The past review was pretty generic and extremely narrowed down to one point of view if you ask me.
Brownsville is a city in Texas where it is always sunny and beautiful yes there is a lot of Mexican people because it is a border town and because of the mexican people it has become the culture rich city that it is... If you visit during February brownsville hosts a charro days parade charro days is a day they celebrate the mixing of mexican and american people in one city because of it being a border town and they throw a huge festival and parade downtown full of people dressed in folkloric bright dresses to symbolize mexican culture in america. but it also is home to many americans there is poor rich and VERY rich people just like any other cities . But aside from that it has many restaurants to offer not just Mexican. There is a wonderful zoo to visit( not many small cities have zoos) You can visit the university of Texas at brownsville and you can even drive 15 min to south padre island ( rated top 5 spring break destinations) where there is a schlitterbahn water park and a TON of 5 star resorts and a gorgeous beach snorkeling fishing etc wonderful area to visit with kids and family . And YES EVERYONE SPEAKS ENGLISH i lived there for 20 years and never had a problem with language brownsville is not huge on nightlife because since a lot of the population is considered lower class not many people spend on that but they still offer a lot of bars a few night clubs and live music and coffee shops they also have a beautiful art museum right next to the zoo and a lot more. Overall a good place to visit. So yeah, brownsville can be called " a city to avoid " in the eyes of someone who was there for 2 weeks ( for work ) like the person that rated it before me but it's a city that has a lot to offer for a small city and deserves a lot more credit than that.
