    Alamo is a decent sized town of almost 19,000 (up 27% since 2000) located along US Highway 83 near the intersection with US Highway 281 and the city of McAllen, in Hidalgo County in the South Texas Plains portion of far South Texas. It is one of many towns along the Texas Mexico Border in this area. The town was incorporated in 1924 and was named for the many Alamo Cottonwood Trees in the area. Alamo is known for the many vegetable farms and citrus fields in the area, and is a popular winter resort/retirement community.
