What to see along I-20 Texas?

Two hard days driving to get out of the snow and cold, I'm ready to slow down and enjoy the long trip west. I missed a lot of history in school but I know places like Pecos, Midland and Sweetwster are famous western towns. Just hoping someone might know of something interesting in one of those towns.

Free at last and thanks,

Robby and Donna

Don't know much about things to see along I-20 but if you can get down to Hwy 90 to the south I would have several suggestions.

From Abilene West through Sweetwater ... lots of windmills. From Sweetwater West past Pecos ... lots of oil field activity with related traffic. Other than that, I'm sorry to say, there is not much tourist type activity in the area. The Bush family home, Petroleum and Chaparral Racing Museum in Midland, the Presidential Museum in Odessa, the West of the Pecos Museum in Pecos ... but, I'm not sure I would make a special stop for any of those. Have lived in the area all my life, maybe I'm just jaded

Back up to Albany, Tx and the Fort Griffin State Historic Site located about 15 miles north of town. Great little campground, quiet, zero TV or cell coverage. Home of the UT Longhorn hurd. My uncle donated the land that the interpretive center is on. Also, check out The Old Jail n town. It is a mighty fine art museum in Albany.

Another place would be to spend a few days at Balmorhea State Park located just off I10 and is south of Pecos. Very nice park.

Just a few ideas.

We went to Hanger 25 in Big Spring and spent a nice hour. We're now in Pacos, the trucking capital of the world.

I graduated from high school in Pecos in 1972 ... It hasn't changed much

Enjoy the trip! We are heading West from Midland on Monday.

Hate that I didn't finds your post in time to get a couple of suggestions to you! Well, maybe on the flip side. ....

Frontier Texas! in Abilene is a great place to see. Was WELL worth the 3 hour drive we made just to see it. 625 North 1st Street. Ph: 325-437-2800. Also, the Abilene Zoo is

Also, Big Spring State Park on an evening when there is a star party. The park is right in town, hop and a skip off I-20.
