Growing up in Edinburg Texas was awesome, here you have access to many amenities like fast food restaurants, libraries, grocery stores, sporting good stores, and many more! You’ll have everything you need. Education is taken seriously and that’s why the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District is at the very top of the valley rankings. What I like the most about Edinburg is that living here is pretty much affordable and everything is close by and easy to find. Also if you’re looking for a job you can get one almost anywhere, as there is many open positions, all you need to do is apply! Edinburg is family friendly and is diverse in culture.

Edinburg is a very sound, yet drab location, whether you are living here or even just visiting. In spite of that, however- I have grown especially attached to it, and the Valley, in general. There isn't anything very special about the community here, although there is definitely good-tasting food to be found, even in the most run-down looking establishments. Overall, my experience in this town is quite peaceful, I can't think of anything that stands out from the ordinary!
I love the progress that Edinburg is doing this year! Edinburg is flourishing into a beautiful city. It has a stadium for the RGV Toros and this year Edinburg will have another stadium for the RGV Vipers! This past five years Edinburg has grown so much, it has outlets full of stores for you to enjoy a nice day with your family as well as a variety of fast food restaurants to have a nice out with your family as well as different parks around Edinburg which are pet friendly to have a good workout, have a cookout or just simply go out for a walk. It also has a different type of groceries stores for you to go and buy groceries for the week. Edinburg is the place to live! come and join us.
