On the Way to the Mountains: Big Spring's 1930 Hotel Settles along the Bankhead Highway

We had occasion to travel down I-20 to our Texas Mountain Trail region, roughly the route of the historic Bankhead Highway this week and found ourselves stopping in Big Spring at the newly renovated (and absolutely beautiful) Hotel Settles.

Built in 1930 and on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel is seen briefly in the opening scenes of the 1969 film, "Midnight Cowboy."

We loved stepping inside and feeling transported into another (and elegant) era for travelers.

So, if you find yourself traveling to the mountains and our Texas Mountain Trail region from the DFW Metroplex, plan to stop for lunch in Big Spring's Hotel Settles!
