Douglas: Gateway to Mexico
The City of Douglas, with a history dating back hundreds of years to the 1500’s and the early Spanish explorers, is a small, charming community just across the border from Mexico. Douglas boasts a wealth of attractions for birders, hikers and shoppers.
The Douglas area is home to the San Bernardino and Leslie Canyon National Wildlife Refuges with over 283 different species of birds, mammals, and other riparian wildlife. And the international border crossing takes you to Douglas’ neighboring city, Agua Prieta, Sonora. It’s a portal to the wonders of northern Mexico.
Explore Douglas and discover historic landmarks including the Hotel Gadsden, the Southern Pacific Railroad Depot, the Grand Theatre (currently under renovation), Church Square (the only location in the world where four different churches are housed on the same block), and the first international airport in the U.S.
