The City of Abilene, Texas, is located approximately 180 miles due
west of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. We're situated in west

"the Future Great City of West Texas, " Abilene was established in
March 1881 upon the completion of the Texas & Pacific Railroad.
Abilene's civic progressiveness and its logistic function as a
regional center for distribution, commerce, industry,
transportation, and education provide an assortment of lodging,
dining, cultural, and shopping opportunities typically found only
in much larger cities. Abilene boasts a proud military history,
having been home once to a U.S. Army base and later a U.S. Air

something to do, with two annual rodeos, several outdoor festivals
