Perhaps because of Brownville's location near the tip of Texas and close to the Mexico border, you won't need to look very far to find some of the Lone Star State's avian magnets. And if you want to experience it all from one of Texas's pristine public beaches, head to the ten-mile khaki-colored beach of Boca Chica State Park, only 45 minutes' drive from Autumn Acres Mobile Home RV Resort. The beach is part of 1,000 acres of undeveloped coastal wetlands that's home to a flock of feathered residents like the piping plover, reddish egret, and the brown pelican. Pelagic birds like the Cory’s shearwater, the magnificent frigatebird, and the Leach’s storm-petrel also make regular appearances.For an easier walk on a more developed trail, set your sights on the Laguna Madre Nature Trail in South Padre Island, about the same distance when you camp in an RV near Brownsville. More than 300 species of birds fly by throughout the year, and the boardwalk is a convenient place to scope them out. There's also a viewing tower nearby if you wish to get a better view of the surrounding area.If you like your bird watching experience sprinkled with watchable mammalian wildlife, the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge near Harlingen beckons. Thousands of birds and elusive ocelots silently hunt within the sanctuary's brushlands and white-tailed deer munch among the foliage. Butterflies and moths also flutter through October and November, when more than 100 species of them are regularly documented here.
As the southernmost Texas city facing Mexico across the Rio Grande, Brownsville offers an enticing blend of Mexican and American ways of life that is as tangible as the colonial Spanish-style archways adorning the town's adobe-walled buildings. To get a taste of Mexican influence, book a campsite at Autumn Acres Mobile Home RV Park in February when the town comes alive during the "Charro Days Fiesta." Brownsville honors both countries coming together and celebrating bi-national friendship and respect for traditions. The fiesta is celebrated in a flurry of parades, "bailes," and costume balls featuring colorful "charro" and "Huipil" traditional garments.But any day of the year is a good day to book an RV rental in Cameron County to see the Mexican influence on Brownsville’s way of life. Make the Historic Brownsville Museum your first stop for a proper introduction to artifacts that illustrate the town's railroading past. At the Costumes of the Americas Museum, browse an exceptional collection of authentic North, Central, and South American indigenous clothing and accessories crafted through hand-worked beading, embroidery, weaving, and dyeing.Escape the downtown for a bit and find yourself strolling through lush gardens at the Gladys Porter Zoo, where 200 species of plants and 300 species of animals can be found. Some of the notable residents are Galapagos tortoises, orangutans, and African lions.Art lovers would find inspiration at the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art where works by Marc Chagall, N.C. Wyeth, and Alexander Calder, among others, may be viewed. Those keen on history shouldn’t pass up a visit to the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park. It preserves the site of a pivotal battle that changed the map of North America.So when you’re excited “to live the dream,” but not ready to leave the United States yet, stay at one of the RV parks in Brownsville to road-test your retirement plans.
What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
