Just north of the U.S.-Mexican border and the Rio Grande River in Hidalgo County lies the city of Mission, Texas. Mission is an important area for growing grapefruit, which it has done since before 1921 (earning it the nickname “Home of the Ruby Red Grapefruit”), and it is the operational base for the Texas Citrus Exchange. The annual Texas Citrus Fiesta Parade is one of Mission's important parades, involving fruit styled floats, law enforcement and fire department employees, bands and public officials. Buy some grapefruit and store it in your travel trailer rental Mission for snacks as you continue on.

The former home of writer William S. Burroughs, Mission tempts visitors with an intruiging combination of US and Mexican culture. And then there’s the ample sunshine that makes for long days of exploring outdoors. Search for an RV in Hidalgo County and you are embarking on an adventure in an area steeped in history. Other nearby cities that might be of interest to you are Harlingen, Brownsville and Rio Grande City, and your camper rental Mission is the perfect way to see them.

The Great Outdoors

Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge is a 97,000 acre habitat established in 1946 for protecting and maintaining stocks of migratory birds, such as aplomado falcons, redhead ducks and others. Nearly half of all continental U.S. bird species can be seen here, as well as white tailed deer and ocelots (a midsize wild cat). It is one of the top bird watching destinations and has the most recorded number of bird species of all of the refuges in the National Wildlife System. A portion of the refuge is open to the public for bird watching, photography, environmental education, and fishing and hunting. Permits may be required and visitors should check with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to find out more information. Your motorhome rental in Mission is the perfect blind for observing these creatures in their natural environment.

Padre Island National Seashore is a barrier island that separates the Laguna Madre from the Gulf of Mexico; it is also the longest preserved barrier islands in the world. The Laguna Madre is a hypersalienated resting ground for Kemp ridley sea turtles and more than 380 species of birds. Padre Island has 70 miles of coastline, flat prairies and dunes, and wind tidal flats, all of which are protected by the park, and it has a colorful history; this is where Spanish shipwrecks ran aground in 1554. Kayaking is permitted here in the lagoon, and enthusiasts may fish from their kayaks if they have to proper permit. Kayakers are reminded to bring plenty of water, carry out their garbage (bags can be provided) and not to disturb the wildlife. PFD's (Personal Flotation Devices) are required at all times. Keep your luxury RV rental Mission nearby for a relaxing end to your day's adventures.

There’s plenty to do and a real community atmosphere at this campground, so it’s a great option to stay with your Mission RV rental by owner.

Sleepy Valley Resort has 500 sites with full hookups (water, sewer and 30/50 amp electricity) and wifi. The campground has restrooms and showers, plus a clubhouse and swimming pool. The site hosts both long-term and short term residents, which is common in this part of Texas.

Exploring The City

There is as much to do in the city as outside of it, and a good place to start is the local butterfly and birding centers. The butterfly center is managed by an NGO committed to sustainable environments and uses the 100 acres it occupies on the Rio Grande River to maintain a botanical garden that balances plant life and various butterfly species. The birding center operates a tram that acts as an informational tour while taking you into the reserve.

There are several in-town parks and trails for hiking and biking. Visitors looking for a more relaxing experience can take a river boat tour of the Rio Grande.

When it's time for dinner, remember that this is Texas; if you're not thinking “steak”, you’re doing it wrong. But if red meat’s not your thing, you’ll also find Mexican and southern (U.S.) fare, Chinese and Vietnamese, seafood, pub food, bistros, pizzerias and more. Don't forget that your best RV rental Mission is also a viable alternative. You could go for a quiet night in and a home cooked meal, with the night sky for entertainment. The only limit is your imagination.
