Downtown Harlingen

Downtown Harlingen is situated along the picturesque palm-lined Jackson Street that has served as Harlingen’s “Main Street” for more than a century.  Downtown Harlingen features a variety of unique shops that specialize in home decor, apparel, original Texas artwork, hand-made jewelry, gifts, antiques, and collectibles.  While you are downtown enjoy the regional cuisine at one of the locally-owned eateries.  Specialties include tex-mex, barbecue, juicy burgers, and fresh salads and sandwiches.  A vintage vinyl shop, old-fashioned soda bar, and authentic army surplus store are just a few of the reasons that locals and visitors alike flock to the area.

Downtown Harlingen hosts the Harlingen Farmer’s Market and Jackson Street Market Days in addition to family movie nights, parades, classic car shows, and other popular community events.  While you are here, take in a tour of the historic downtown business district or Harlingen’s larger-than-life murals.
