Some of our guests love to go to the train station (not like the Yellow stone reference, the real train station 🙂 You can go to the train station and watch trains come and go.

One of the favorite activities enjoyed by locals and guests of Big Spring Texas is to go swimming at the lake. It can really cool you off from that summer Texas sun.

There are a lot of places to swim, but most people prefer the lakes to swim. At the lake there’s always a good breeze blowing across the water and it helps cool you off even more.

Big Spring is a city in and the county seat of Howard County, Texas, United States, at the crossroads of U.S. Highway 87 and Interstate 20. With a population of 27,291 at the 2010 census, it is the largest city between Midland to the west, Abilene to the east, Lubbock to the north, and San Angelo to the south. Big Spring was established as the county seat of Howard County in 1882; it is the largest community in the county. The city got its name from the single, large spring that issued into a small gorge between the base of Scenic Mountain and a neighboring hill in the southwestern part of the city limits. Although the name is sometimes still mistakenly pluralized, it is officially singular.**
