"Texas Highway 4 leads east from Brownsville to the Gulf of Mexico. Boca Chica is the name given to the end of the road, where motorists will find a stop sign at the point that the road ends, meeting the sand. There's the beach, period. Apparently the stop sign is meant to keep you from driving straight into the ocean."
