San Angelo, Texas RV Road Trip
Some of you have seen her some of you haven't. However we bought a RV last month and finally got to take her out this weekend. We headed up to to San Angelo, Texas State Park for just the weekend. Its about a 3 hour and 45 minute drive. My brother just started school there.
I wanted to share some highlights from our trip. Since San Angelo is not too far from us and would make a great weekend get away. We stayed at the San Angelo State Park on the south side right near the lake.

Our first stop was Fort Concho Museum. Its a I guess village is the best way to put. There are a bunch of stone houses from the 1800's. There is a military bunk, a court martial/ clerical house, a house where the general's family lived etc. They are pretty cool, to step inside of history. My favorite house was the telephone museum. My kids got to see how phones first looked and evolved over time. It's $3 for adults and $2 for kids and a great way to spend a hour maybe too if you read every little thing!
We also made a stop at the San Angelo nature center. Its much smaller than any nature centers I have ever been too. However for $3 a person its a cute stop. They have a bunch of reptiles in tanks as well as some birds and small critters inside. We got to pet a baby skunk and chinchilla. Outside they have cages with 2 bobcats, a raccoon and a gray fox. Our favorite though was the giant tortoise that you can walk right up to and hang out with. My kids really got a kick out of him. It likely will only take you 30 to 45 min to check out but its a fun stop!
San Angelo has a really wonderful downtown. They even have a river walk which is just gorgeous. It is nothing like San Antonio's river walk. Its VERY clean, tons of walking room, people were fishing and the art work and kid stops where amazing. They have like little hidden things for the kids to find on the bridge and music sculptures the kids can play. The shops downtown were SO different and fun. Lots of antique stores and eclectic stops. We all really enjoyed it.
However my favorite part of traveling is always the campfire and spending time with family! Who doesn't love a good s'more and some time outdoors.
I highly recommend San Angelo, Texas for a fun vacation. I can't wait to go back, some things that we didn't get to see but really wanted to are:
The Railway Museum
The Art Museum
Lunch a Twisted Root Burger Co.
