Brownsville, Texas: Home to One of the Top-rated Zoos in the United States!

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008


It wasn’t my first choice.  It wasn’t even my second, third or fourth choice, but we are still bound for a place we’d never heard of before: Brownsville, Texas.


It’s a really nice place,” my travel advisor said.”  But I merely shook my head.


“Where the heck is Brownsville?  And why would anyone want to go there?” I asked.


“It’s right on the Gulf of Mexico just near South Padre Island,” she added.  “It’s a really pretty place with Spanish influence.  And the beaches are out of this world.”


“Yeah, but I’ve never even heard of Brownsville.  Never mind South Padre Island.”


“Trust me,” she said.  “The price is right, and you’ll love it.”


Yes, I never planned in my wildest dreams that I would be bound for Brownsville, Texas, but now I can hardly wait to get there.
