First Texas Triple Crown City

Pharr’s charm, heritage and worldwide connections have placed the community on the map as the ‘City of Choice’. Pharr is the only city in the State of Texas to be designated as a “Triple Crown City” and receive the Preserve America City, National Main Street City, and All-America City awards.

Healthcare remains a top priority for the community and is located conveniently within minutes of five full-service hospitals, four imaging centers, one mental health hospital, two wellness centers, three cancer treatment centers and many outpatient services.

Cost of living in Pharr ranks consistently below the national average and is one of the lowest in the state of Texas primarily because of low housing costs. Single-family housing permits have steadily increased over the last several years.

Much of Pharr’s character and charm arises from its rich variety of distinct neighborhoods, civic organizations and parks. Pharr offers multiple options for singles and families alike
