Rev your engines in one of the rental cars in Abilene you can book here on CarRentals.com and drive to the city’s historic downtown district. There you’ll find sites like the Grace Museum, 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum, and the Paramount Theatre. Once you’ve obtained your culture fix, head over to the Abilene Zoo and say “howdy” to some of your furry friends. Of course, you’ll want to stop by Buffalo Gap Historic Village, which is just 14 miles south of Abilene. There you can take a peek back in time, into a frontier village in the early 1900s.
