What to Do in Amarillo
One of the biggest attractions in Amarillo is the food: a blend of old-fashioned cowboy eats and southwestern spices. Head downtown to South Polk Street or look for Amarillo hotels in the area for convenient access to dining and nightlife. Amarillo has plenty of bars to keep you occupied once the sun goes down - you might even find yourself doing an old fashioned line dance. During the day, take advantage of Amarillo's unexpectedly hip arts scene by visiting the iconic Cadillac Ranch, where a string of half-buried classic American cars have become a public art project. In the same vein, be sure to check out the Dynamite Museum, a misleading name for a mess of road signs spread throughout the city. Car rentals in Amarillo are recommended to enjoy all the public artwork.
In true wild west fashion, one of the biggest Amarillo events is the Tri-State Fair and Rodeo, occurring annually in September since the 1930s. Watching real cowboys in rodeo championships is a true treat, and representatives from over 30 states are on hand for various other competitions, including livestock shows. Amarillo vacations are a celebration of this western heritage, and Travelocity can help you build the perfect Amarillo vacation package.
