McAllen overview

Set against the Rio Grande near the Mexican border in southern Texas, McAllen is a popular destination for those looking to enjoy the region’s famed warm weather, no matter what time of year it is. In fact, McAllen’s enviable winter temperatures make it a popular destination with retirees, or so-called snowbirds, who flock to this Texan town to escape the harsh weather of the northern U.S. and Canada.

With the population swelling in the winter months, this is when McAllen comes alive with activity. Annual events are centered around these months, but there is also plenty to do throughout the year. Two state parks and a wildlife refuge offer an escape into the natural side of Texas, and the nearby World Birding Centres are some of the top spots in the country to catch glimpses of rare birds in their natural habitat. Indeed, birding is one of the most popular pastimes in McAllen.

But if the indoors are more appropriate, perhaps visits to McAllen’s International Museum of Art and Science, Museum of South Texas History or Hidalgo Pumphouse Museum are in order. There is also shopping available at La Plaza Mall and the Rio Grande Premium Outlets.

McAllen’s southern neighbors have welcomingly influenced the local dining scene, and authentic Mexican fare can be found throughout the city. Tex-Mex is another big draw, and international influences from Europe and Asia can also be seen in McAllen’s culinary scene. When it comes to nightlife, the bars and clubs of downtown 17th Street stay energetic well into the night.
