Don't be surprised if you see a few rabbit symbols around town—the jack rabbit is Odessa's unofficial mascot. And like its speedy symbol, this small city in western Texas is moving quickly, too. It was named the third-fastest-growing small city in the United States by Forbes.
Located 11.5 miles from Odessa, the Midland International Air and Space Port handles passengers bound for Odessa as well as flights to Midland, a neighboring city. The airport is the headquarters of the Commemorative Air Force and the American Airpower Heritage Museum, and if you're not careful, you'll end up spending half your vacation there. Tear yourself away from the intrigues by your arrival gate so you can find a cheap car rental in Odessa.
Several different companies have offices at the airport, so you can compare Odessa car rentals before embarking on the brief 17-minute drive into town. It may be tempting to take a taxi, but outlying attractions like the White-Pool House east of downtown will make you wish you were more mobile. Built in 1887, the White-Pool House is the oldest structure in town. It has served as a historical house museum since 1984. The Meteor Crater southwest of the city is another popular destination in the area, but you'll need to rent a car in Odessa to get there.
The Presidential Museum and Leadership Library is uniquely devoted to the office of the president rather than any single president. It also features displays about the presidents of the former Republic of Texas. The Texon Santa Fe Depot in West Odessa is now a museum devoted to showcasing the old West and railroad history, while the Parker House Museum educates visitors on the area's ranching history.
