Often recognized as the home of legends such as Tom Landry and “Home of the Ruby Red Grapefruit”, Mission is definitely where great things originate. You can grab your binoculars and view the most spectacular collection of birds on earth with more than 525 species documented at the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park. Or you can flutter among the butterflies at the National Butterfly Center. The Center showcases live animals and plants in wild and nurtured settings while also including educational exhibits for understanding and appreciation.
With Main Events Entertainment, a new Cinemark Movie Theater and their Aquatic Center, Pharr has become one of the best destinations for fun, shopping and culture! As populations boom alongside a bigger economic influx, the City of Pharr is thriving by bringing in new and exciting businesses to the Rio Grande Valley.
Home of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and the Hidalgo County Courthouse, the City of Edinburg has a small town feel, yet all of the big town fun. Edinburg hosts a number of great events throughout the year, including the South Texas Film Festival, various art exhibits and the All-America City 10k Run/Walk and Fun Run! Through Edinburg Arts, a division of the Edinburg Library, the city is able to also provide programs and events that promote the arts and culture of the Rio Grande Valley.
Established in 1943 for the protection of migratory birds, the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge is a 2,088-acre area in Alamo that offers visitors an opportunity to see birds, butterflies and many other species that can only be found in Deep South Texas. With many great activities, such as taking an open-air tram ride or joining a guided nature walk, Alamo’s Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge is a big attraction in this small enjoyable town.
