Area Attractions

As the largest city along the I-40 corridor between Oklahoma City and Albuquerque, Amarillo has long been a hub for cross-country trekkers. The renowned U.S. Route 66 passes through, and plenty of residual midcentury kitsch remains. But there’s more to explore, including museums, restaurants, and scenic Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
