Harlingen, TX
Location is key when visiting the Rio Grande Valley (RGV).  That is why Harlingen is a magnet for visitors and Winter Texans alike. Centrally located between the two other major cities in the RGV – McAllen and Brownsville – Harlingen is the ideal place to stay while experiencing all that the Rio Grande Valley has to offer whether it is spending the day on the beaches of South Padre Island, visiting the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, shopping at the RGV Premium Outlets in Mercedes, visiting the original Iwo Jima Monument in Harlingen, or catching a WhiteWings baseball game – Harlingen’s own professional baseball team – at Harlingen Field.Harlingen is home to the newest Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, America’s most popular outdoor store.  This store is a perfect combination of a museum, art gallery, aquarium, outdoor conservation education and entertainment. Each store is uniquely themed to the region in which they are located so that no two stores are alike. The Harlingen store offers 3 ½ football fields of shopping excitement, and a unique underwater themed restaurant and bar with twelve bowling lanes.
Harlingen, TX
The outdoors are brought inside with distinctive flora and fauna including massive log and rock work, large aquariums and water features stocked with native fish species, and beautiful hand-painted murals throughout.   

In contrast, Harlingen’s Historic Downtown brims with boutiques, antique shops, and restaurants. If you still haven’t had enough retail therapy, Harlingen also offers Valle Vista Mall and other retail developments.  Just a few minutes down the road in Mercedes, Texas are the Rio Grande Valley Premium Outlets.  This 140-outlet mall is the premier destination for shoppers looking for impressive savings on designer brands.
