What Bert Has To Say About Brownsville-Harlingen Metro Area

Located at the extreme southern tip of Texas and the continental U.S., Brownsville is a thriving border town and minor resort area mainly serving wintering Texans. It anchors the subtropical Lower Rio Grande Valley, a vast area spreading 60 miles west and 30 miles north, a business-friendly area clustered with small towns, agriculture, and commercial and manufacturing interests tied to Mexico and free trade status. Brownsville is a major trading center and “maquiladora” or border zone manufacturing center for U.S. companies and an international seaport. There are Gulf Coast beach areas about 20 miles east of town at the mouth of the Rio Grande, notably South Padre Island, a favorite winter and spring-break destination.
