San Angelo, Texas: Former Wild West Outpost on the Concho River
The Concho River snakes through the wild-west town of San Angelo. Many years ago, the river separated the bordellos and casinos on one side from Fort Concho, a 19th-century outpost built to protect frontier settlements in West Texas. Today the Concho River is flanked by a charming river walk, and the nightlife along Historic Concho Avenue has transformed into trendy boutiques and restaurants. For a taste of the gun-slingin’ frontier life, sign up for a tour of Miss Hattie’s Bordello Museum.
San Angelo is also known for being a lush oasis in otherwise dry west Texas. Go for a stroll through San Angelo State Park, which sits on the shores of the O.C. Fisher Lake. The park is a popular spot for fishing and boating, as well as mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding on more than 50 miles of multi-purpose trails. Keep your eyes peeled for interesting trailside sights, including petroglyphs, fossilized footprints, Texas longhorn cattle, horned lizards, and even buffalo.
