Boca Chica Beach offers two unique experiences to visitors willing to make the journey.

So whether you’re in the Brownsville area and looking to fish or merely catch some rays, you’re a space fan and are hoping to get a glimpse of the latest SpaceX rocket, head down to south Texas and check out Boca Chica Beach.
