Discover Wheeler

Wheeler is a picturesque town nestled among the rolling hills of the Texas Panhandle. The views today are much the same as they were for the early pioneers with vibrant sunsets and bright star-lit night skies. There is a welcoming hometown feel in Wheeler with opportunities to camp, hunt and explore the history of the pioneers. Wheeler offers an authentic Texas experience where you can get away from the noise of the cities into the heart of the country.
