San Angelo Hotels

Brave the heat of the Texan sun to cheer on home teams at victorious football matches in town, cool off in air-conditioned glamorous megamalls, and unleash your artistic side on a walkthrough of chic art galleries and unique museums in the heart of San Angelo. Bordered by the sparkling surfaces of 3 impressive freshwater lakes, and the coarse brush of several expansive parks, this pretty Texan town holds a lot of appeal. Unusual street art, towering Texan-themed theaters, and lively main streets give it a real buzz.

Things to see

The Fort Concho National Historic Landmark on South Oakes Street is housed in one of the old cavalry barracks on a once-used parade ground. Where men once slept in rows of makeshift camping beds, there is now a living museum dedicated to all things military from America’s late 1800s. View heavy artillery, and the harness for the horses that carted it about, see the mess hall and squad room as it would have looked in its day, and visit the school house, chapel, and hospital in the far corner of this ancient military compound, totally renovated and complete with beds, desks, and pews. The Sunset Mall over on Sunset Drive is easy to spot thanks to its apt color scheme. Behind the burnt orange front entrance lie rows of trendy, exclusive, and affluent outlets, top high-street stores with their tempting window displays, pretty jewelers with glittering diamonds on soft velvet cushions, and music shops with the latest hits flooding from open doorways. Inside the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, a modern construction with an acoustically sympathetic rooftop, you can marvel at the colorful works of master painters adorning gallery walls, or lose yourself in the rising crescendo of classical masterpieces played in the concert hall.

Where to stay

Set along the banks of the trailing Concho River, San Angelo is a typical southern US town. Broad avenues, with verges that are scorched in the heat, are home to gas stations, concrete megamalls, and little independent shops along the main street. The heart of San Angelo is given over to the mammoth confines of the Goodfellow Airforce Base, while in the outskirts, trailing roadways lead into quiet residential estates lined with wooden clapboard houses and tiny, fenced yards.

How to get to San Angelo

Just southwest of San Angelo, the San Antonio International Airport is the largest major arrivals destination within easy driving distance of the town. The remainder of you journey can be made by Greyhound bus, and some of the local bus services also run this route. While you’re in San Antonio there’s very little need for any transport. If you don’t mind walking, you can get to nearly every attraction on foot. The alternative is to hire a car, which certainly gives the added freedom of being able to explore the surrounding area with ease.
