San Angelo, Texas Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Near the geographical center of Texas, San Angelo was founded in the late 1860s as a frontier town and has grown from its gun-slinging, saloon-building past to a pleasant oasis. The downtown features uniquely-San Angelo shopping, dining and nightlife. Running through the heart of the town is the Concho River. The award-winning river walk was named a Great Place in America in 2017 and features a scenic four-mile jogging and walking trail and nine-hole walking golf course. Along the river walk, visitors can experience Art in Uncommon Places, including numerous mosaic pieces. Lustrous Concho pearls, from freshwater mussels, are found in the natural waterways of the Concho River and its tributaries. The pearls come in natural colors ranging from soft pinks to vivid lavenders. You can find virtually every shape and size in jewelry shops throughout the city. Located on the opposite of the Concho River from the historic downtown is Fort Concho National Historic Landmark. Once home to the Buffalo Soldiers, Fort Concho continues to showcase the rich, western history of the region, offering special events throughout the year including a Regional Cavalry Competition in April and Christmas at Old Fort Concho in December. San Angelo is truly an oasis in west Texas, featuring Lake Nasworthy, as well as O.C. Fisher and Twin Buttes Reservoirs. They provide a variety of water recreation and fishing to the outdoor enthusiasts. San Angelo State Park encompasses four ecological zones (Hill Country, Rolling Plains, High Plains and Trans-Peco) and offers 50 miles of trails in its 7,563 acres. The park is home to a portion of both the official Texas state longhorn herd and the official Texas state bison herd. The park is also notable for bird and wildlife watching. San Angelo can be the starting point of several day trips to nearby communities, including Bronte, home of historic Fort Chadbourne, and Christoval, home to the Hummer House, a hummingbird wildlife habitat, Christoval Vineyards, and Mount Carmel Hermitage Monastery. Located on the northern border of the Chihuahuan Desert and on the fringes of the Hill Country, San Angelo is between Interstates I-10 and I-20. Highways 67, 87 and 277 connect to the city.
