At Amistad Motors, our team is proud to serve the community of Fort Stockton, Texas. With our local residents in mind, we’ve put together a list of our favorite summer attractions.
Texas summers bring the heat, but we know how to beat it. Head to the Comanche Springs Pool and Pavilion to cool off in the largest spring in the Comanche system, the Big Chief Spring. The site also hosts the annual Water Carnival the third weekend of July. For those with young children, try the Matthew Quiroz Splash Park.
History buffs should plan a visit to the Annie Riggs Museum. Peruse the rooms filled with original artifacts, preserved from the museum’s hotel and boarding house days, or take a walk in the desert garden.
When you’re done with the Annie Riggs Museum, head across the street to the wine tasting room in the historical Grey Mule Saloon, where you can enjoy local Texas wine alongside charcuterie boards.
For more old-timey fun, take a tour of the Old Pecos County Jail to experience an original 1883 holding cell and view a museum dedicated to local law enforcement. If you’re driving around town, be sure to stop and say hello to Paisano Pete — he deserves a little attention for being the world’s largest roadrunner statue.
Whatever you do, our friendly staff at Amistad Motors wishes you and your family a fun-filled, safe summer.
