Christmas at Fort Concho

Fort Concho is a wonderfully restore fort. Christmas at Fort Concho is a must attend. Well worth the drive to San Angelo. Reinactments, food and activities for children.

Learned a lot about the area and misinformation from Hollywood about the West and Indian Wars. Great volunteers with wide span of knowledge. Could tell they cared about what they do

Great fort in fairly good condition. The hospital display is authentic. The church/school is a different presentation than we had seen previously at Fort Davis. The entrance fee is reasonable. Each building (sometimes each room) had an in detail explanation of it's use and even the people who used it. There is plenty of free parking.

Take a tour of the barracks with the re en actors and feel you have stepped back in time. What a wonderfully preserved and restored example of life on the Texas frontier. If you are a History buff like me and get the chance to go this is a "must visit" place.

Visited Fort Concho in October and it was an unexpected pleasant experience. Nice walking around the area, informative signs and I learned a lot. Can be recommended for a person like me not that knowledged about Texas and american history.

We really enjoyed the day at Christmas at Old Fort Concho. There were numerous food trucks, picnic tables available, a lot of shopping available and great exhibits. We enjoyed the artillery demonstrations, live music, and visiting with everyone. We will go back again next year!

A must-see for the history buff. A restored military outpost from the late 1800's. They offer guided walking tours at specific times for a nominal fee. In downtown San Angelo, so there is no long drive to get there.

I was here 5 years ago and it seems that it was less to see this year. They removed some exhibits unlike 5 years ago.

I loved my visit there. I learned a lot. The man who talked to me about the artillery there at Fort Concho was very sweet and informative. I forgot his name but he is a retired Navy man. He was such a sweetheart. It is definitely worth the stop. I hope I can go back in December for the Winter... More

What we could see was very interesting. Only wish more of the buildings were open. And slightly upset at some of the modern renovations, however will try to return for Christmas at Fort Concho.
