Welcome to The Upper Valley


The Los Ebanos Ferry, the only hand-pulled ferry across the Rio Grande and the last on a US border crossing, carries travelers over an isolated section of the river west of McAllen. The ferry can carry three cars and several people on each five-minute journey.

After all that desert, the city of Laredo feels like something of a metropolis, and the combination of historic sites and fantastic Mexican food alone makes it worth a stop of a day or two.
