The passage by the United States Congress of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994 dramatically changed the face of the McAllen economy. What was once a primarily agriculture-driven economy morphed into a major trading hub between the United States and Mexico, with Central America countries such as Honduras and El Salvador gaining an increasing share of the international trade dollar.
Located just south of the city, the McAllen Foreign Trade Zone received its federal commission in 1973. As the first inland foreign trade zone, the area facilitating trade between the United States and Mexico uses the local international airport to transport goods among numerous American and Latin American cities. The designation of the trade zone means manufacturers enjoy cost savings, which helps the local economy grow. Products shipped to the duty-free zone cost less to purchase than the cost of similar products manufactured and sold within the United States.
As the largest city located in Hidalgo County, McAllen is situated at the southern tip of Texas along the Rio Grande River. City limits extend south of the border defining river near the Mexican city of Reynosa. The unique composition of the city limits has created a standard statistical metropolitan area exceeding 1.5 million residents. The city had an estimated 142, 212 residents in 2016, which was a nearly 10 percent increase from when the census counted residents in 2010.
We encourage city residents to learn more about state financial laws and regulations by accessing the Texas Department of Banking website. The detailed state-run website presents information that helps McAllen residents acquire personal loans for the purchase of a new home or car.
The city experiences a subtropical climate during the warmer months of the year, from March through November. Most of the precipitation falls between April and July, although tropical storms that come in from the Gulf of Mexico changes the precipitation model in August and September. The unique climate spawns the growth of flora you cannot find anywhere else in the Lone Star State. McAllen Botanical Gardens showcases the unique plants growing in the region by offering visitors the opportunity to walk a trail through the native thorn scrub habitat.
