Welcome to Alamo, Texas

Located in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley, Alamo, Texas has positioned itself as one of the most desirable places to live and work in the Lone Star State. As the third largest metropolitan area in Texas and the largest U.S./Mexico border region in America, the Rio Grande Valley plays host to thousands of visitors yearly from across the world. Known for its close-knit community, close proximity to South Padre Island, numerous wildlife and nature parks and an abundance of dining and shopping options, Alamo blends the convenience of small town living with the perks of city life.

Everything is Just a Short Drive Away

Alamo is the ideal place to live and work in the Rio Grande Valley, and with some of the shortest commute times in the U.S., work or play is never too far away. Located less than an hour and a half from fishing, boating and the beautiful beaches of South Padre Island, our city is also centrally located to some of the finest dining, entertainment, wildlife parks and art venues in South Texas. You also don’t have to look far to enjoy all of the food, culture and history that awaits just south of the border in towns like Progreso, Reynosa and Matamoros which are also just a short drive away.

Enterprising Business Climate

Alamo is one of the top destinations for tourists visiting the Rio Grande Valley thanks to its status as the number one birding destination in the United States. The Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge enjoys over 165,000 visitors a year, with 90% averaging a three to seven night stay at local motels and the number one birding bed and breakfast in the country. Annually, tourists supply Alamo and its surrounding communities with an estimated $34 million per year, which equals to unprecedented business opportunities and a thriving local economy. The area’s population consists mainly of a young, trainable, multi-lingual workforce and an abundance of educated, skilled labor. Alamo is also minutes away from over 400 manufacturing facilities in which corporations from around the world produce goods from electronics, appliances and auto parts.
