Welcome to Odessa!
The Right Place in Texas!
On behalf of our Bureau and the entire city, we would like to thank you for taking the time to learn about Odessa.
Odessa is a vibrant, energetic city in West Texas where the sky, literally, is the only limit. It is a dynamic city that boasts fresh air, awe-inspiring sunsets and the friendliest people you'll ever find.
A visit to Odessa can put you in the audience of a production at the Globe Theatre, in the cockpit of a World War II fighter plane, or in the heart of the second largest meteor crater in the nation.
Our city also offers invaluable opportunities to discover other treasures of West Texas. Odessa has long been known as a gateway to Big Bend Country. In just a short few hours drive you can experience the unique culture of the region with a visit to the Big Bend National Park, the Balmorhea State Park, and the Monahans Sandhills State Park. Not to mention the excitement you will feel when visiting the other beautiful destinations of the region such as Fort Davis, Marfa, Marathon, Lajitas and more.
Don’t be shy. Stay as long as you like to learn more about the city where the sky is 'literally' the only limit.
