Moving to Abilene, TX-Old West Charm with Contemporary Flair
Let us help you make moving to Abilene, TX the best new experience of the year!
If you are planning on moving to Abilene, TX later this year, this article will serve as a guide to a few highlights about the area to  get you started in researching your new home-to-be.  If you're like many Abilene newcomers, you are moving from a more populated region, and you may not be accustomed to the simple lifestyle offered by this Texas gem.  This isn't necessarily a bad thing.  A few days after moving to Abilene, TX, you will certainly start to become addicted to the warm southern hospitality and laid back approach that has become a hallmark of this appealing community.  

Tips For Your Hat

If you're moving to Abilene from a state faraway from Texas, you may not own a proper hat.  Go ahead and price some cowboy hats for everyone in the family.  This is not only a fun idea to erase the blues of leaving your current home, but it is a great way to immerse yourself into the culture of classic Abilene style.  Like many cities across old western Texas, Abilene was established by cattlemen.  To this day, the city is proud of the pioneer spirit, while still maintaining a willingness to surge into the future of modern America.  One of the biggest events of the year is the 10-day West Texas Fair & Rodeo every September.  Cowboys and cowboy hats are welcome.

The East Side of the Old West

Just because cattlemen founded this quaint American city in the 1800's doesn't mean they are playing catch-up today.  This area of the country is riddled with higher-level technical schools.  On the east side of the city, a cutting edge facility known as the Texas State Technical College of West Texas continues to make technological strides in areas ranging from digital signage to diesel fuel technology.  If you haven't completed your degree at your local university, you might find it is time to go back!  Check out one of the seven area schools offering upper-level degrees in Abilene.  The tuition rates in this area of the country are very competitive, and the education and programming is comparable to many more expensive schools in other parts of the country.

Why are you Moving to Abilene, TX?

  • Abilene is located near the center of Texas, almost due south of the eastern edge of the Texas panhandle.  It offers easy access to a plethora of city centers just a day-trip away.  Drive two hours westward on Interstate 20 for instance, and you can enjoy all that Dallas/Ft. Worth has to offer without dealing with the hassles of living in the fourth largest metro area in the U.S.
  • Abilene is one of the richest centers of "old west" culture in the country.  Every year Abilene's western heritage is showcased at the Western Heritage Classic, a weekend festival that celebrates the country-western lifestyle. 
  • If you have kids competing at the high school level, this is where they want to play.  High school sports are very prevalent in Abilene.  The city's teams have won dozens of district championships and state titles over the past several years at both high school and junior high school levels.
  • Speaking of public schools, Abilene has the highest ranked public school system in Texas.  The school district is in the top twenty best school districts in the country.  This is based on a number of criteria such as average spending per student, pupil-to-teacher ratio, and graduation rate statistics.
  • The Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene is 100% powered by pollution-free wind power, making it one of the "greenest" locations in the country.
