Alamo, Texas, in what is nicknamed the "Land of Two Summers," is a town in the irrigated area of southern Hidalgo County, Texas. This town was incorporated in 1924, and it was named for the Alamo Land and Sugar Company, not the famous Texas Alamo Mission, 240 miles to the north. The town is located in an area of abundant vegetable farming and citrus groves, and it is a noted winter resort/retirement town near the Mexico-U.S. border. Alamo is also one of the Rio Grande Valley's gateways to Mexico, via U.S. Route 281 and Nuevo Progreso, Tamaulipas. Alamo's population was just 18,353 at the time of the 2010 U.S. Census.

Alamo is part of the McAllen–Edinburg–Mission and Reynosa–McAllen metropolitan areas.
