Tipton Auto is proud to call McAllen its home. Located at the southern tip of Texas, McAllen has a warm climate, and its abundance of palm trees has earned it the nickname “The City of Palms.” McAllen is 1.5-hours northwest of Tipton and Brownsville, and it is the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the state of Texas. McAllen’s proximity to Mexico and the ocean, plus the friendly residents who live here, give it a vibrant, festive culture.
Things to do in McAllen
The McAllen Nature Center is a great place to take the family for a quiet walk under the trees. Trails here are short and flat, and the facility offers a great representation of southern Texas flora and fauna.
After a walk through the Nature Center, head over to 17th Street for a taste of McAllen nightlife and entertainment. Many hip clubs line the street, such as the Midnight Club or Mezzanine on 17th. The large selection of bars and restaurants will guarantee you can find a place to suit the mood of you and your friends.
