This article is a part of the 2022 Fall Travel Guide, a sponsored collection brought to you by our travel advertising partners. You can find more fall travel destinations and events here.

As the hot summer temperatures begin to drop and the leaves start their transformation into beautiful fall colors, cooler road trips grow from ideas into realities. Discover San Angelo, the oasis in West Texas, where a leisurely stroll along the Concho Riverwalk starts you off with a calming experience and gets you in touch with nature.

Then find yourself in historic downtown and see firsthand why San Angelo was named the Visual Arts Capital of Texas. Historic murals highlighting the city’s history are scattered throughout the community, with many on outside walls in the downtown. You and your family can also enjoy the outdoors as you visit and capture those Instagrammable moments at the Pop Art Museum, located in a former bowling alley, and Paintbrush Alley, an alleyway displaying art from more than 50 artists with a salute to the movie, Giant. Only a few minutes away are family-friendly museum options including the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Fort Concho National Historic Landmark, and the Railway Museum of San Angelo.

Your family can enjoy events from culinary to cultural. Food trucks, live music performances, diverse celebrations, unique conventions, cowboy experiences, and outdoor artists are a few of the events starting the autumn season off in this beautiful west Texas town. Discover San Angelo for yourself!
