Community Overview

The Rio Grande Valley offers a unique cultural mix between the United States and Mexico. In fact, it is a little of both and not completely either one.

The Rio Grande Valley is one of the top birding areas in all of North America, and only three states, including the entire state of Texas have more species of butterflies than can be found in the Valley.

The Valley is also a popular getaway for people looking to escape the harsh winters up north. These Snowbirds or "Winter Texans" cause the Valley's population to swell from October to March each year.

So whether you want to play golf in January, get intouch with nature or cross the border for a little cultural exchange, the Valley has much to offer.
