Top Spots in Amarillo for Families

By Pam Del

The Big Texan

Have you heard of the famous Amarillo Steak Challenge?

The Big Texan Steak Ranch is home to the 72 oz steak challenge on Route 66! The charming Texas decor is great for playing a round of “I spy” with the family while waiting for dinner. Oh, and the kid’s meals even comes in cowboy hats for the little ones to keep!

Palo Duro Canyon State Park

Don't miss the Grand Canyon of Texas

A visit to Palo Duro Canyon State Park is a must for those who love to get out & hike and those who love a scenic drive. Neither the 3 mile CCC trail nor the scenic loop drive will disappoint families with a love of the great outdoors.
