Amarillo Getaway

Located in the heart of the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo offers hundreds of local restaurants with cuisines from around the world, a vibrant arts community, amazing outdoor views, western heritage, and much more. Groups can visit the wondrous Palo Duro Canyon, watch a rodeo, be inspired by a production at the country’s longest-running community theater, connect with Americana on Route 66, and leave their mark along with millions of others at Cadillac Ranch. From a true West Texas experience to a bit of the unexpected, let us help you plan your perfect Amarillo getaway!


Amarillo is the largest city on the 178-mile portion of Route 66 that goes from Oklahoma to Texas and into New Mexico. Even though Amarillo takes the cake for being the largest city, there are things to see and do in both directions on the Mother Road. Now located along I-40 in Amarillo, Cadillac Ranch and the Big Texan Steak Ranch and Microbrewery are two famous Route 66 attractions that were uprooted from their original Route 66 locations in order to attract more visitors. Another notable Route 66 - related attraction that is in Amarillo but not on Route 66 is Bill's Backyard Classics. There you will find Bill Pratt's classic car collection of more than 100 cars and trucks of all of makes and models from 1920 to 2012. West of Amarillo, you will find the famous Midpoint Cafe - located at the midpoint of Route 66. East of Amarillo, you will find the iconic Tower Station and U-Drop Inn Cafe in Shamrock, TX. Built in 1936, the Tower Station and U-Drop Inn Cafe are now one of Route 66's most recognizable historic buildings.
