McAllen, Texas Overview

McAllen is at the southernmost tip of Texas along the Rio Grande River, and it's the first non-seaport foreign trade point in the U.S. It's one of the fastest-growing areas in the United States and has experienced a significant population and economic boom over the past 20 years.

It owes a lot of its growth to the North American Free Trade Agreement and its trade with Northern Mexico. Many companies set up their plants in Mexico with support operations in the McAllen-Edinburgh-Mission metropolitan area. The McAllen International Airport has nonstop service from McAllen to Mexico City, which gives this border town a transportation advantage over others.

Eighty-five percent of McAllen's population is Hispanic and 84.3 percent of the population speaks Spanish predominantly.
