Eagle Pass, Texas
Where Yee-Hah Meets Ole

Welcome to Eagle Pass and Piedras Negras, where time moves at whatever speed moves you. Revved up and rearing to go? Wake up smiling and singing? Come on down. There's always something fun going on.

Or, if a quittin' time mode is more your mood, this is the place to mosey. Kick back. Stop and smell the cactus.

Established in 1849 as Camp at Eagle Pass, later called Fort Duncan, Eagle Pass has seen its share of bandits, cattle rustlers and outlaws and has contributed its own lore as part of the "Texas Badlands." You'll want to visit Fort Duncan Park, where it all began. And just down river from here marks the famous Camino Real, the primary north-south route between Mexico and Texas for 200 years. In the Texas Revolution, Santa Anna and his whole army entered Texas here on their way to the Battle of the Alamo.

Once you're here, slow down. Sit a spell. Kick off your boots and dip your toes into one of several motel pools. Order a cold one. Talk about where you're going to eat tonight. Eagle Pass knows what's on your mind and we're set up to suit you.

First-rate, affordable accommodations (national chains, too), great food and ice-cold drinks take care of the creature comforts. But check things out when you get here: hardly a weekend goes by without a fiesta or celebration of some kind. And of course, there's always the Lucky Eagle Casino, a modern gambling establishment located on the Kickapoo Indian Reservation.

Bullfight in Piedras Negras

If shopping is your passion, you've come to the right place. Stroll the plazas on either side of the border for great values and interesting items. In Eagle Pass, you'll find everything from a complete mall to custom boutiques in a bustling downtown district. In Piedras Negras, an old-fashioned market and open-air vendors add to the ambience. And negotiation is still a very good idea.

Whether your sport is golf, tennis, fishing, hiking, running, swimming, biking, rodeoing or just clowning around, you'll find that opportunities abound in Eagle Pass. (Bullfights are occasionally held in Piedras Negras, but you can see good bulldogging on both sides of the border.) Fishing the Rio Grande River is particularly interesting for the adventurous. Be our guest. Cast a line. Swing a club. Take a dive. And forget the clock.

Restaurants in Eagle Pass include national chains and the home-grown variety. Across the Rio Grande are a wide variety of fine restaurants. And yes, few border cities can equal our Mexican cuisine.
