Sher and I decided that we wanted to flee the cold Indiana winters this year. Thus off we headed to the South Texas area known as the Rio Grande Valley. New Year’s Day seemed like a good day to not only start the new year but also start our journey south.
Our trip took us three days. Three wet, rainy, and drab days. Yes, it rained continuously from the time we left home base until just south of Corpus Christy, Texas. Finally some sun!
We arrived at Park Place Estates & RV Resort in Harlingen, Texas just at dark. I had talked to the office, and we were expected by the gate guard, who showed us to a spot with electric for the overnight. Come morning when the office was open, we toured the park. They had suggested two spots for us, and we were happy with one of them. As first timers at this park, we received a very good discount for our first month’s fee.
This facility is designed with Snowbirds in mind. There are tons of activities planned, everything from horseshoes to making stained glass. An 85 degree heated pool and hot tubs are always available. We brought our bikes which will make getting around this large park easy. This park is one of several under the same corporate umbrella, and several other RV Resort companies are represented in the area.
This is our first time being true “Snowbirds”, that is in a warm winter climate in a park for +55 folks. We aren’t visiting family, nor are we traveling about doing touristy things. Sher and I are looking forward to a relaxed but sometimes busy couple of months. We’ll let you know how things are going…

I see Texas has had a huge amount of snow and rain lately! Be safe. 😎
Thanks John. So far it has been sunny and warm here for the two days we’ve been here. Hopefully that trend will continue.

I hope it stays warm. Snowbirds love that, me too being from Michigan. It’s so nice here year round.
What an adventure! Look forward to seeing what you get up to in the weeks and months ahead.
Thanks! We’ll be reporting in as time goes on…
Enjoy your hanging out time in Texas.
So far we’ve had a ball! Weather is great, people have been super nice, and there are tons of activities! Hope your New Year is going well.
