Abilene Vacations

Located in an agricultural area of Texas about 160 miles southwest of Fort Worth, Abilene serves as a cultural center for the surrounding areas. It is home to many theaters and museums, as well as a host of higher education institutions. Vacations to Abilene are sure to be a cultural experience full of classic Texan fun.

Major Attractions

Abilene has quite a selection of historical buildings. The Buffalo Gap Historic Village just south of town is a museum comprised of 15 outdoor structures with artifacts dating to the late-19th and early-20th centuries. The Abilene Zoo, another popular attraction, has hundreds of species of animals. There are also a variety of arts attractions, such as the Grace Museum, the Center for Contemporary Arts, the Abilene Philharmonic, and the historic Paramount Theatre. If you're outdoorsy, the Abilene park system includes 29 parks, while the Abilene State Park located southwest of town has trails aplenty. Most visitors flying into the area book Abilene rental cars to explore the outlying points of interest.

Recurring Festivals and Events

Abilene plays host to a number of annual traditions every year. The West Texas Fair and Rodeo, held at the Taylor County Expo Center in mid-September for 10 days, features all the county fair stalwarts as well as historical exhibits. The same venue is home to the Western Heritage Classic in early May. In true Texas spirit, it features a rodeo, a chuck wagon cook-off, matched horse racing, cowboy poetry, and other fun activities. Abilene vacations just wouldn't be complete without a visit to one of these classic fairs.

The town can get busy during these times, so if you need Abilene hotels and flights be sure to take advantage of Travelocity's Price Guarantee. Travelocity will match a lower price and refund the difference if you can find cheaper Abilene vacation packages.
