What Bert Has To Say About McAllen-Edinburg-Mission Metro Area

The McAllen area is dominated by local agriculture, border-zone factories, and commerce related to the port of entry at Reynosa into Mexico. Like other border towns, the area has a dominant Hispanic heritage, high growth rate, and a low cost of living. McAllen is in the center of a broad, flat agricultural area known locally as “The Valley” dotted with vegetable and citrus growing interspersed with small towns and expanding suburbs. The more middle-class Edinburg, 5 miles north, is home to the University of Texas Pan American campus, the largest higher education facility in south Texas. Mission is an agricultural center west. McAllen, which has a reputation for being quieter than the border towns of Brownsville and Laredo, has a nice downtown area and is nicknamed “City of Palms.”
