It's a running joke that most locals know about the perception of Abilene being boring. Heck, years ago, Monks Coffee Shop even came up with t-shirts that read 'Keep Abilene Boring'. But, in reality, Abilene is really not that boring. You just have to look at what the 'Key City' actually has to offer. In fact, many of those things don't even cost that much to do.

I compiled this list with a little help from our Facebook friends from The Morning After page. As you'll see, we have a little bit of everything in our city with a small-town feel. From miniature golf and disc golf to museums and parks, these things are not only fun, but they are inexpensive to do. I even discovered that there was a 'walking tour' in Abilene. I guess I've been sleeping under a rock because I honestly didn't know about that.

All of these things add up to the fact that not only is Abilene not boring, but there is also plenty to do, and you won't bust your wallet doing it.
