San Angelo Texas Attractions
This summer I was invited to visit San Angelo, Texas, and visit the city for a weekend and enjoy a short road trip. My husband Larry And I recently spent time in the area to celebrate our anniversary and had a great time exploring. Later we explored some of the areas where we found some great restaurants, shops and even a bit of hiking and camping.
The history of San Angelo's reinvention began at the beginning of the 20th century and expanded further by a walk along the Concho River. The 12 murals that today pay homage to the stagecoaches that the settlers brought to SanAngelo will be found on the walls of the town and you will get a glimpse of the life and times of the settlers and the stagecoach that brought them to San Angelo. Before we drove back to the old central fire station, we drove through the streets of the city centre and looked at the painted sheep and all the other nice things Sanangelo has to offer. Since 2002, a moving mural has adorned San Antonio, depicting the history of its city, its people and its history as a city.
