I've passed through Van Horn, Texas many times and I always make this a stop for the night on my way east or west along I-10. It sits between Ft. Stockton and El Paso with each of these cities being one hundred plus miles in the opposing direction from Van Horn. I always stop at Chuey's for dinner, drop by the Dollar General store and then I catch a peaceful nights rest while listening to the sound of the freight trains as they move along the rails parallel to the main down town street. Rise early and bask in the glory of a sunrise over west Texas. Spectacular.
