After making The Weather Channel's top 10 windiest cities list, Abilene is on another top list. In celebration of 40 years, Texas Highways magazine revealed their top 40 travel destinations in the Lone Star State, according to their readers.

Last fall, Texas Highways asked their readers to share their favorite places in Texas by phone, email, Facebook and other social media. After thousands of people responded, the magazine whittled down the top 40, and Abilene comes in at number 18.

Abilene was praised for its small-town feel, state park, zoo, shopping, history, and restaurants. It also got high points for the much talked about (good and bad) Frontier Texas. The 'Key City' comes in at number 18 on the list, while San Antonio tops it.
