LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) – Whether you’ve lived in Laredo all your life or just moved here, many locals should get to know their parks and museums.
At Monday’s city council meeting, officials proclaimed this week Tourism Week, which is meant to be a campaign to promote the town of Laredo.
According to Convention & Visitors Bureau Director Aileen Ramos, living in Laredo isn’t just for business purposes.
People can enjoy exploring and knowing the ins and outs of the city.
Tuesday’s special event for Tourism Week is a city tour.
The tour will consist of visiting key places inside the city such as hotels, well-known schools and colleges, shops, malls and plazas and even iconic restaurants.
However, if you weren’t able to attend the tour, more events are coming along the way.
Ramos says that this weekend, locals will be able to visit several city museums for free just by saying the phrase “National Travel and Tourism Week.”
Residents will be able to access the Laredo Water Museum, Frontier Heritage Museum, Laredo Center for the Arts, Lamar Bruni Vergara Environmental Science Center, and the Rio Grande Republic Museum.
If you want to buy a small souvenir, you can go to the gift shop next to the outlets at 101 Salinas Avenue.
