Banking in the Harlingen Area

Sitting in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley in the south of Texas is Harlingen. This city, because of its location at the intersection of U.S. Route 77 and U.S. Route 83, has become a distribution, shipping and industrial hot spot. The city also has a few local tourist attractions, such as the Iwo Jima Monument and Memorial. One aspect of Harlingen, other than its place as a city of industry, that invites questions about the banking options, is the fact that this city has the least expensive cost of living in the entire United States of America.

Due to the low cost of living and its industry, the Harlingen area has attracted quite a few banks. There are about 380 bank branches from nearly 35 different banks and 20 different credit unions. The oldest bank in the area, Texas National Bank, is nearly 100 years old.

There are also several banks and credit unions that have chosen to headquarter themselves in the Harlingen area. Twelves banks and the same number of credit unions fall into this category. A few of the more notable institutions that have chosen to be headquartered in the Harlingen Area include International Bank of Commerce, Lone Star National Bank, Security First Credit Union, Texas Regional Bank and Inter National Bank. With so many bank options open to the people of the Harlingen Area, it is easy to tell why industry has stayed in this city and continues its pattern of growth in the area.
