When you are ready for a vacation, come to Abilene, the "Frontiering" center of college and cultural life in Central Texas. Abilene car rentals give you the freedom to visit the numerous evangelical churches the area is known for. This city of over 120,000 people is in touch with its Christian roots. Of the six universities, three are religiously affiliated, including the famous Abilene Christian University.
The airport is 12 miles from most Abilene hotels in the city center, so it's a good thing there are several places to rent a car. Check out car rentals in Abilene and start touring the area. One of your first stops should be Frontier Center, where this interactive museum lets you experience holographic wolf attacks and poker games gone wrong. Try not to be overwhelmed by the buffalo stampede! This is pioneer living at its most authentic. Once your heart calms down, head over to the Abilene Zoo, where you can experience a wetlands boardwalk or watch black rhinos graze in the Texas sun. Military fans will want to explore the three floors of the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum for "Hellcats" WWII memorabilia, or head 20 minutes west and tour the Dyess Air Force Base Museum. Military and ghost enthusiasts alike should drive 20 minutes north and walk among the Fort Phantom Hill ruins of an army post from 1851. End your day noshing on Texas barbecue and tipping back a Texas tea.
