Palo Duro Canyon has been described as a 100-mile smile across the Texas Panhandle. And over 30,000 acres are preserved in Palo Duro Canyon State Park, just 30 minutes from downtown Amarillo. Hike, bike, camp, run, view wildlife, see the outdoor musical drama TEXAS (each summer) and so much more. Check out the special cabins on the canyon rim.
Last year it was named to the Fodor's Travel list of America's best state parks.
