      Down here in South Texas, it is commonly known that anything South of Zapata Texas is known as "The Valley." I have lived all through out the Valley, including Rio Grande City. This entire area has seen exponential growth and shows no signs of slowing down. RioGrande city is where all of this growth starts, and I plan to stick around to reap all of the benefits.

      At first, Rio Grande City may seem like a small city; however, taking into consideration that the RioGrande valley at large sits so close together, it really is a huge area. I love the fact that there is so much to offer. There are a ton of restaurants, local amusement parks, and a ton of retail shopping. The main source for retail I personally enjoy is a huge outdoor multiplex commonly referred to as "the outlets." You can find everything there at a great price.

      RioGrande city has grown so much since I moved here and every couple of months they open up something new near by that makes living here awesome!
