Known as "The Yellow Rose of Texas," Amarillo was once a series of ranches.
Visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park and The Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ for their historical value. Visiting Caprock Canyons State Park and Cow Girls and Cowboys in the West will get you outdoors. Explore Amarillo's surroundings by going to Woody Guthrie Folk Music Center (in Pampa), Canyon (Lighthouse Trail & Old West Stables) and The Charles Goodnight Historical Center (in Goodnight). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Cowgirls and Cowboys in the West, don't miss a visit to Second Amendment Cowboy, look for gifts at Cavender's Boot City, and get engrossed in the history at Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.
