The Southernmost area of Texas that borders Mexico. It houses the two poorest counties in the nation (Hidalgo and Cameron). The cost of living is extremely low and if you are white and/or halfway successful, you are considered very rich. In high school, it is easier to get coke than weed, and easier to get weed than alcohol. About 86% of the valley is hispanic. South Padre Island is also located there, where spring break is insane.
The Rio Grande Valley is awesome for vacationing because of SPI and Mexico, but living there might be questionable.
