Diverse Education

Edinburg is the proud home of the University of Texas-Pan American. It is the 10th largest university in Texas, and has a stunning 289-acre campus. You can obtain everything from a bachelor’s degree to a doctorate there, in studies from humanities to health sciences. The Rio Grande Bible School is also located in Edinburg and welcomes all denominations. The Institute emphasizes teaching Spanish for those who want to serve as missionaries in Spanish-speaking countries worldwide. There are also a number of public and magnet schools for primary and secondary education as well as Catholic schools.

Galleries with Herita

The University of Texas-Pan American is home to three art galleries. These galleries show exhibitions that offer a fascinating glimpse into contemporary artists from around the United States and Mexico. There is also a permanent collection with artistic works from around the world, from intriguing artifacts to earthen sculpture. The Museum of South Texas History has the largest collection of artifacts in the entire region, each with its own fascinating story to tell about Texas history. There is a special emphasis on borderland heritage between Texas and Mexico. Walking through this museum is truly like walking through history.

Lakes and Pools

Edinburg’s best-known outdoor attraction is nearby El Sal del Rey, which is Spanish for Salt of The King. This shimmering salt lake was a source of salt for Spain’s colonies in the time of the Conquistadors. It is open seven days a week, but you will need sturdy walking shoes because it is only accessible on foot. For a friendly jog or splash in the summer, there are plenty of parks in the city. Two water parks offer water slides, Olympic-sized pools, and picnic areas for grilling your favorite foods. Edinburg Municipal Park has soccer and baseball fields, along with fishing and a rollerblading trail.
