Laredo Convention and Visitors Bureau sees there is a rise in tourism. The summer in United States is here and the city of Laredo’s Convention and Visitors Bureau is highlighting the attractions in town.
The tourism officials with the Laredo Convention and Visitors Bureau say they see a spike in tourism during the summer months since many people from Mexico and the U.S. visit local shops. Tourists can take part in the Coffee Tour, catch a game of soccer with the Laredo Heat, or even baseball with the Tecos.
Laredo Convention and Visitors Bureau says another draw is the town’s unique blend of cultures and history. Aileen Ramos the Laredo Convention and Visitors Bureau director said that Laredo is older than the U.S. They were founded in 1755. They were their own country for a while. They are one of the only places in the U.S. that have seen seven flags, with the Republic of the Rio Grande, and just the biculturalness of their community.
Ramos expects more visitors once the Sister Cities Festival kicks off on July 14th.
