Welcome to Brownsville

During the rest of the 19th century, the fast-growing town was filled with ornate brick structures that drew their architectural inspiration from Mexico and New Orleans. Many survive today and help make Brownsville an atmospheric stop. Its authentic and slightly gritty culture make it excellent as a day trip from South Padre Island or a stop on a longer Rio Grande Valley itinerary.
