This historic home at 2000 Palm Blvd in the historic district  Brownsville TX . The Palm House was built in 1950 by a local doctor and his wife and has been passed down through generations until now. In 2020 the Whittington family of South Padre Island aquired the home and are now opening it to vacationers who are visiting Brownsville. Palm House hosts University students and families for various year round University events and we also host people getting away for the weekend in Historic downtown Brownsville. 
Things to do in downtown Brownsville… come enjoy our rich culture and history; try the new and hip new places that are easy to find, attend one or our many festivals like the Historic Charro Days festival, Crossroads Festival or the annual Latin Jazz Festival. The University has many event throughout the year. First Friday is a night of art, live music, and more in Market Square every first Friday of the month.  You can take a salsa dance class, go on a historic downtown Brownsville walking tour, tour the historic and very interesting City Cemetery. Go to Historic happy hour and learn about the days of Davy Crockett in Old Town Brownsville back in the day. 
 
About downtown Brownsville and the historic district. Enjoy a short walk down Palm Boulevard to local restaurants. If you're craving Italian, try La Scala where you can bring your own wine; Lola's Bistro for delicious American food with an inviting back patio overlooking one of Brownsville's many resacas; and Spanky's Hamburgers or Rutledge Burger Joint for a casual meal. We're just blocks from the historic downtown Brownsville that features nightlife with live music and great restaurants. Dodici is one the best spots for pizza featuring a classic brick pizza oven and a wonderful wine selection, definitely a must!   Enjoy one of Brownsville's up and coming restaurants like Las Ramblas, Terras Dodicci and more. The Library bar and the historic Palm Lounge bar and grill are great places to meet up with friends. From great coffee to great music, El Hueso de Fraile is an artsy find. Browse around downtown, take a bike ride, do some shopping in the funky downtown shopping district. For the college and millenial crowd, go-to restaurants like Wingstop, Subway and the Bento Box are just next door to our beautiful new downtown transit station. The University of Texas RGV is 5 minutes away and it is a wonderful place to ride bikes or just walk along the resaca. Take in a movie or visit the Camille Playhouse for one of their amazing live theater productions in this vintage theatre. Gladys Porter Zoo is 10 minutes walking or two minutes by car. Linear Park features a fabulous Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. For something fun, the 7th and Park Coffee Shop offers snacks and bicycling. If you're here on a  Monday evening, you might want to grab one of our bicycles and meet there for the 6:30 Mello Monday bike ride with local bikers.For the serious bike rider there are great hike and bike trails throughout Brownsville. One that is close by will take you all the way North to Palo Alto Battlefield State Park. For fine dining we recommend Madeira, Toscafino's, La Pampa and, of course, Dodici as mentioned before. Make your plans now to come to Brownsville and enjoy the old and the new.
