Featuring a lush array of indigenous trees and plants, Shady Acres Resort is a sanctuary. Shady Acres is open year round with planned activities November through March. We are loaded with attractions from golfing, fishing, Winter Texan events, Charro Days, air shows, birding, and wildlife refuges. Centrally located in Donna TX, midway between Harlingen and McAllen, and minutes from South Padres Island, Shady Acres Resort is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle, and perhaps the best value in the Rio Grande Valley. The climate is semitropical, with average daily temperatures in the winter in the 70’s. Shady Acres is pet friendly!
