Wish your kids or grand kids could experience how a day at the beach used to be? Remember crowding into your parent’s station wagon with all your gear, looking for the perfect spot? Spreading out for the entire day. No t-shirt or fast food joints. No crowds. That’s exactly why you should visit Boca Chica Beach before SpaceX lands. ‘Cause it is all going to change.
Is there anything special here?
Ever since 2014, when SpaceX confirmed plans to build a launch facility on Boca Chica, I’ve been worried. What will happen to this isolated gem when tourism takes over?
Right after the announcement, three of us loaded into a Mini-Cooper to visit the area before those rockets arrive. With a Civil War battlefield, nearly abandoned settlements, and a big open coastline, you want to see it now, before everything changes. Or worse, before some things are completely lost.
