Welcome to Robstown, the “Biggest Little Town in Texas!” Founded in 1907, Robstown is literally at the “crossroads of opportunity” since it is at the center of a strategically located transportation infrastructure that includes access to rail, highway and a water shipping port to move products nternationally. The North-South Union Pacific Railroad crosses the Kansas City Southern Railroad. This makes possible the transportation of products to and from Canada to Mexico and other parts of the world via the Port of Corpus Christi.
The more rapidly developing North-South I-69 facilitates the ground transportation of products from the tip of South Texas to the northeastern Michigan border with Canada. It crosses the East-West State Hwy. 44 in Robstown that connects Laredo, Texas to Corpus Christi and other key highway, rail and port facilities. It is conveniently located nine miles from the Corpus Christi International Airport and 15 miles from Downtown Corpus Christi and its beautiful Gulf of Mexico Coastal beaches. All terminals at the Port of Corpus Christi can be reached in less than 20 minutes.
Robstown is also fortunate in being surrounded by several accredited and well known educational institutions that offer associate, undergraduate and
graduate degrees. To its south just 20 minutes away is Texas A&M University-Kingsville and to the east just about the same time is Texas A&M University-
Corpus Christi and one of the best community colleges in the country, Del Mar College as well as other vocational training programs offered in
collaboration with the areas petroleum industry. All these institutions combined offer an array of associate, bachelor, masters and doctorate degrees in a variety of disciplines such as liberal arts, engineering, health sciences, pharmacy, education, business, health professions, music, theatre and the sciences.

If it’s authentic Mexican food you are looking for, you need go no further than the various Mexican food restaurants “taquerias” in town. The highlight of events in town primarily center on the county’s Richard M Borchard Regional Fairgrounds in a state of the art facility. Hardly a day goes by that some event is not taking place at the facility which offers both indoor and outdoor events. To name a few, concerts, banquets, weddings, regional training meetings, carnivals, gun shows, antique car shows, arts and crafts sales, livestock shows, music festivals, rodeos, community festivals and cook-offs. The year 2017 promises to be an even greater attraction with the opening of the new Corpus Christi Bay Outlet Mall located adjacent to the RMB Fairgrounds. Its first phase is expected to open with over 65 new businesses of well-known name brands and a variety of commodities that are favored by its shoppers.
