Palmhurst is a city located in the southern portion of Hidalgo County, Texas. Much like its neighbors, McAllen, Mission, West Sharyland, and Alton, the town of Palmhurst experienced a lot of its growth when the St. Louis, Brownsville, and Mexico Railway finished the Hidalgo and San Miguel Extension (now Sam Fordyce Branch). In 1904, John McAllen and his son James made a deal with the railroad in which the McAllen family would donate land to the railroad with the promise it would run a route through their future town. In the 1920s, a few industries were established in the Palmhurst area such as wineries, canning factories, woodworking plants, tortilla plants, as well as oil exploration. In the 1940s, the McAllen–Hidalgo–Reynosa International Bridge was erected, attracting a flood of tourist to the area who were looking to escape the cold of winter. As the area’s popularity grew, it was decided to incorporate Palmhurst in 1966.
The McAllen–Edinburg–Mission metropolitan area boasts an array of indoor and outdoor activities, as well as being less than a few hours from major cities such as San Antonio and Corpus Christi, Texas. There are numerous natural green spaces available, such as the 230-acre Estero Llano Grande State Park located in Weslaco. Situated in the center of the World Birding Center network, this State Park is home to numerous species of South Texas wildlife that include the Gray Wolf, Palo Duro Mouse, Spotted Bat, and White-nosed Coati. Like many of the State Parks in the area, the Estero Llano Grande State Park offers guests many recreational activities such as cycling, caving, bird watching, fishing, hunting, camping, boating, and many other activities. Another exciting place to visit is the International Museum of Art & Science located in McAllen, with exhibits that include images from the Hubble Space Telescope, antique stained glass, the Discovery Pavilion, which is an interactive educational exhibit geared towards children. The International Museum also offers other types of educational programs about science-related topics that are meant for all ages.
