20200109 Victoria Palms Softball HMiller 0641 webA big welcome back to all our Winter Texan visitors. We are excited for this upcoming year and are happy that you have chosen to spend some of your time in the great Rio Grande Valley. Our regular visitors and converted Texans all know why South Texas is a favorite among Winter Texans. In fact, Texas had 17 cities make the top 100, including McAllen, Mission, and Harlingen, in a recent survey (StorageCafe) of favorite ‘Snowbird’ destinations. We hope that some of our new visitors will see why the Valley has been a hidden gem among winter visitors.

Also included in that survey, were the top 100 most affordable cities for Winter visitors. All but one of the top 10 was a Texas city. The Valley cities of Brownsville, Harlingen, McAllen, Edinburg and Mission were the top five, in that respective order.

So, what brings you here? It’s not just to get out of the cold weather the northern states experience. Sure enough, when we talk to Winter Texans that visit the Valley, they will often tell you it’s the people. After that, it’s the activities and weather. The subtropical climate, abundance of things to do, and affordability bring Winter Texans to the Valley – year after year.20160125 GOA Shuffleboard DY 0013 web

Last year, we had some difficulties with things to do at the parks, but there are always sights to see in the Valley. The Valley abounds with history, nature trails, museums, and there is always the beach. You can find places to see in our visitors guide on our website where we included regional maps this year.

This year, parks are ready with activities to entertain you. Nearly all the parks we have talked to will have activities throughout the year. Our Parks Calendar is evident that there will be dances, bingo games, dinners, church activities, and more for you to enjoy. Soon we will be showcasing our Wintertainers™ that will be making their trips to the Valley to entertain you with their music and shows. Everyone is ready for a fun filled year.

Parks have been telling us their reservations this year are what their peak was last year, or nearly there. This is a good sign that y’all are coming and are ready for all the Valley has to offer.

We look forward to getting out there with you and enjoying the activities, music, and weather as well.
