Amarillo TX Highlights

Amarillo is located at the center of the Texas panhandle, and is almost an equal distance from both the East and West coasts of the United States. America's highway, Route 66, runs through Amarillo and is one of the main attractions of the city. Amarillo is home to the Big Texas Steak House, with its famous 72-ounce steak challenge; and to Cadillac Ranch, where 10 Cadillacs are buried nose down at the same angle as the Cheops Pyramid at Giza.
