The extreme South Texas heat may give Laredo a bad name, but what has in weather it makes up for in culture and history. Near the Mexican border, Laredo oozes culture from almost every corner. Booking one of the hotels near Laredo places you in one of the most historic areas in Texas. From its historic downtown to shops offering some great bargains, Laredo is perfect for both a weekend getaway and extended stays.
If you are looking to catch a great concert or event, head on over to the Laredo Energy Arena, where some of the biggest names in entertainment go to play to an enthusiastic crowd. But if you desire something a bit more quiet and relaxing, try taking a walk on one of Laredo's many birding trails (remember your binoculars). If, however, it is culture that you seek, book one of the Laredo hotels by some of the great museums located downtown.
Thanks to a variety of cuisines, Laredo has something to please even the most discerning of tastes. If breakfast is your favorite meal, make sure you find cheap hotels in Laredo that put you close to a place that serves one of their famous breakfast tacos, or "mariachis" as they are known. But if it is barbecue you crave, head on over to some of the top (and always packed) joints in the city. For a quick snack during one of your sightseeing adventures, stop by a local stand for antojitos such as corn in a cup or nachos, and cool down from the heat with a refreshing raspa. With Travelocity's price match guarantee, Travelocity will match a lower price and refund the difference if you find a better deal on Laredo flights. That makes booking vacations in Laredo a hassle-free experience.
