I went there a couple of years ago to the Kikapoo Casino. It was so much fun. Didn't get to do much site seeing but I have heard it is very nice up there. My dad has relatives there but he hasn't visited them in many years.Hope some one answers my posting. Take care and Have a Happy Easter. Keep warm.

I have been down to Eagle Pass several times (couple of those times to the Casino). Compared to other border areas like Laredo and Del Rio, there is not much to do. Go try Del Rio, they have a nice lake (Lake Amistad) nearby.

It is interesting that they put on their main web page that Eagle Pass is the "Best Way to Mexico" that tends to support my statement above.

I lived in Eagle Pass 2003-2004. Because Laredo is aboutt maxed out in the amount of freight it can handle from Mexico, the next logical place for border crossings is Eagle Pass. By % it's the most Mexican city in the States, and is considered a suburb of the Mexican city across the river, Piedras Negras. It was booming while I was there. The locals refer to summer weather as the 100 100's. Most summers get at least 100 straight days of 100 plus degree weather. It hit 112 while I was there and was often at 104 to 107 degrees. Unlike Arizona it isn't a dry heat. Usually 7 to 10 degees hotter than San Antonio.. There are nice people there, but I found Del Rio to be a much friendlier place. One thing that greatly surprised me was the lack of good quality Mexican food.. Mostly American fast food. The movie Lone Star was filmed in Eagle Pass. Great movie, so-so town. Winters are nice though.

You might want to visit our local museum... You'll be surprise about how much history there is in Eagle Pass. Good Example: The last confederate flag was bury here in Eagle Pass.
