We stayed at the Abilene KOA for a couple days as a part of an extended trip from Texas to California. Immediately after getting escorted to our site, we unhooked the Jeep and headed into Abilene to check out Frontier Texas and the food at a nearby restaurant that was recommended.
We really enjoyed Frontier Texas, which is a multi-million dollar award winning museum that helps you experience life in Texas from 1780 to 1880. Using state-of-the-art technology, Frontier Texas introduces you to eight people who share their experiences during that era which included fighting the white man, hunting buffalo and herding cattle, living a hard prairie life, searching for a wife and daughter captured by the Indians, or surviving a gunfight. Very impressive and well done and well worth going out of your way to visit.
The following day, we enjoyed a round of golf at Maxwell Golf Course - use this Abilene Golf Map to find a course and read our reviews of the courses we have played. Diamondback Golf Club is a fun course in good condition. After golf it was off to the Abilene Zoo. The Zoo is small but worth a couple hour visit. You'll find birdies (which we couldn't find on the golf course), giraffes that get up close and personal, rhinos, monkeys, lions, snakes, creepy crawlers, and more.
A few miles from Abilene KOA, we found a fun honky tonk called the Lucky Mule. The night we were there they had two outstanding country bands and a fun and lively crowd.
