Deep in the heart of Texas, you'll find a city with charm, warmth, golden beaches, and incredible Tex-Mex food. Brownsville is Texas's southernmost city, serving as a gateway to Mexico and a vacation destination for the rest of the Lone Star State. This area is famous for its bird watching, bargain shopping, and breathtaking ocean views. With its palm trees and blooming tropical flowers, Brownsville feels exotic and luxurious, even in the depths of winter.
It's no wonder so many Winter Texans choose to call Brownsville home. This stunning area enjoys 230 days of sun every year, and its winter temperatures are warm enough for year-round gardening. You may even find citrus and avocado trees in your campground. Summertime average highs are in the 90s, while winter highs are around 70 degrees. Plan to carry a light sweater or jacket if you're going out during the morning or evening in winter. Otherwise, dress for the heat!
If this is your first visit to Brownsville, you can get a sense of the city's past by following the Brownsville Heritage Trail. On this walking tour, you'll see turn-of-the-century homes and businesses in the historic downtown area, including the original 3,000-acre townsite (now downtown Brownsville). Be sure not to miss the 1849 Immaculate Conception Cathedral.
The Rio Grande River area of South Texas is famous for its bird watching. The warm temperatures draw winter residents from the north, while summer brings southern migratory birds. The area offers a number of excellent birding centers and bird watching areas.
