San Angelo Travel Guide, Texas

San Angelo, Travel Guide – General Information

San Angelo is one of America’s hidden cities. Located in the emptiness of the desert, this small town used to be an outpost of civilization during de late 19th century. Army men, tradesmen, cowboys and so on came in here in order to visit the saloons, the casinos and, eventually, the brothels. Of course, nowadays San Angelo is a more tourist-friendly city, since its main street is full of boutiques from which you can buy souvenirs, instead of casinos and brothels. Because this is one of the few West Texas oases, San Angelo should be on your road trip pit stops.

San Angelo, Travel Guide – Means of Transportation

We mentioned earlier in the San Angelo Travel Guide that this city should be an important point in your road trip. Of course, like any other touristy attraction, you can get here by plane –San Angelo Regional Airport offers 4 flights a day, to Dallas airport. Nevertheless, I believe that a car is a much more interesting way of reaching San Angelo, since the scenery is quite aesthetical, from an artistic point of view. In San Angelo you can either rent a car, get a taxi – there are 3 major taxi companies in San Angelo, or you could use the local transportation system. However, since this town is not very big and since you have many things to see in it, you might as well bring on a bike on your road trip.

San Angelo, Travel Guide – Places to Visit

There are lots of things to do and places to visit once you are in San Angelo. Any San Angelo Travel Guide should mention Concho Fort, established in 1867, a place that now gives a unique sight of the local history. Another place you should visit is The International Water Lilly Garden, an exhibition in which you can admire Water Lillis from all around the world. Then you could take a walk, or eat, or shop in the numerous boutiques on Concho Avenue, San Angelo’s oldest street – this is yet another way in which you can get acquainted with the town’s past. Also, in here you could stroll in many gardens and parks, San Angelo being the home of San Angelo State Park. Also, you could visit the State University Planetarium, which is the fourth largest planetarium in the US. There are many places to visit and things to do in San Angelo.

And, once you have finished visiting it, you can continue your journey to any of the US neighboring towns and cities – you can check out the Abilene Travel Guide or the San Antonio Travel Guide.
