Soon my family and I will travel once again to Odessa Texas. We are from there and our parents and siblings still live there. We would probably live there too, but there is no military installations there! Growing up there I always heard people say that there is nothing to do there, but that isn’t true. Here are a few things you can do if you live there or find yourself visiting there.
The Globe of the Great Southwest – The globe theater is a replica of Shakespeare’s globe theatre. They put on many plays here and they also host a Shakespeare festival every year.
The Permian Playhouse – They put on a variety of plays and musicals throughout the year. Many years ago I saw Fiddler on the Roof here and it was very good.
The Commemorative Air Force museum – includes planes from several foreign countries and other military conflicts since World War II. They host an air show every year.
Midland Rockhounds – They are the areas minor league baseball team. The games are very fun and kid friendly. They have a very nice playground for the kids. They do a great fireworks show for the 4th of July.
Odessa Jackalopes – They are the area’s minor league hockey team. The games are kid friendly and fun.
