Known as "The Yellow Rose of Texas," Amarillo was once a series of ranches.
Route 66 has been added to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 11th (Sun): cruise along Route 66. Keep things going the next day: make a trip to Cadillac Ranch, then examine the collection at Jack Sisemore Traveland RV Museum, then get a taste of life in the country at Cowgirls and Cowboys in the West, and finally pause for some photo ops at Texas Panhandle War Memorial.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read Amarillo attractions website .

Dallas to Amarillo is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Dallas in August: high temperatures in Amarillo hover around 89°F and lows are around 65°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Marble Canyon.

A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Williams lies on one of the first highways ever built in America, the iconic "Route 66." The town boasts many inns, motels, restaurants, and shops, although its most important feature is serving as the southern terminus of a scenic railway leading to the area's most famous tourist attraction, the World Heritage-listed Grand Canyon.
Change things up with these side-trips from Williams: Grand Canyon National Park (South Kaibab Trail, Grand Canyon South Rim, & more). The adventure continues: stop by Double Eagle Trading Company.

Plan my Williams trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
