Young Professionals

There isn’t much of a young professional district in Brownsville given its family-focused culture. Downtown is where most head due to the greater density of apartment rentals and short walks to bars and local restaurants. South Padre Island tends to pull in more of the young professionals who wouldn’t dream of being so far from the beach back in Brownsville.

Cameron Park


Anyone looking for fancy is likely to pick one of the nicer suburbs like Rancho Viejo or Palm Valley. Big homes, high safety ratings and excellent schools pull families out of the city to the isolation of the burbs. City families congregate in neighborhoods like Cameron Park, where the homes are nice, there’s plenty of outdoor space and the streets are safe and tree-lined.
