Nicknamed the “Land of Two Summers,” the city of Alamo is nestled in the center of the Rio Grande Valley, within one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the U.S. The community, named for former landowner Alamo Land & Sugar Company, offers a wonderful quality of life characterized by a serene, natural environment in close proximity to some of the region’s top attractions.
Alamo is a part of the forward-thinking growth of the surrounding McAllen-Mission-Edinburg MSA, welcoming new subdivisions, restaurants, retailers and businesses to its mix. The residential population here has increased from 14,760 in 2000 to 18,353 in 2010. Add in more than 20,000 annual Winter Texans and you have one thriving community.
The area is also a haven for thousands of visitors each year. Known as the “Refuge to the Valley,” Alamo serves as the gateway to the adjacent Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, a 2,088-acre gem in the NWR system that attracts thousands of birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts annually.
While Alamo is a community on the grow, it still maintains its beautiful outdoor spaces and tight-knit feet that continues to draw people from all over the world looking to experience a one-of-a-kind lifestyle in the heart of the Valley.
