Living in Edinburg Texas
Edinburg Texas, is a successful, vibrant, family oriented city where opportunities are boundless. With a population of 77,100 residents, Edinburg is the county seat for Hidalgo County and home to the University of Texas Pan American and the largest school district in the Rio Grande Valley.
We’re growing and today we find ourselves as the hub for international and global companies. Our location is key when attracting new businesses. Highway 281 is the main entry point for people traveling in and out of the Valley, making it a convenience companies are taking advantage of.
Our airport is another key element that attracts businesses. We were recently designated a user fee airport by Customs and Border Protection. This means that international travelers can now fly directly to Edinburg without having to stop in another city to clear customs. By the end of the year, we will have a 5,000-square-foot facility at our airport that will house a full-time Customs Officer to clear international passengers. Already we have Jet Air Express, which makes several flights daily to and from Mexico. The user fee airport designation will bring others.
Edinburg is also known for its commercial activity and industrial and manufacturing industries.
Our growth is changing the face of the City but not the foundation that it was built on. Edinburg is all about history, culture and family, and we’ve built around that heart.
