Car Hire Harlingen

Harlingen Airport Guide

Harlingen itself has little to offer the tourist as it is only a little over a hundred years old and has few historic buildings of note. It’s outside the city that the true attraction is revealed for Harlingen is in the middle of the Rio Grande Valley. There’s a host of water sports on the river including canoeing, rafting, canyoning and more. Those that may not like the water can still hike the many miles of trails that follow the river. In spring, the trees in the valley turn it into a green oasis.

Harlingen Info

Harlingen is a medium sized city in the Rio Grande Valley founded on the junction of routes 77 and 83. In its early days it was a major distribution centre in Texas due to its geography. The implementation of a US Military Base near the city in World War II nearly doubled its population and the base continues to add to the city’s economy and contributes to the growing population of the city.

Harlingen Trivia:
  • Harlingen is a relatively new city founded in 1904
  • The city is right in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley
  • Its growth was based on its position at the intersection of two major highways
  • Early plans included using the Arroyo as a commercial waterway which didn’t work out.
