Many come to think of the Valley as home, thanks to multiple opportunities for career and personal growth without the traffic and crime problems of big cities.

Nuevo Progreso is considered to be safe for tourists, and any day of the week you can park your car on the US side, cross the bridge on foot, and enjoy some great shopping and dining within a two block area of the bridge.
