"A Wholesome Texas Experience"

Amarillo Tourism

Amarillo is known for offering a nice blend of old and new Texas traditions and is situated in Potter County, Texas, USA. Deriving its name from the Spanish word for yellow, it is also called 'The Yellow Rose of Texas'. Being the largest city in Texas Panhandle, Amarillo has something to offer to everyone with its rich history, culture, art, and food scene. The downtown houses many buildings registered on the National Register of Historic Places from World War II. 

However, the city is most famous for being a gateway to the Palo Duro Canyon State Park, a heaven for bikers. For the art enthusiasts, Amarillo has the Cadillac Ranch and Dynamite Museum. Similar to these, the city has many public artworks that promote the traditional Texas cowboy culture. Amarillo also has many amusement parks and zoos for the family outings and picnics like the Wonderland Amusement Park. Foodies have a lot to gorge upon in this city as it is one of the largest meat-packing areas in the US. While in the city, do not forget to visit the Big Texan Steak Ranch for a wholesome experience.
