Visit Midland/Odessa.

Fly into Midland International Air and Space Port and you’ll quickly learn why a trip to two cities is better than one. This fast-growing pair of Texas burgs is full of charm, with each offering ample amenities and opportunities for travelers to explore. Even the most casual students of history will be intrigued by the sights of Midland. Get to know the region with a trip to the Museum of the Southwest®, home to fascinating exhibits of art, artifacts, and more. You can also get to know a few more of the city’s best-known exports with a visit to the George W. Bush Childhood Home.

Meanwhile, you’ll know you’re in downtown Odessa when you spot the beloved statue of Jack Ben Rabbit, which the town claims to be the world’s largest jackrabbit. Beyond this quirky symbol that nods to the area’s rural past, you’ll find a bustling city that still holds onto its small-town charm. Sit down for classic Texan fare at one of the city’s fine steakhouses, then catch the evening’s show at the Globe of the Great Southwest, a theater that’s closely modeled after Shakespeare’s own Globe in London. At the edge of downtown, you can spot another replica—this one of the Stonehenge ruins. Though, to be sure, this city on the rise has got plenty of unique flair and Southwestern flavor that’s all its own.

Not far from this pair of West Texas cities, you’ll also find a great number of natural wonders. Head due west and you’ll run into a pair of breathtaking national parks that straddle the Texas-New Mexico border. To the north is Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Eons ago, this was the coastline of a massive inland sea. Today, the park showcases a sprawling complex of caves and limestone chambers, offering visitors the chance to climb below ground among its stalactites and stalagmites, which possess an altogether Martian feel. Just outside the caves, outdoor lovers can walk along a number of hiking trails and take in the surrounding scenery and wildlife.

Make your way south from Carlsbad Cavern and, once within Guadalupe Mountains National Park’s wilderness, you may just feel as though you’ve stumbled onto the set of an old Western flick. Open plains dotted with desert shrubs make way for rugged cliff faces and towering mountain peaks in this landscape that will provide no shortage of photo opportunities. Of course, the park is not only for viewing purposes: A number of well-maintained trails offer adventurers the chance to summit one of the park’s peaks that overlook the Chihuahuan Desert. With hiking options for novices as well as experienced climbers, this nature preserve is a must-visit while you’re in West Texas.

No matter how you choose to enjoy your stay in Midland/Odessa and the surrounding area, Southwest Airlines makes it easy to get into town on your own time and without any hassle.
