With towns along the border with Mexico, from Rio Grande City, including Mission, McAllen, Edinburg, Harlingen, and Brownsville to South Padre Island, the area resembles a large American "hot dog". It's a multicultural area, where deliciously American and Mexican cultures are mingled together. Brownsville and McAllen are the area's largest cities with approximately one-hundred-fifty-thousand inhabitants each. The beaches of South Padre Island are one of the most important tourist attractions in the area, particularly at Spring Break time. For its privileged climate, opportunities for growth and development, its many attractions and amenities, RGV is really an ideal place both for living and for visiting.
