Long established as an essential stop on the iconic Route 66 road trip, Amarillo provides a satisfying taste of the real Texas. This is where the Old West meets the new, where working ranches dating back to the 19th century sit alongside gleaming malls and state-of-the-art cultural venues. The surrounding Panhandle Plains offer breathtaking wide-open vistas and awe-inspiring sunrises. It goes without saying that you're guaranteed a warm welcome and a great feed - head this way for mouth-watering slabs of locally reared steak, served up with heaps of good old-fashioned Texan hospitality.

Things to see

Cadillac Ranch is one of Amarillo's most unique and popular attractions. This iconic public art installation consists of wildly decorated vintage Cadillacs, partially buried nose-first into the ground. Westgate Mall is the city's premier shopping center, and offers an array of dining and entertainment options to boot. Be sure to check out what's on at the Amarillo Civic Center during your stay - this downtown landmark plays host to an eclectic programme of live music, performance, and sports events, and is the home of the Amarillo Opera and Symphony. There's a host of attractions to keep kids enthralled, such as the charming, family-run Wonderland Amusement Park, and the thrilling Splash Amarillo water park. The city also serves as gateway to the astounding Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the United States. The surrounding park is home to a unique rock formation known as The Lighthouse, one of the most famous natural sights in Texas.
