There isn't a lot going on in this town and wishing that we hadn't booked a week on unreliable information from the tourist bureau. They make it look super clean and beautiful, but it isn't for the most part. I didn't expect to have to know spanish/mexican to order a meal in the hub of downtown, a big shock in an American city. The have many shops that sell the same "imports" from across the border but at a higher price. There are several malls, and these are pretty much the typical American experience, with a big language barrier. I'm not sure how this town rated as high as it did, similar to Plano, Tx - which is incredibly clean and ranks 33/100 on the crime index compared to 9/100, for Laredo, on the same index - with 9/100 being worse for crime. Very disappointing visit.
