Out and About in Amarillo
This city is set up for people who drive, so you'll need a car to reach the hotels in Amarillo. If you stay in one of the Amarillo hotels near the airport, you can easily rent a car for the duration of your stay. Get in that car and drive out to the unique exhibits of the American Quarter Horse Heritage Center & Museum, where even a newbie to horse culture will enjoy interactive exhibits, artwork, and shopping. Following this introduction, an actual horseback ride might be on your itinerary. Luckily, Amarillo has plenty of tour options that will provide you with a safe version of that iconic western experience. One absolutely unique Amarillo attraction (guaranteed to provide you with compelling material for your selfies) is the Cadillac Ranch. Stop at a store for cans of spray paint and head out to the row of ten Cadillacs, all half-buried in the ground. You are invited to add your own layer of spray paint to these graffiti-covered car-halves, joining other visitors in creating public art.
