Laredo – Living on the Edge of Texas
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. For more information, check out visitlaredo.com
