While it’s not the most well-known city in Texas, San Angelo is arguably the most beautiful. Located nearly in the direct center of the Lone Star State, San Angelo is nestled among OC Fisher Lake, Lake Nasworthy, and the Twin Buttes Reservoir—making it a scenic place to live.
Our city is known as the home of Concho Avenue, as the United States constructed Fort Concho there to house cavalry protecting the frontier. The city was originally named Santa Angela, after the wife of the founder, when it was established at the junction of the North and South Concho Rivers. Now, the city is the home of Angelo State University and the Goodfellow Air Force Base.
Despite being out in the secluded Concho Valley, there are plenty of attractions that draw visitors to San Angelo. Fort Concho has been remarkably restored and is a prime opportunity to see history come alive, where you can take a tour of the barracks. Nature lovers spend hours getting involved in the hands-on exhibits at the San Angelo Nature Center, followed by walks along the International Water Lily Garden at Civic League Park. And for a different side of history, Miss Hattie’s Bordello Museum is must-see.
Texans love their food, and for us in San Angelo, it’s no different. There’s over a thousand places to grab a bite in our town, with the most popular being the Cork & Pig Tavern, The Concho Pearl, and The Grill. There is no shortage of barbeque or Tex-Mex diners in San Angelo.
