The Rio Grande Valley (RGV), or what the local residents casually call the Valley, is located in the southern tip of Texas along the shore of the Rio Grande River and the border of Mexico. This border region is a unique area of the United States, with its own vibrant culture that is as distinctive and diverse as the Spanish and American ethnicities that coalesce there.
In the early days, the RGV was deemed the “Magic Valley” to attract settlers and to appeal to investors. It is now a vibrant delta area that thrives on agribusiness and tourism. The RGV is the center of citrus production and the most important area of vegetable production in the State of Texas.
The South Texas region occupies a diverse landscape including beaches, ports, ranches, and thriving cities. Comprised of four counties—Hidalgo, Starr, Willacy, and Cameron—the area is home to over 1.3 million people. The Valley is known for its year-round warm, sunny weather, exotic birds and butterflies, prime hunting and fishing locations, premier shopping venues, and its close proximity to South Padre Island. With its attractive weather and friendly environment, the Rio Grande Valley has quickly become a favorite location for vacationers and travelers from across the nation.
