I understand, have spent last 8 years there of which the first four were perfect, then the next three were wet and cold. Last year we said if it was cold again it would be our last. It turned out to be the warmest driest best year yet. At about 1/3 the price of AZ I'm going back to the RGV

We stay at Marina Beach RV in Port Aransas every fall. Far enough away from Corpus to be away from all the hustle and bustle, but close enough for a trip in when necessary. Very nice park and on the island. Beach is just a few blocks down the road.

I spent my childhood near Chicago so I grew up knowing what a harsh winter could be. Of course, as a kid, I was indestructible and the cold never phased me. As I got older that changed rapidly, now serious cold is just painful.
The winters in the Texas Coastal Bend feature a very different kind of cold, much damper and quite dreary at times. Nevertheless, it never gets as bitter cold as the more northern climates. The RGV does stay a bit warmer and the environment caters to the retired set during the off (winter) season, but without the beaches I'm really not sure what else there is to offer down there.
Nothing like did we survive before Google?!?

I've been going to the RGV for 12 years now every so often there is an off winter for a short period but overall it's Great We stay at Casa Del Valle in Alamo just outside of the city of McAllen TX. won the park of the year award in 2015 not sure who won last year but the park has everything and your in the middle of the valley so it's easy to get all over.
