South Texas is beautiful all year round. With mild winters, breathtaking sunsets, a variety of bird and butterfly species, many snowbirds and summertime RVers alike call Oleander Acres RV Resort home. Come down to Mission, Texas and see the beauty for yourself.

Retirees and younger RVers both find Mission, Texas the perfect place to rejuvenate. A diverse population offers a sense of community in the bi-national region. With local golf courses, a rocket launch site, inviting waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and fishing, there’s plenty to do and see in the the Magic Valley.

Mission is the butterfly capital of South Texas Rio Grande Valley, and it hosts the Texas Butterfly Festival every November. There are Monarch butterfly gardens right on site at Oleander Acres, and the gardens attract several species. You might even see one fluttering outside your front door! Many bird species also fly through the Valley, so the most enthusiastic birders flock to the area to cross new species off their viewing lists.

Many people leave their RVs at Oleander and drive or fly down during the year to catch the best part of every season. For more information, visit their website and like their Facebook page.
