The unemployment rate is lower than the national average, currently at only 7.6 percent. Due to the ratification of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994, trade, tourism and retail has increased tremendously in McAllen.

History:
The area around McAllen had been settled by the Spanish on both sides of the Rio Grande River. In 1797, a ranch was started at the site of McAllen by Jose Manuel Gomez. His great-granddaughter Salome inherited the ranch and land in the early 1800s, and she married a Texas businessman, John Young. Young died in 1859, and Salome married John McAllen in 1861, the ranch and surrounding area became known as the McAllen Ranch. In 1904, the railroad arrived. The end of that year, the township was established and named after McAllen. That, coupled with an irrigation canal that was completed in 1908 helped the small community to grow. In 1911, the town was incorporated. The discovery of oil in the Reynosa, Mexico area created a rush of people from the interior of Mexico to work in Reynosa and this greatly increased the retail and tourism businesses in McAllen. During the 1980s, McAllen's designation as a Foreign Trade Zone made it the third largest ports-of-entry from Mexico to the states.

Tourism:
McAllen is one of the country's premiere places for bird watching. It is on the migratory routes for many endangered and rare birds. There are several sites for bird watching in McAllen, but the foremost one is Quinta Mazatlan, a 1930s country estate featuring an adobe hacienda. There are numerous art galleries there, and there is an art walk on the first Friday of every month from September until May.
