Explore Abilene, home to the official 16 minute rush hour, the world’s best barbeque and 117,000 friendly folks. Songwriter Bob Gibson said it best with his 1956 tune, “Abilene, Abilene, prettiest town I’ve ever seen.” This song conjures up memories for many generations. We invite you to make your own memories of our city and we happen to have a few suggestions to get you started.
Find your inner cowboy at our world-renowned Frontier Texas! and experience the Old West like you’ve never seen. Discover your wild side onboard the Abilene Zoo’s Safari Express. Catch the harmonious reunion of culture and heritage while strolling through museums, galleries and specialty shops in downtown Abilene.
Immerse yourself in Texas traditions: rodeos, festivals, culture and cuisine; there’s always something going on in Abilene and all served with a special West Texas flavor. Abilene, where memories are made.
