Destination of The Year

San Angelo

Near the center of Texas, San Angelo possesses the perfect ratio of big city and Old West allure. Historic preservation abounds, from 19th century architecture and sites along the Texas Forts Trail and the annual Stock Show & Rodeo to murals of Paintbrush Alley that pay tribute to the region’s ranching and oil and gas heritage. Modern attractions include a city ballet, symphony, the acclaimed Pop Art Museum, and award-winning Riverwalk. This fall, the city will also host Air Race I, an international Formula I event.
