Amarillo Holidays Overview


Amarillo in located at the heart of the Texas Panhandle and on the edge of the beautiful Great Plains. Known for its open spaces, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, unique geography and its authentic Western heritage, Amarillo is proud of its roots and highlights it through many of its attractions.

The city has a mild climate and is known for its clean air. The area was settled and then developed by buffalo hunters, conquistadors, Indians, gunfighters, lawmen, adventurers, cowboys and settlers. The heritage they left behind can still be felt and seen. Amarillo offers the best of the New and the Old West.

There are many natural attractions in and around Amarillo. The Palo Duro Canyon is the second largest in the country and a major attraction. Amarillo has just as many cultural attractions. Much of the public art found in the city is distinctly unique. A good example of this is the Cadillac Ranch on Interstate 40. The location features wildly colourful Cadillacs that are dug head first into the ground.

Amarillo celebrates its Texas and cowboy culture through its many events and festivals. The Tri-State Rodeo and Fair in September brings thousands of enthusiasts from all over the country. The Amarillo National Centre hosts many different events like rodeos, motor sports and equestrian competitions.

The World Championship Ranch Rodeo in November at the Amarillo Civic Centre is just as popular. Amarillo is also a cultural hub with a number of excellent and historic locations for opera, theatre, ballet and symphony.
