Laredo on Wikipedia

I was bored today around noon time and mildly curious as to see what information I could find about my hometown on wikipedia. Wikipedia, a user generated site, had much useful information to offer. One of the things that brought a smile to my face was that under the entertainment/nightlife section, "Boystown", was listed as a main attraction. I love the fact that most people only know of our fair city (and our sister city) because of the infamous red zone district and a certain farm animal. Laredo is much, much more than that. It's about time we began to tell the world of all our other treasures.

Perhaps maps and street level Google views would be the way to go for those who are not inclined to make it to la zona.
