Calendar of Events
Greetingsfrom the Mayor
Alpine is one of the most delightful cities in Texas. Nestled in a beautiful valley at an elevation of 4500 feet, Alpine’s mild weather makes it an attractive year round destination. Alpine offers amenities that a visitor to the Big Bend region seeks: restored historic hotels, cozy bed and breakfasts, and restaurant options from fine dining to the best Tex-Mex anywhere. Alpine is home of Sul Ross Sate University where you can find the Museum of the Big Bend, Intercollegiate Rodeo, Theatre of the Big Bend, art galleries and the Alpine Fighting Bucks and much more. At the hub of a network of scenic highways, Alpine is ideal for motorcycle and bicycle enthusiast alike. Night life includes live music, trendy bars, and some of the best star gazing in North America.
The experience does not stop at the city limits. Alpine sits at the cross roads of Highways 90 and 118 making it an easy 30 minute drive to Historic Fort Davis and twenty minutes further to McDonald Observatory, home of the World’s third most powerful telescope and its outstanding visitor’s program. Drive 80 miles south Alpine on Highway 118 and enter the Big Bend National Park, 1100 square miles of desert mountain wonderland. There are many more reasons to make Alpine your vacation destination, the hard part is finding a reason to leave. www.visitalpinetx.com
