Harlingen, Texas or Bust! OK Harlingen is not exactly the vacation destination but you might want to give it some consideration. The weather is usually good and the people are friendly. If you like garage sales they have many going on around the clock. In fact the whole town is for sale for the right price. If you are in the market for a bargain then Harlingen might be the place for you. I had a great time in Harlingen last year and plan to return this year. I am indeed a glutton for punishment. Ken Fisher is a long time resident and couldn’t be happier.
