Self Storage in McAllen

McAllen, TX is rated as the twentieth largest city in Texas, by population (129 877 residents), and the largest in Hidalgo County. It is located in the southern part of Texas known as the Rio Grande Valley. The southern border of the city sits on the Rio Grande River, directly across from Reynosa, Mexico. The city is over 77% Hispanic, with the rest of the population being White, African American, Asian, among others, including nearly 3% of residents having a blend of races.

Cultural Amenities

Temperatures in McAllen are very mild and the area sees very little rainfall. March is the driest month, and September, due to hurricanes and tropical storms moving in from the Gulf of Mexico, tends to be the wettest. Seeing snow in the area is a very rare occasion, and only happened once between 1941 and 2004.

Modern day McAllen, TX is located on the parcel of land that was granted to Juan Antonio Villareal and Antonio Gutierrez in 1767 by Spain. These sections were known as porciones 63 and 64. The Gutierrez family was documented to have lived on the land up until about 1883. Heirs of Villareal reportedly lived on their portion of the land grant up to 1800, when the land was granted to JosA?A(C) Manuel GA?A?mez. Gomez established the Santa Anita Ranch, where he raised domestic livestock, and continued to be a driving force behind further colonizing the area.

SalomA?A(C) BallA?A-, great-granddaughter to Gomez, inherited the land shortly after wards. In approximately 1848, she married a businessman from Brownsville, John Young. Together, they continued to acquire more of the surrounding land, and applied for ownership of porciones 64 and 65 in 1852. In 1859, Young died living all the land to his widow and their son. John McAllen, who was Young's assistant in business, married SalomA?A(C) in 1861. They had a son together, and continued to add more land to their holdings. The ranch was renamed McAllen Ranch, part of which became home to present day McAllen, TX.

Today, the city offers a wide range of attractions including an Arts and Recreation Center, various modern and historical museums, Hidalgo International Bridge, birding center, and the Veterans War Memorial. Visitors can enjoy a challenging day on the golf course, fine cuisine, and plenty of shopping in the wide array of quaint shops and large malls.

Shopping is huge in McAllen: though the city is only the 20th most populous in Texas, its retail sales are the 12th highest. This is due to the fact that the city is a shopping destination for Mexicans visiting across the border.

Colleges and Universities

McAllen is home to South Texas college, which has 5 campuses and 27,000 students. From medical services and dentistry, to the latest technology, there are degree programs available for nearly every profession.

Neighborhoods and Real Estate

The crime rate in McAllen is very low, making it the ideal location for young families. In fact, the average age of residents is 35 years old. This young population might explain why wages are generally lower than in some other parts of the country. As such, the housing prices are also much lower. The average price for a single family home is estimated at about $128 400, and attached homes and townhouses sell for around $118 398.

The most desirable neighborhoods include Pelican Ave, Lark Ave, Bentsen Colonia and Timberhill Villa Colonia. Families living here appreciate a secure storage facility, especially when hurricane season draws near. Storing valuable items in a secure facility keeps it safe from storms and other natural disasters.
