I had lived in Mission, Texas for a few years before relocating to Seattle. Mission has a rich history rife with many attractions, restaurants, night clubs, golf courses and entertainment. I used to love visiting the Bentsen-Rio Grande State Park, Rio Grande Valley, Mission Historical Museum and the City of Mission Museum. There is a nice array of culture, arts and diversity in Mission. For a small city, Mission excels in it's community-driven atmosphere that thrives on it's education and socio-economic atmosphere that is both engaging and ever-growing. The best thing about Mission is that you can make of it what you want. It can be a rich small city with diversity or a city that doesn't satisfy your needs. It's a city that truly is dependent upon the person living there to make the best of it.
Whether you are alone, as a couple or with a family there is plenty to do and so much to enjoy seeing if you live in Mission. Mission is also a really great city to conduct business in as well as start a family. There is a kind of quality of life in Mission, Texas that makes it both comfortable and relaxing. That's if you can stand the southern desert heat! Each year, Mission has continued to grow it's city parks, streets and neighborhoods. It is a community of living that continues to thrive and flourish, despite it being a rather small city. The major fallback to living in Mission is that it is not a major city. Therefore, if you crave a lot of activity and consistency of a bustling large city, Mission is not for you. But, if you crave a smaller city with many activities to do, great food, warm climate, and above all charming people, Mission is a beautiful place to settle in and move to.
