Located near the southernmost tip of Texas, Brownsville provides a ton of things to do that can’t be enjoyed anywhere else. Residents and visitors alike can take advantage of all that Brownsville has to offer, from spirited landmarks to beautiful local wildlife. Here are a few things to do in Brownsville that we recommend.
- Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site: This National Historical Park preserves the battlefield from the Battle of Palo Alto, which took place on May 8, 1846. This battle was the first major conflict in the Mexican-American War. Visit the park to learn more about this oft-overlooked war in American history.
- Sabal Palm Sanctuary: The Sabal Palm Sanctuary is a 527-acre area that protects one of the most biodiverse habitats in the county. It contains some of the last remnants of America’s Sabal Palm forest and protects a variety of endangered species. The Sanctuary is home to the historic Rabb Plantation House, which now serves as the Sanctuary’s headquarters.
- Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge: Sitting just north of Brownsville and stretching along the Gulf Coast is the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge holds remarkably diverse habitats, including wetlands, prairies, and beaches. For an educational day of wildlife watching and sightseeing, head here.
