Midland is a quaint town midway between Fort Worth and El Paso on the Southern Plains of Texas. It’s home to the high-rise headquarters of multiple oil companies, but there’s much more to this city. Stop here on a Texas road trip to soak up the historic sites, museums and art. There’s plenty to do for those who love the outdoors, including parks and nature centers, not to mention opportunities for pampering and shopping.
