The most photographed landmark of Robstown, Texas, a suburb of Corpus Christi, is the perfect plus-sign intersection of two sets of railroad tracks. Stand at the spot and you'll see that it's just a coincidental quirk of the local transportation network, but these real-life crossroads, with their iconic South Texas surroundings of farmlands and oil fields, will strike you as poetically symbolic. In Robstown, you're in the very heart of Nueces County, in a city crossed by the Union Pacific Railroad and Texas Mexican Railway, and cut through by two perpendicular highways. Will you heed the call of the crossroads and spend your time considering which road to follow next? Perhaps instead you'll scoff at such provocation, finding contentment in staying right where you are.
Stay for a night or two at one of the hotels in Robstown, TX and you'll find it difficult to resist a trip to take a snap of the iconic crossroads. Do so, and you'll have a unique souvenir to remind yourself that sometimes when you're at a symbolic crossroads in life and unsure which road to take, it's also OK to just stay put for a while. Staying put for a while at hotels near Robstown will reward you with a taste of authentic Tex-Mex cuisine, from generous bowls of richly spiced chili to sizzling fajita plates to hand-sized pocket tacos you can eat by the dozen. As you dine, gaze over the sparse, windswept grasslands that surround the city and know that at some point it's time to go. If riding the railroad's not on the agenda, pick up one of the Robstown rental cars and take the road that leads to San Antonio. You'll find many San Antonio hotels ready to welcome you to the home of the Alamo.
