There are not many infamous attractions or things to do in Los Fresnos, but it is a wonderful community full of kind people. Los Fresnos does have an annual rodeo every February which brings everyone, young or old, together. High school football is also a popular event here and no matter the record of our football team, falcon fans will always come and cheer on the team. We may live in a small town, but our hearts are big and will forever bleed maroon and gold!

I went to school in Los Fresnos after years of being a military brat. It was one of the most closed-minded places I had ever lived. There are a ton of children but I would not say they are thriving. The high school treated children like prisoners. I would love to see more activities and places for kids to hang out outside of church. It is a very family friendly place. The town has been growing in recent years and adding businesses and jobs, which is fantastic! It's near the beach and Schlitterbahn. It's near the Flea Market in Brownsville. It's a cheap place to live (if you can find a job). It is primarily a hispanic community. So expect delicious Mexican food.
It is a very safe and nice community, close to the beach, Mexico and many shopping centers just a few minutes away, while living in a suburb type of city. This small city still has the many amenities that come with living in a big city though its small. It has a walmart, three playgrounds, restaurants, safe and excellent schools and many free sport events that come with living in the Los Fresnos area. I love Los Fresnos, but I believe the city could do a better job policing real crime rather than stopping drivers for 1 mile over speed limit or a rolling stop that occurs when no one is around in a desolate and bewildered street.
