Located at the southernmost tip of Texas, the Brownsville metro area marks the point where Texas meets both Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico. This strategic position has helped shape the metro area in several ways. It was here that American and Mexican troops first clashed in 1846, firing the first shots of the two-year-long Mexican War. And soon after the war ended, it was Brownsville's access to the Rio Grande river and the Gulf of Mexico that solidified its role as the dominant trading hub in the region.
Brownsville's residents continue to experience the influence of the metro area's location in their daily lives. With much of the city's population claiming Mexican heritage, Spanish is widely spoken, and it's just as easy to find authentic mole sauce as it is to find quality Texas sirloin. Meanwhile, the Port of Brownsville acts as a primary trade and transportation hub for southern Texas. And then there's the coastline. Brownsville's proximity to the Gulf means residents can enjoy the region's beautiful beaches all year long well, at least when the spring breakers aren't in town. And local fishermen ensure that there's plenty of fresh seafood to go around.BENEFITS AND COMPENSATION
