    I found this beautiful hidden gem of a garden under a recommendation from my hotel's front desk agent Kim at the Econo Lodge San Angelo, that was newly renovated in November. It was a nice little walk from the hotel (about 8 to 10 minutes) on a crisp sunny morning. I had my hot breakfast sandwich and fresh coffee on the go from the hotel with me and ended up eating my breakfast at the bench in front of the garden. So peaceful and calming. Breakfast and coffee there was such a nice experience. This garden is free to the public so I didn't have to spend anything, and my hotel was one of the most affordable hotels with hot breakfast and coffee in San Angelo so I had a very affordable trip that made my pre-Thanksgiving trip a great experience.

    Fort Concho is a great place to walk around and see how soldiers lived "back in the day." It really good do with more signage and a little more pizzaz. Most of the interesting signs were done by local boy scouts for their Eagle projects. These are very well done and very interesting, but I felt the museum could do more with docents to bring the museum more to life.

    Again, this is another recommendation from the friendly new staff at the newly renovated Econo Lodge San Angelo. I've never visited a bordello before and a historic one at that. Miss Hattie's Bordello Museum is preserved just as it was when it was in operations over a hundred years ago. What a true gem to the ladies of the night's history.

    The Concho River Walk is just what it says on the tin. It's a RIVER WALK. The planners have executed a wonderful, lengthy, set of paved walkways on both sides of the Concho River, with lots of interesting pieces of public art and differently themed parks that are sure to be interesting to someone. They have chosen to limit commercial development, so the focus is on the river not the restaurants.

    The San Angelo SP has two entrance the North and South. The South Entrance you have access to bird blinds, Boating Area (OC Fisher) and various camp sites. The North Entrance has hiking trails for biking, horseback riding and trails. The park is spacious and you have a high chance to seeing wildlife. On our recent visit we seen Longhorn, armadillo and deer. The entrance fee for the park is $4 a day, kids 12 and under are free.

    What a fun quirky place to visit. I will go again the next time I'm in San Angelo. Watch artists at work, enjoy a meal, shop. This was an unexpected treasure!

    Goodfellow AFB is a must visit for military fans and families. Finding out that I came from a military family, the staff at the Econo Lodge San Angelo recommended that I stop by and visit the Goodfellow AFB for a visit while I was in town. It is close enough to the hotel, that is newly renovated, but I recommend driving there.

    While visiting in the San Angelo area I took my three grand children to the Nature Center. It was a fun inexpensive experience. There are enough exhibits to keep all ages entertained.

    On a visit to San Angelo this November, I had a chance to see some of these historic murals around downtown. I would have missed them if the front desk agent at the newly renovated Econo Lodge San Angelo, Kim, had not suggested them to me. The first mural was just about a 5 to 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The other ones were located throughout downtown (again about 10 to 15 minutes walk away from the hotel) or a 5 minutes drive away. These murals are detailed and gives a sense of San Angelo's past from Fort Concho to Goodfellows Air Force Base. I travel a lot and rarely have I seen an array of murals detailing a city's history in this way. This is a true treasure. Again, this is a free sight to see.

    The museum was close to Fort Concho and just minutes away from our hotel the Econo Lodge. I like how close everything is around the downtown area so it was easy to visit most of the sights in a day. The Museum was a nice one to see pottery work and local artists displays.

    Great place to spend two or so hours. Wonderful for all ages and worth the trip. Kids can run and climb and has interesting historical aspects of city.

    Stopped for a beer here and ended up having several as we met so many fun people who also came in for a beer (or several).

    Very fun indoor atmosphere with seating at the bar as well as along a window. It was easy to turn chairs around and talk with other people who enjoy beer.

    There was a food truck outside, Rey Rays BBQ. Although we did it have food from it, from the looks of the plates we saw it looked delicious.

    We walked to the nearby San Angelo Blues Festival at an outdoor venue, with some of our new friends, and enjoyed some great blues music from a variety of bands.

    Close to the hotel I was staying at, the newly-renovated Econo Lodge San Angelo at the gateway to downtown, I found this alley along my drive towards the main part of downtown. It was a nice surprise, but could had have more art.

    Located on the south side across the Concho river from downtown San Angelo is the official city pool, Love Municipal Pool. Admission is $5/person, age 2 and under are free. Please note: NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINKS are allowed inside. For the budget conscious, eat before you go and use the free water fountain. Concessions are pricey and are inside a corner building by the bathrooms where seating is available. The bathrooms are large with plenty of room to change and shower. There are multiple seating areas around the pool, from stone tiered bleacher type seats to lawn chairs for sunbathing to tables with chairs around them. Shade is limited. The pool starts at a zero depth entry with water fountains for young children. The shallow end is large and has many water features and is divided into several unique areas, some with in-water seating. The deep end is only four feet deep. There are two large water slides but no diving boards. There are several entry/exit points around the pool. The pool can be very crowded during weekday afternoons with visiting day care centers and youth camps. There is no dedicated parking lot, parking is parallel and free on Avenue A. It is worth a visit!
