Hello, my husband and I are thinking about moving to the Abilene area, but we are not sure if that area will work for us. We would like to be close enough to HSU to go to basketball games this fall, we are willing to drive about an hour to get there- it does not have to be in town. We also need a place that offers a pet friendly environment, would really like to have a scenic area, and need somewhere that humidity is low. Is there such a place?

Thanks.

There are several lakes within an hour of Abilene, and the humidity gets lower as you go west or northwest--if that helps.

West Texas has very low humidity. It's quite dry. Humidity should pose no problem for you in the Abilene area unless you are moving from further west than Abilene. For instance, Albuquerque and El Paso are much less humid than Abilene. Going west from Abilene into the high desert the humidity decreases.

There are several very pleasant small towns in the Abilene area. It all depends on what you are looking for.

The humidity doesn't vary significantly for places within an hour of Abilene. I would say the most scenic areas around there are Albany, which is next to a range of hills (and just seems nicer than the average small Texas town), and anywhere south of Abilene toward the Callahan Divide (a range of hills and mesas).

Like Westerner92 said above, there's an area just south of Abilene that is more scenic. A lot of people live out in that area near Buffalo Gap and Tuscola and drive into Abilene for work. Some of the newer subdivisions just south and southeast of Abilene have acre sized lots or larger if space for animals would be needed.

Thanks for the info. We are looking for a scenic area, so I will check the Albany area. One more question, does the weather change alot day to day? It is 90 degrees and sunny one day, the next can be low 70s with rain here.

Also, does anyone know where I can look for any houses or apartments for rent in the area?
