Big Spring Texas, located in Howard County, it is a large city compared to the surrounding areas but is not large by population if you are used to a big city.
There is a movie theater called the Tall City 15. It has fifteen screens and is pretty new. It shows all the movies that come out, but sometimes you have to wait a long time for some of the most popular ones. Inside, it’s really nice with comfortable seats and carpeting on the floors. The concession stand has a lot of good food, and can be a great venue when staying in town for a few days or longer.
Next to the movie theater there is an old fashioned theater called the Big Spring Municipal Auditorium. They show plays and other things like concerts, but they don’t happen very often so you have to pay attention to know what’s coming up next. The auditorium is really cool because it was built in the 1920s and looks exactly like it did then. Instead of carpeting on the ground, it has old fashioned linoleum that looks like wood planks. They have really cool lights hanging from the ceiling that look like metal flowers. It is a staple for the residents of Big Spring TX.

Visit Comanche Trail Park.

Visit Big Spring State Park.
