Where We Serve: Brownsville

Brownsville

Brownsville, Texas’ south-most city, is located “On the border, by the sea,” as the city’s motto reminds us: we are 4.5 hours south of San Antonio, 5 minutes north of Matamoros, Mexico, and 25 minutes west of South Padre Island. One needs only to turn on the radio, stop for lunch, or converse with the first person they meet to be reminded of the vibrant mix of cultures that defines almost every aspect of life in Brownsville. Experiencing America from a South-Texan vantage point is a new and often surprising experience for most ACE teachers, but for us, it has also been one of joy, warmth, and immense hospitality (and an unending supply of Mexican food).
