McAllen is a large city located in the state of Texas, in Hidalgo County, towards the southern end of the Rio Grande Valley. To its west lies the Gulf of Mexico that sends a constant flow of sub-tropical breeze through the city, making it perfect as a birding location, and for outdoor sports and recreational activities all year through. You’ll want to book an RV in McAllen to explore everything the city has to offer.

With such close proximity to Mexico, McAllen is a popular tourist spot for both Americans and Mexicans. History has pegged the city as an agricultural, tourism, and oil center through the decades. Today the city, named after John McAllen, a wealthy businessman who donated land for building a railroad through the area, is a hub for those who travel to experience a relatively cheap vacation featuring great sightseeing, bird watching, food, shopping and more.
