The Rio Grande Valley is located in the southernmost region of Texas, along the Texas-Mexico border. The area is unique ecologically. Mild winters, a relatively low cost of living, friendly people, access to shopping, dining and tourism, and a low crime rate are other advantages.

The McAllen area, for more than a decade, has been ranked at various spots among the five fastest growing areas of the nation. The area has a diversified economy, with construction, retail sales, manufacturing, agriculture and trade with Mexico fueling the local economic picture. There is a bustling community college and a growing, doctoral-level university to help fulfill educational needs.

Things to do:
Live entertainment with a Hispanic flair abounds and we have a large arena that brings in numerous big-name acts of virtually every music genre. We also have successful minor-league baseball, hockey and basketball teams that draw sports fans from all over the Rio Grande Valley. In addition, visitors are regularly attracted to the area with the finest beach in Texas nearby, opportunities for eco-tourism (the region is one of world’s best for bird watching), and shopping, dining and tourism in Mexico.

774,749 in Hidalgo County. More than one million in Rio Grande Valley.
