South Texas Plains



Texas begins here in Laredo! Located deep in the heart of South Texas at mile marker 1 of Interstate Highway 35.

You can count on Laredo’s lodging facilities to make your stay on the South Texas border a home-away-from-home experience. Whether you’re looking for a historic hotel in downtown Laredo or a suite just a few minutes from the airport, Laredo offers a wide variety of accommodations to match your pocketbook and travel needs.

Laredo’s warm weather creates the perfect ambiance for a weekend of fun and relaxation. The Max, Laredo’s municipal golf course, is nestled quietly along the Rio Grande. Pack your golf clubs and get ready to tee off at this Robert Trent Jones, II signature course while taking in the beauty of South Texas. The 18-hole public course features 7,297 yards of golf which bring you right up to the edge of the country overlooking the Rio Grande. Several holes allow golfers the chance to hit the ball into another country- right into Mexico!

The course continues to be recognized as one of the top public access courses in Texas.  It has received notable attention nationally and in the southern United States in regional publications over its short life span.
