Downtown Abilene is an eclectic community that holds appeal to families, young professionals and empty nesters alike. Known throughout literary circles as the Storybook Capital of America, downtown is home to numerous child-focused attractions and festivals, including over two dozen bronze storybook character sculptures. Millennials are attracted to unique gathering spots that place an emphasis on hand-crafted items, from cigars to cocktails, beer and elevated cuisine. And, those with more refined taste are drawn to performances by the community’s own philharmonic as well as national touring acts.
