Shamrock, Texas

The U-Drop Inn was built in the 30’s in shamrock, Texas. It has quite a few nicknames, some of those being the Tower Station U-Drop Inn and Tower Café. It was a popular spot for quite some time, especially for the unique and exquisite architecture, but it closed in the early 90s. Eventually, it was picked up by a historic foundation who made sure it did not fall apart. They took the building and opened a museum, gift shop, and even the town’s city of commerce. If you go there today, you can see all that plus a new Tesla Charging station that was recently installed. But most importantly, you will recognize this building from the animated movie, Cars, which features the building in the local town.
