Brownsville anyone!

Brownsville is full of crime, drugs and poverty.  Stay in another town and go for a quick drive-through.

Everywhere we have been over the past few years has an increasing crime, drugs and poverty rate.  I'd sure like to know where I could go to get away from the crime.

Camped at  Brownsville 15 years ago. Rescue and police all night. Can't imagine what it is like now.Will never go back.

Were you parked near a hospital, police, or fire station?  We were in Mission 2 winters back and no real difference than most places we have been.  We never felt like it was less safe to out than any other places.

There are areas that you do not want to go into just like any larger city in the US.

Rio-Bentsen has no camping.  Texas state park stay limit is 2 weeks.

Worked in Norco Louisiana on night shift for a year. Had camper on River road. Listened to talk radio coming home and going. At least 1 murdered every night. Many nights several. Got stopped a couple of times checking on me out so late. Many places are like this. I would not let that stop me from going.

We visited friends in a resort near Brownsville, January 21 timeframe.  They never said anything about crime there.  They had some medical needs and raved about the care they got being much better than their hometown.

On the downside, they hated the constant wind!  So they didn’t go back this year.

We are in Mission for the first time and like it very much here.

None of the three state parks in the LRGV (Rio-Bensen, Estero Llano Grande, Resaca de la Palma) have RV camping. Rio-Bensen actually does have a few walk-in primitive camping. Falcon is the closest State Park with RV camping. 

We volunteered for three different winters in the valley. With a population of 1.3 million in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, there are some areas with high crime rates and many other areas with low crime rates. Just like any other cities in the US with that concentration of people. 

But I sure wouldn't avoid the area based on fear of crime.
