The county is home to Laredo College and Texas A&M International University. It is also close to Quetzalcoatl International Airport on the Mexican side of the border.
Laredo represents the largest city in Webb County. It is situated along the northern bank of the Rio Grande. On the other side of the river you can see Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The historic city was created in 1755, and has transformed into the largest inland port city on the U.S. and Mexico border. Laredo has a population of 236,100 – designating it as the tenth largest city in the state of Texas. It is also the third most populous along the Mexico and U.S. border behind El Paso, Texas and San Diego, California.
As a result of its proximity to Mexico, the economy in Webb County is largely driven by international trade. There are four international bridges and one major railway that connects Texas to Mexico through Webb County. When Laredo is combined with the Nuevo Laredo area the estimated population of the entire region spikes up to well over 636,500 people. The vast majority of residents on both sides of the border are of Hispanic or Latino origin. In fact, over 95 percent of residents in Laredo are Latino or Hispanic, making it one of the least ethnically diverse cities in the U.S.
Laredo is renown for its giant festivals. Each year the Washington’s Birthday Celebration attractions hundreds of thousands of visitors. The Jalapeno Festival, Border Beer Fest, Princess Pocahontas Pageant, and Stockmen’s Ball are also huge draws. Though the county is very crowded it is also scenic and within driving distance of many weekend getaways. Laredo is located on the west end of the Rio Grande Plains.

Webb County is known for being in a semiarid climate. The summers are traditionally hot and winters are very mild.

Therefore, it is not uncommon for the weather to shift dramatically and with short notice.
