Day Trip to Brownsville 🌮 (FULL EPISODE) S10 E6

Published

on

SUMMARY: The Rio Grande Valley in South Texas borders Mexico, blending the two countries together to form vibrant Tex-Mexified cities like Brownsville. Experience Brownsville’s rich history at the historic Brownsville Museum, housed in a 1920s train depot. For a taste of Mexican cuisine, try authentic Mexican barbeque at Vera’s. The Sable Palm Sanctuary is a beautiful nature reserve with a forest of palm trees, where you can spot hundreds of bird species and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. For affordable and delicious tacos, visit local favorite Ultimo Taco and try their variety of taco options.

At the very tip of Texas, where just a river separates two countries, a vibrant Tex-Mexified adventure awaits. Time for some South Texas-trippin’!

Housed in a 1920s train depot, this museum tells the story of the Mexican-American War and how it lead to Brownsville’s creation. The exhibits show that Brownsville is a place where the histories of Mexico and Texas mix together.

You can visit the Palo Alto battlefield to learn about the first battle in the Mexican-American War. Tour the battlefield, get a bird’s eye view from the observation deck and even see historic cannons and field guns from the battle.

If you’re expecting brisket and sausage at this barbecue joint, then you’re thinking of the wrong kind of ‘cue. Sure, it’s still smoked meat, but Vera’s is one of the few spots left in the states serving up traditional Mexican barbacoa — a full cow head cooked in a burning pit in the ground. Don’t let the words “cow head” scare you off, it’s mighty tasty in a taco.

When you’re in Brownsville, just prepare for tacos galore. This local favorite is opened late and tacos are about a dollar a piece. The choices are simple: choose between 6 or 8 street tacos and choose your meat. Then prepare for a beautiful presentation of tacos piled high with avocado, onions and cilantro, with plenty of hot sauce choices.

The Sable Palm Sanctuary is an old sugar cane plantation right in the middle of a lush native palm forest filled with colorful birds and wildlife. Take a stroll through the sanctuary to get lost in the South Texas beauty.

Boca Chica Beach is the spot where the Rio Grande meets up with the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a pretty cool to see this water that has floated all the way down from El Paso.

Talking Texas | Bluebonnet History, Killer Pets & Texas Dance Halls

Published

on

www.youtube.com – The Daytripper – 2024-03-01 12:29:20

SUMMARY: The Bluebonnet became the state flower of Texas in 1901. There were three main contenders for the state flower, including the Cotton Bowl, Indian paintbrush, and the bluebonnet. Eventually, the bluebonnet won and became the state flower. It is currently not illegal to pick bluebonnets in Texas, but it is advised to respect the flowers and private property. The gold poppies that grow in El Paso’s Franklin Mountains are a result of people planting poppy seeds in the 1930s. It is debated how the poppies originally came to the area, but they continue to cover the mountains in a beautiful display each spring.

We’re back again talking about all things Texas. With spring here, we’re discussing bluebonnet history and how it became the state flower of Texas.
