Traveling to Mexico from Eagle Pass is no problem, but nothing is easier than taking a trip down Main Street and letting Mexico come to you. Many of the shops and stores in this part of town carry genuine clothes, leather goods, ceramics, and more from the old country. The Mall de las Aguilas is just off Main Street, where you’ll find these items along with name-brand merchandise from national retailers. The cuisine is here, too, so get your fill of authentic fajitas and carnitas, and nothing goes better with all of this than an ice cold margarita. After you’ve shopped (but before you drop), head to the lovely Maverick County Lake for a nice walk around the water. Kids can feed the ducks, play on the playground, or fish from the lake, located just past the Mall de las Aguilas.
Fort Duncan Park is notable for being the home of the Fort Duncan Museum. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the museum commemorates the fort and the exploits of the men and women who served here as far back as 1849. Native American and vintage military clothing, including 19th-century infantry and cavalry hats, antique farming equipment, and captivating black-and-white photos of the area are some of the interesting items you’ll see while you’re browsing the museum.
