Located in the heart of Texas oil country, Midland plays host to a striking downtown skyline, earning it the nickname of "The Tall City."

There's always something going on in Midland, and Midland vacation packages are the best way to experience the city.
All Midland vacations should begin in the historic downtown, where plenty of Midland hotels are situated. Visit the Yucca Theater, a famous theater dating back to the 1920s, or the Museum of the Southwest, which features art by native artists as well as by famous naturalist John J. Audubon. Just out of town, the Permian Basin Petroleum Museum is dedicated to the oil production that made Midland rich. A car rental in Midland will help get you there, where you can spend the day learning the history of Texas's black gold.
