“The Friendly Frontier” and “Keep Abilene Beautiful” (Abilene slogans)

“The Friendly Frontier” has been an Abilene city slogan since 2004.
“Keep Abilene Beautiful” has been an Abilene organization since 1986 and has nothing to do with another city’s slogan of “Keep Austin Weird.”     
Abilene Convention & Visitors Bureau
Welcome to Abilene, Texas
Some may think the west begins in Fort Worth, but Abilene is where it’s in full gallop. The spirit of the Texas Frontier lives and breathes in Abilene, which in the span of a century transformed itself from tent city to cultural center, cow-town to college town, all without losing the flavors of the past.

Abilene parades its heritage in a collection of venues designed to both educate and entertain. Home to 115,745 friendly people, three universities and Dyess Air Force Base, Abilene preserves the traditional heritage of the old West while providing all the advantages of a contemporary city.

Abilene is located near the center of Texas just 150 miles west of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
