Get the door, it's the liquor store
Laredo, Texas. Known as The City Under Seven Flags, Laredo has a tumultuous history. Founded in 1755, it was an... independent country in 1840 along with three other Mexican states. Then, it became the capital city of the Republic of Rio Grande. It formed part of Mexico again before the U.S. acquired it in 1848 at the end of the Mexican-American war. Today, it's one of the busiest port cities in the world. Start your visit by walking through the famous "streets of Laredo." Visit the San Agustin de Laredo Historic District, and especially Zaragoza Street, to shop and enjoy old architecture. Don't miss the San Agustín Cathedral, also in the downtown area. Take a tour of or attend an event at Casa Ortiz. Check out the Villa Antigua® Border Heritage Museum to learn more about the history of the city and its various cultures. Spend the day fishing, boating, skiing, swimming, picnicking and barbecuing at Lake Casa Blanca International State Park. Go for a run or walk at Zacate Creek.
