Bert Ogden Chevrolet calls the western outskirts of Mission, Texas, its home, and that means we are just a short 20-minute drive from customers in McAllen. We love visiting McAllen, Texas, and likewise, we love inviting visitors from McAllen into our dealership, whether they are here to shop for a new or used car, service the one they own, or just to say hi.
Currently, 145,000 (give or take) people call the great community of McAllen, Texas, home. It has been an important part of Texas for more than a century, having been around for roughly 115 years.
Whether you are new to the area, just visiting, or a long-time resident in search of something fun to do, we have plenty of recommendations. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the plentiful hiking opportunities at places such as Las Palmas Park Trail, Los Encinos Park Trail, and Retama Village Park Trail. If the weather is nice enough and you time your visit for the right day, you could even load up on fresh fruits and veggies for your hike by stopping by the McAllen Farmers Market. Many locals like to take the produce and have lunch on sunny days at Firemen’s Park.
Are you into the arts? You’ll love an evening in McAllen’s Artwalk and Arts District. While you’re in town, you just have to catch a show at one of McAllen’s many theatres, including University Theatre, Limelight Theatre, and Thirteen O’Clock. The town is so rich in arts and culture that you could catch a show by the South Texas Players one night and then take in the sounds of McAllen’s most talented musicians the next — perhaps via the McAllen Symphonic Band, Valley Symphony Orchestra, or South Texas Lyric Opera.
