I would like to hear some suggestions for good places to stay in the Rio Grande Valley area, prefer close to the Gulf. I don't want one of those expensive RV Resorts. It will just be for DW and myself (and a dog). Just for a little sight seeing and shopping. Never been down to that particular area before, and thought we would check it out. Would be heading down that way first of July. Thanks !

There's also two haunted houses going on too....Scream Factor X (downtown Mcallen)and The Rotting Flesh Factory Haunted House (Harlingen)
The McAllen Art Walk is held every 1st friday of the month. It usually lasts from September until May
When there are shows and plays I LOVE attending the UTPA Theatre Plays.
An organization that seems interesting for those that are struggling and do not qualify for public assistance is ANGEL FOOD MINISTRIES. You pay 25 dollars and get 50 dollars worth of food. Every month there is a different menu. This is through different churches all over the United states and many are located in the RGV
You can see the menu and search for a HOST SITE for the your nearest location on their website.
We are in the Rio Grand Valley now and will be here for another week. If July is when you are gonna be here be ready for alot of heat. My DW and I are workampers here at Sleepy Valley Resort in Mission TX. There is a local travel agent here that arranges local sightseeing tours. I believe its called D & S Travel. I would start there for things to do while in the area. And for a shameless plug for Sleepy Valley. Its a nice park and has very reasonable summer time rates if you are looking for a place to stay. They can accomidate any size RV or they have Park Models for rent.
