Tbh there’s a lot more to Brownsville than just downtown, there’s so many suburban places that are nice and safe
Also one of the reasons that Brownsville criminal record is so low it’s for the portal potro
Just a note of caution…be very careful traveling further into Matamoros! It is not the place it was many years ago…much more dangerous to be that far into the city!
I’m going to travel all the valley of Texas and go from pogreso Mexico to Mexico city and then Morelos for a 3 week vacation I’m sure I will enjoy I’m in need of a megga vacation
Great video! I’m a realtor at the McAllen Metro!
You were in downtown in the begining ..
That’s not the Full City
I can’t believe you and the wife don’t weigh 300 pounds apiece as good as you eat!
Keep them big company out we dont want texas becoming like California
Are you still in the US 🤯
everyone sad about brownsville but left it in the dust. Should have stayed and helped keep it alive.
Port Isabel cafe is my favorite they have good breakfast and lunch very delicious 😋.staff are so friendly..we used to live in Brownsville Texas but we decided to move to Fort Worth TX (job) an also oyster bar in downtown they been there for a long time very delicious n friendly…ok of course the beach beautiful and going walking shopping etc….. Love
Whenever I think of Matamoros I think of drug running, prostitution and the kidnapping and occult ritual sacrificing of Mark Kilroy. That’s probably the same with many other people. When dark subjects are what first come to mind when people think of your town, your town has a serious image problem.
I mean no disrespect nor am I trolling but it’s amazing to me, out of all the US/Mexico border city areas, the stark contrast between San Diego/Tijuana and everything else. For as much criticism of California as one hears in Texas, Brownsville’s economy should be booming to make it one the top most desirable and thus expensive places to live!
Went to the zoo one time in Brownsville the poor animals didn’t have water and it was hot. Ended up giving a parrot some of my water. That place is scumville.
I also used to live in Brownsville, and I am shocked at the way it looks now. It almost looks like a ghost town. On Saturdays we used to go downtown and do shopping and now it looks like most of the buildings are closed and not even kept up. what a shame!! The brown building that has the ETSG letters used to be the JC Penney.
You were in downtown Brownsville right before you went into Matamoros. There are some excellent restaurants downtown and the UTRGV/TSC campus is beautiful. It’s the old Fort Brown. Next time in Matamoros take a taxi and go into downtown (La Plaza Principal) it’s a ways from the bridge. Terra’s is an awesome restaurant in downtown Brownsville.
Did you know that in Matamoros is one of the only city’s in Mexico that shares a border with texas
24:56 My dude!? You just left downtown Brownsville. The border area is downtown. The is the oldest part of the city. You are now going uptown. And that area you claim based on the map, is now downtown. That just a older shopping center. Not to far from the zoo.
Seeing you show the paths downtown through where I always pass is so exciting NGL. I also go to Matamoros every single weekend, since I’m originally from there, and seeing you also go is nice. Thank you ❤.
looks like ur on Elisabeth street
There’s prostitution in that street by the colonial hotel well maybe not anymore its been a while
Depressing. Sorry, just seems the area is a bit neglected and no one wants to be there.
Wow looks bad I grew up there back the 50th and 60 it was beautiful downtown every weekend we would go downtown to shop left Brownville in the 80s
Here is Hassan, I crossed the international bridge from Laredo TX in 2012. Same experience they did not ask for ID or passport. We just crossed to enter the states by different visa. There is nostalgia. Hassan from Saudi Arabia watching and appreciate your work
Please, be careful if you ever go again to Matamoros or any of the RGV border mexican cities. Cartel and crimes are still going on. Shooting, kidnapping etc… You have to be vigilant. What you saw in Matamoros is just what the war of all cartels and the danger at the border. People closed businesses for that same reasons. If you see pharmacy and dental offices because many who live in Brownsville go for there medications. Many are scared traveling inside Matamoros to go get medicines or go to any doctor. Many still travel to Matamoros because they have relatives that they go visit. Yes, 37 years ago it was beautiful. The food, energy, have fun, clubs, restaurants, the people, and so on. It was a beautiful place to go just across the border and enjoy life. Now it’s sad. No business or people walking around. Whenever you least expect it, you can have a war with cartels and the soldiers you saw in the entry. They are not there for fun, so please be careful when you travel to Mexico. God bless you in your travels. P.S. Brownsville is safe and awesome. No danger as many people think. I have many family and friends that live there.
I love McAllen Texas And Reynosa Mexico 🇲🇽
I lived here all my life. You always choose to show the town at it’s worst. Brownsville has beautiful homes in very nice neighborhoods. Every town has it’s ugly side but every town has it’s beautiful side. Focus on the beautiful side
12:01 Lol The camera was panned the the to the left shop window w/ the Rutledge merch. But it’s funny because Rutledge Hamburgers is actually the the alleyway to the right of that building. You can see the small red door at this point.
A lot of people go to Mexico due to not having health insurance or the option of more accessible and cheaper mor effective medication that can be more expensive in the U.S.
Knew people who would go to Mexico for dental work. Not this city though.
This is what happens when you let illegals come in the country
Thank you for showing your video of my town I was born in, has not been there in a lot of yrs.but at 81 yrs old still remember my town. now I live in Phoenix
You were downtown Brownsville at the start of this video. 25:56 is just a shopping plaza.

At 11:00, very close to the Sportman’s Bar where draft beer is $1.00!! Stop there every time I’m going to Matamoros…
