ignore all comments and data is very inaccurate - 2/26/2019
ignore all comments. There 1 teacher and 30 students per class or 28. I have not run into any drugs or drug addicts in my life. I would suggest stick to good restaurants and places not the not well known restaurants you might get sick or something. Read More

Why Brownsville?? - 7/25/2008
I'm often asked "Why Brownsville?" since I'm well traveled and have experienced South America, Europe, East Coast and West Coast. Then know allot of the credit for my decision has to go to my real estate agent Robert Avilar, who made time to introduce me and my brother to what I believe is the Best Kept Secret in the world. Brownsville has history, it has culture, it has diversity, it has beauty, it has beaches, it has Mexico, it has Fantastic Food, its economically fantastic and most importantly Brownsville has wonderful wonderful people, where respect is a priority.
Yes all good things have a downside, so here it is......Drive Very Defensively, and property taxes can be Very High and incomprehensable, should I learn more, I'll be glad to share.

I lived in Brownsville 19 years - 2/10/2008
It was a terrible place to live. Everyone I knew did drugs-smart people, dumb people, rich people, etc. Most people have at least one relative that is in prison because of this horrible problem in our city.

You MUST speak Spanish or will be ostracized. I knew Spanish so I didn't have to go through that whole ordeal.

Businesses are not run like American Businesses are. Brownsville is Mexico. Expect serious corruption in the schools, Police dept, lawyers, and the list goes on.

All of the schools have a high drop out rate, low test scores, and under qualified teachers. The average 18 year old makes a 820 on the SAT and about 10% go to college.

I'm actively moving to Brownsville from the East C - 5/14/2007
I've traveled most of my life, and currently live on the East Coast close to Washington D.C.
I've chosen Brownsville as a place I want to live after my first visit, two years ago. The people have stolen my heart, then you have the many other ammenities to enhance the overall experience....economy, weather, beaches, fishing, hunting, and lovely Mexico.
I'm currently purchasing a home, and will relocate permanantly in 2008 if the good lords willing and my patients will allow me to hold out that long.
Brownsville is a Great Place to Retire and enjoy REAL LIVING vs Life....

Brownsville living conditions... - 8/7/2006
You will find your major consumer stores here such as: Walmart, Sams, Academy, Best Buy, Circuit City, Target and the like. There are plenty of subdivisions going in for people of almost any income level. Brownsville has its north side where the Mall and Movie's are, the downtown side where the college and old town is along the border. South Padre Island is about 25 minutes away. You can find minor league hockey and baseball within an hour or so drive. The population is about 95% Hispanic and spanish is a nice language to be able to speak. Its sunny 90% of the time with a steady breeze. If you like heat and mild humidity (compared to the East Coast) Brownsville may be the place for you. Its an adjustment from the hustle and bustle of the East Coast, because everything is "Manaña." (Tomorrow) Just remember that it is a days drive just to get out of Texas from here.
