Odessa is located in Ector County, Texas. It is a large city that's surrounded by beautifully deserted prairies and grasslands. It's also home to two interesting historical replicas; a lifesize Stonehenge, and realistic Shakespearean theatre.
The most popular point of interest in Odessa is the city's impressive Stonehenge replica. It is almost the same size as the original Stonehenge, which lies in the UK, and it was built by a team of students and professors. It's interesting to visit the replica and imagine how stones of that size were moved like that thousands of years ago. It's one of history's greatest mysteries!
