I'm traveling through McAllen in April alone as a touring singer/songwriter. I'm a female and I will be in a small, stealthy, 19 foot RV. I have some interest from clubs to have me play there, but when I realized how close the border it is, I got nervous. Is it safe so close to Mexico to be traveling as a single female? How high is the crime rate? Should I stay further north in Austin, Houstin, Dallas and San Antonio?
