The Southernmost tip of Texas is often called “The Valley”, short for the Rio Grande Valley. But the area is not in fact a valley anymore. It contains many small lakes of water cut off from the main Rio Grande River and attracts many visitors to see the many wildlife refuges, visit the beaches of South Padre Island and taste the juicy citrus grown fresh in the area.
Many Winter Texans or “Snowbirds” stay in The Valley during the winter, driving their RVs down from various northern states to experience the warm climate and friendly parks located in the area.
The younger college crowd swarms South Padre Island and surrounding areas during Spring Break. And families visit various RV parks and resorts throughout the year for a family vacation filled with outdoor activities and sunshine.
Many museums, historical landmarks and wildlife areas can be found in this region. Bird watching, boating, fishing, hiking and whitewater rafting are also very popular, especially for families on vacation or Winter Texans ready to explore.
