Border Field State Park
Although temporarily closed, Border Field State Park has a vast extension of beaches, trees and trails leading to the U.S.-Mexico border and Friendship Park.
The Mexican side of the border breathes community and art, and the U.S. side of the border feels militarized and cold; however, the natural area leading to the border is perfect for an afternoon walk to a (mostly) empty beach.
It will likely reopen at the same time as the border.
