Nada is not what you think. The name is not Spanish, but is an Anglicized variation of Nadja, which we were told is the Czech word for hope.

Nada is the only town you'll see between Garwood and El Campo. There is, however, a lot of the Spanish "nada" between these two towns.


The store below is surprisingly clean and well stocked. Sandwiches are available and the service is friendly.
