About West Texas

West Texas generally encompasses the arid and semiarid lands west of a line drawn between the cities of Wichita Falls, Abilene, and Del Rio. There are forty six counties included in this area. West Texas receives much less rainfall than the rest of Texas and has an arid or semiarid climate, requiring most of its scant agriculture to be heavily dependent on irrigation.

Where is West Texas?

West Texas is a loosely defined region within the state of Texas. The broadest definitions of West Texas take it to be everything west of the 98th Meridian, including the Texas Panhandle, South Plains, and the Far West or Trans-Pecos regions as well.

We have dedicated pages for those specific regions, so here "West Texas" will refer to a band of counties running from Wichita Falls in the north to Abilene, then San Angelo, and then finally to Del Rio in the south.

The area around San Angelo includes Coke, Concho, Crockett, Irion, Reagan, Schleicher, Sterling, Sutton, and Tom Green Counties. And the area around Abilene includes Fisher, Haskell, Jones, Kent, Knox, Mitchell, Nolan, Runnels, Scurry, Shackelford, Stephens, Stonewall, Taylor, and Throckmorton Counties.

For the full list of counties included in this area of West Texas, see the links at the bottom of the page.

Also, make sure not to confuse West Texas with the town of West, Texas, located in McLennan County north of Waco. 

West Texas Landscape & Climate

West Texas is relatively rugged and arid compared to most other parts of Texas, especially further west towards the Chihuahuan Desert. The area is also mostly flat, consisting of gently rolling plains, prairies, and mesquite savanna. The land becomes more hilly on the Edwards Plateau, towards the Texas Hill Country.

West Texas Land Uses & Economy

West Texas is famous for oil and its dry rugged terrain.

Most of West Texas is classified as an arid or semi-arid desert, and so, agriculture in the area relies significantly on irrigation.

Other prominent sectors in the West Texas economy are cattle ranching, and oil or gas extraction. The expansion of the latter accounts for the "oil boom" in the area in recent years.

The major urban centers in central West Texas are Abilene and San Angelo. The main transport routes through West Texas are the I-20 and I-10.

Lakes in West Texas

Despite the dryness, the area is also home to a number of lakes, like OC Fisher Lake, Lake Nasworthy, Oak Creek Reservoir, and E.V. Spence Reservoir.

Near Del Rio, the Amistad National Recreation Area and the Amistad Reservoir are popular attractions.
