    This place is so cool! Actually didn't see a single butterfly (cold gray day) but there were tons of flowers, birds, and insects to see! Had an amazing time wandering around. Highly recommend making a trip!

    First off, you cannot drive your car through this state park. After visiting, we totally understand why. It's a gorgeous preservation area full of wildlife, peace and quiet. We RVd only 3 miles from this park. They have a large parking area and we brought our bicycles with us. There is a park tram that can be taken or you bike or hike it.
    So, so many beautiful birds there in February migrating from Mexico and we saw javelinas. The roads were perfect for biking; easy to get around and a multitude of bird blinds. There's also opportunities to kayak on the Reseca (basically an elongated lake).
    We loved this place so much we went twice during our week long stay in the Mission, TX area. Everything was perfect except staring at a portion of the ugly wall that had been constructed near the state park -- not good for migratory wildlife, but thankfully not much is there and they can get around it.
    We'd definitely go back to this location.

    Quaint little chapel with wonderful history to read about. Nice park next to it to enjoy a picnic lunch or a cool drink.

    This area is close to the highway, but once you start walking/hiking/biking, you kind of forget about that. Well marked trails and plenty of foliage. A good place for exercising or just enjoying an evening stroll.

    We are not experienced "birders" but we enjoy being outside. This is a very nicely run State Park. We visited in mid-October; had we known the Fall feeding season started early November, we would have have waited. However, we were not disappointed. We saw some hawks, lots of plain Chachalaca and a colorful oriel. We walked to the Hawk viewing platform, but took the free shuttled back. Be aware that the shuttle runs only once per hour.

    This is a really nice family oriented park where one can fish on the Rio Grande while bbq pits and picnic tables are abundant. Kids can enjoy several play ground areas and the security there is top notch. There are always constables and border patrol patrolling the area. Really nice place!

    We toured the perimeter of homesite, garden plants and learned more from the person who was in charge of renting out the home. The interior has been retained in its original condition as much as possible while adding AC/HT for the comfort of its guests. there is also another structure and large pation that can be rented out for parties, etc. I would consider it for rental for larger party of guests than our home can accomodate.

    Enjoyable cruise. 2 hr. Guide was good, but nothing to say on return trip. Seating was not great, all should be facing forward, so dont need to twist around or take pics over people's heads. Price was fair.

    This brewery is located on the Mission food truck park, amd the picnic tables in the breezy outdoors made it feel very safe. I loved every beer we tried (I like malty more than bitter, which fortunately for me seems to be their style!). Will definitely be back.

    felt like i was in denver at a dispensary! place was really nice plus the clerks are very informative, got a few hemp cbd samples which where so tasty and fresh, really recommend you to check this local cbd shop and support them on their venture.
    i bought some fresh flower from their outdoor collection and was surreal,
