Abilene, Texas has garnered a reputation as a reliable base for military troops, both waiting to ship out and in limbo between combat and home. Utilized by both the United States Army and the United States Air Force, this town is proud of their veterans and active military members.
Citizens show this American pride with festivals, days of appreciation, town-wide discounts, parades, and museum exhibits of Army histories. But that’s not all that Abilene is known for.
This Texas town is a fun, family-friendly place to go for zoos, an awesome arts scene, and a handful of well-kept, lush-green parks.
