Living in Harlingen, TX

Situated less than half an hour from the Mexican border, Harlingen is a family-friendly community with well-rated schools. Being so close to Mexico, a significant share of the population is of Hispanic and Latino descent. The mild winters and affordable cost of living make renting an apartment in Harlingen a favorite among “Winter Texans” — transient population, primarily retirees, who spend the warmer months in northern Midwestern states and Canada.
