Del Rio, Texas

Del Rio bills itself as "The Best of the Border." It is the seat of Val Verde (green valley) County with more than 3,000 square miles. Agriculture includes cattle ranching, extensive production of sheep, lambs, wool, and mohair from Angora goats. There is abundant hunting for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, javelina, dove and quail. Fishing, boating and water sports are popular on Amistad Reservoir. Del Rio is the home of Southwest Texas Jr. College and Sul Ross State University Rio Grande College.

With some 400 archaeological sites, the area is among the nation's richest in aboriginal cave paintings.

Local transportation makes it easy to visit Mexico just across the border. Regularly scheduled crossings occur throughout the day to Ciudad Acuna.
