Amarillo is a city in the Texas Panhandle. It’s a gateway to the vast, trail-lined Palo Duro Canyon State Park. The Cadillac Ranch is an installation of graffiti-decorated cars, partly buried in a field. With art deco and Spanish Revival buildings, the U.S. Route 66–Sixth Street Historic District is a hub for dining and antiques. The American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum is dedicated to the famous horse breed.

Explore Amarillo’s wide-open spaces in the heart of the Texas Panhandle. Start outside and discover epic views at Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the United States. Whether you want to go horseback riding, zip lining, hiking, camping, biking, or just enjoy the beauty of Texas, Palo Duro Canyon is about a half-hour drive from Amarillo and gives you plenty of things to do under a big West Texas sky.
If you’re looking for authentic cowboy culture, stop by the American Quarter Horse Association Museum to discover the horse that tamed the American West. For an iconic Amarillo experience, come hungry to The Big Texan Steak Ranch for the legendary 72-ounce steak challenge. After eating your fill, check out Historic Route 66, along with the one and only Cadillac Ranch.
See our creative side with local art all over town. On the first Friday of each month, join up with the folks at the Galleries at Sunset for the First Friday Art Walk. For performing arts, go deep in the “art” of Texas and check out the Globe-News Centre for Performing Arts or the Amarillo Civic Centre, where you can catch the Amarillo Symphony Orchestra, the Lone Star Ballet, the Amarillo Little Theatre and other local and traveling shows.
