Over one mile of antiques and collectibles, located along 6th Avenue between Georgia and Western, await the visitor to Historic Route 66 in Amarillo. The neighborhood was one of the city's first residential and business districts. Featuring buildings that once housed theatres, cafes and drug stores, the historic places now contain antique, craft and specialty shops, music venues and unique dining experiences.
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 the largest city there are things to see and do in both directions on the Mother Road. So take your time to browse the information and make your cruise on Route 66 through the Texas Panhandle a memorable one.
