the Gulf Coast and the Rio Grande River, the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Warm and sunny days are plenty, along with the abundance of culture, savory food, and ice-cold drinks to beat the Texas heat.

Historic but full of new life, Brownsville’s Downtown is a perfect blend of history, culture, and entertainment. Whether you’re taking a historical walking tour, dancing at a music festival, or enjoying the nightlife, Downtown Brownsville draws visitors in. Within Downtown Brownsville’s Entertainment District you’ll find authentic style pizzas full of border flavor, unique upscale Mexican food, flowing drinks and the largest breakfast tacos you’ll ever see. As you walk through our Historic Downtown you’ll stumble upon music, friends and French architecture that will make your night memorable. 

Just a few streets down lies the Mitte Cultural District. An area full of unique and local attractions, parks, and museums, all nestled together. One memorable attraction is the Gladys Porter Zoo which sprawls over 30 acres, covering four areas of origin: Africa, Asia, Tropical America, and Indo-Australia in extensive indoor and outdoor exhibits.

And about 30 minutes outside of Brownsville, even more views await visitors. Lay in the sand and tan under the sun at Boca Chica, our very own pristine beach. Or visit SpaceX if you’re seeking thrills. Located near Boca Chica Beach, SpaceX visitors can catch a glimpse of launches and even capture the moment with star-worthy photography.

Stay, Dance, Eat, Drink— biking, beaching, birding, we have it all. Explore Brownsville and discover our city!
