I am currently 15 years old and I have lived in Brownsville, Texas all my life. Living in Brownsville is quite interesting because we only live about 5 minutes from the border to Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico. As for stuff to do for children and teens like me, there really isn't anything. Brownsville is more like a retirement town as people say. It's actually quite boring for the children living in this town, many people just go to Harlingen or McAllen, which is about 30 minutes to an hour away, to do something fun with the family. The weather here is always really hot and humid, especially during the summer. During the winter it usually gets cooler, but it still is pretty hot. If you are someone who wants to move to a town that has cold winters, Brownsville isn't for you. Brownsville is currently growing as a city, but they aren't building anything for the children that like in their town.
