The city has great facilities for visitors with numerous excellent restaurants serving international food as well as the traditional Tex-Mex fare.

Brownsville Info

Brownsville South Padre is a historic airport found near Brownsville in Texas. In 1929 Charles Lindbergh landed at the airport nearly 40 minutes after taking off from Mexico proving the viability of the route for postal services between the two countries. The now-defunct Pan Am began passenger services the same year from the airport to destinations across the south and in the Second World War it was an important USAAF base. Today it is a thriving regional airport with flights to Dallas and Houston as well as the historic international route to Mexico
