About South Texas

The south Texas region is comprised of thirty-four counties that make up the southernmost tip of the state. Seven of these counties comprise the southern Gulf Coast of Texas and six counties follow
the state's southern border with Mexico along the Rio Grande River.

With geography ranging from rolling hills in the northern counties to coastal plains and estuaries along the coastal bend and farming country in the Rio Grande Valley to the south, south Texas is also known for its game and mesquite rich brush country.

South Texas Land For Sale

Where is South Texas?

The "South Texas" region is the area of Texas south of San Antonio up to the Gulf Coast and the Rio Grande River.

Sometimes the area south of Austin and Houston is included within South Texas. However, here the northern boundary of "South Texas" is roughly defined by the line from Eagle Pass (in Maverick County) to Comal County, and from Comal County down towards Rockport (in Aransas County). This area includes 34 counties.

What cities are in South Texas?

The 5 largest cities in South Texas are San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Laredo, Brownsville, and McAllen.

Is San Antonio in South or Central Texas?

San Antonio is often considered the upper limit of the South Texas region. This makes it either part of South Texas, or the lower limit of South-Central Texas, depending on how you look at it. However, other demarcations of South Texas start south of Austin, which places San Antonio comfortably in the Texas South.

What is the most southern town in Texas?

The southernmost town in South Texas is Brownsville in Cameron County. The city is known for its historic sites and parks, proximity to the Mexican border and the Gulf of Mexico, and its humid subtropical climate.

South Texas Farming & Land Uses

South Texas has a significant variation in climate and terrain.

Sub-regions within South Texas include the Rio Grande Valley in the far south, the Coastal Bend along the Gulf of Mexico, and the South Plains to the west.

The southern and eastern portions of South Texas are known for their fertile black soils, allowing for the production of citrus and vegetables. Rice and soybeans have also historically been important crops in this area.

Cotton and cattle ranching are also a large part of the agricultural sector in South Texas.

The South Plains area north of Laredo is also known as the "Winter Garden" region, after its historic importance as a source of various vegetables, like onions, spinach, and beets.
