Many things distinguish the 65,000 acres where Texas real estate begins from the other 106M that comprise this great state. Laredo is quite on the edge, located on mile marker 1 of Interstate Highway 35, on the southern U.S. border and at the beginning of a tourism experience that is as unique, as it is charming.
The streets of downtown Laredo will absorb you in a history lesson, with architecture and museums that tell the tales 261-years-in-the-making, from our Republic of the Rio Grande Museum to the 119-year old Washington’s Birthday Celebration and its museum, all found within Laredo’s establishing epi-center, the Villa de San Agustin Historic District. More stories are to be discovered in five other significant historic districts throughout an easy distance from Laredo’s iconic San Agustin Plaza. Refer to the history section of this guide to find them all!
In between food, history and hotels, there are so many options for activities to take in while you are here, that it may take multiple trips, so plan several trips to a place where cultural confluence is an outstanding example of modern-day living.
