Brownsville — both its climate and its people — is warm and welcoming, and it’s an ideal city to call home, whether as a young professional, a family starting out, or a retiree looking for an active lifestyle in a great climate.
With a population quickly approaching 200,000, Brownsville, Texas, is the largest city in the Rio Grande Valley. South Padre Island, a popular recreational spot, is minutes away, as is sister city Matamoros, just across the Rio Grande River in Mexico. The Brownsville-Matamoros area is a fusion of two cultures and languages that make this a unique place. Both cities are historically rich and passionate about the arts, culture and education.
