Fort Davis Travel Guide
Welcome to Fort Davis!
For a taste of Old West Texas, look no further than the town of Fort Davis. Not only does this town feature many historic attractions, but it is also a recreational paradise that has remained largely untouched by modernization. Fort Davis is located in the Chihuahuan Desert at an elevation of 5050 ft (1539 m), making it the highest town in Texas. History buffs appreciate Fort Davis National Historic Site, where one of the best preserved frontier forts is found. For those fond of the great outdoors, Davis Mountains State Park is an ideal destination, as it spans over 2,700 acres (1093 ha) and offers stunning views of ranch land, canyons and mountains. Camping, birdwatching and biking are just a few of the many activities enjoyed at the park. The Davis Mountains Hummingbird Festival is an annual three-day event in August that celebrates the many varieties of hummingbirds that frequent the area.
