We loved the Fort Concho National Historical Site. Some well maintained original buildings, some with heavy duty refurbishment and some rebuilt. Shows a good cross-section of military like. Well worth a stop. Pay extra for the guided tour.

There are several parking areas around the fort, including across Oakes Street, as mentioned above. The farmer's market is not open yet for the season, so the only people parking there should be people who work in the area... More
