Amarillo
Step Into The Real Texas

Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Amarillo, TX
Palo Duro Canyon State Park
Howdy! We're glad you stopped by to visit Amarillo, Texas. We're the place where you can "Step into the Real Texas." From canyons to cowboys, big steaks to big spaces, everything Texas is famous for is right here. We're easy to find and once you're here, you'll want to stay an extra day or two.

Amarillo is in the center of the Texas Panhandle, a 26-county area that is bordered by New Mexico and Oklahoma. Here, the southern plains meet the desert. Founded in 1887 at the intersection of two railroads, today the city is the intersection of Interstates 40 and 27.

The Amarillo area is a major destination for Old West enthusiasts from all over the globe. The lure of the Old West also draws thousands every year to attractions like the internationally-famous outdoor musical "TEXAS."

The Big Texan Steak Restaurant in Amarillo, TX
Big Texan Steak Ranch
Think Amarillo and you think steak. No place sums up Texas, Amarillo and steak better than the Big Texan Steak Ranch, home of the 72 oz. steak. Eat it and all the trimmings (salad, bread, potato and shrimp cocktail) in an hour and its free! 35,000 have tried; 5,500 have succeeded.

The area's most famous bumper crop, located south of Interstate 40 just a few miles west of town, the Cadillac Ranch attracts visitors from around the world. The 10 Cadillacs buried nose down celebrate America's love affair with the automobile.

Amarillo is the largest Texas city on Route 66. Now, a stretch of the old highway, along Sixth Ave. between Georgia and Western Sts., has been revived into a stretch of antique shops, restaurants and cafes.

It's hard to describe the grandeur and variety of the Amarillo landscape. From 1000-foot deep Palo Duro Canyon and the wide-open spaces of the Texas Panhandle to the whimsy of the world-famous Cadillac Ranch and those magnificent Amarillo sunsets, it's all here.
