Visiting Amarillo, Lubbock & the Panhandle

Meet armadillos in Amarillo! The pride and joy of the Texas Panhandle puts you face to face with steak, Cadillacs and yep, even monkeys. Historic Route 66 runs through town, making Amarillo a great stop on your road trip, even if just passing through. Step off the beaten path with a trip to Cadillac Ranch – found west of Amarillo along Interstate 40 – for a glimpse of the most bizarre public art of the plains. Drop in at Big Texan Steak Ranch for a 72-ounce steak if you can harness the time. You’ll be a legend. Or head up to Thompson Park for the Wonderland Amusement Park, the Amarillo Zoo and a family picnic. Have fun finding a favorite spot in Amarillo this spring.

Cadillac Ranch - One of the best examples of panhandle eccentricities is a field of half buried Cadillacs layered with decades of passersby art. Make certain you bring the camera, and feel free to leave your mark on this famed, yet welcoming landmark. This Interstate 40 monument is a must see, and only a ten minute drive from one of two Best Western hotels in Amarillo.

Keep your ear out for the dinner bell at the famed Big Texan Steak Ranch on Interstate 40. Loosen up your belt for the Free 72 Oz. Steak Challenge. Shovel in 72 ounces of steak with the accompanying sides in one hour and leave with a belly full of free dinner. Of course Big Texan features other panhandle staples like pork spare ribs, sweet tea and chili. But save room for fudge - fresh, homemade fudge. Big Texan is open daily offering their full-service bar and accepting “cash, gold, silver bullion and a few credit cards.” And there’s a Best Western hotel in Amarillo, all of three miles from the legendary Big Texan Steak Ranch.

Kids are free to run wild at Thompson Memorial Park – home of Wonderland Amusement Park and Amarillo Zoo. Choose from the Texas Tornado or the Cyclone of Wonderland, or eat your fill of cotton candy. Skip over to the Amarillo Zoo for a swinging good time at Monkey Island, or a camera friendly glimpse of the Panhandle Plains Overlook. Don’t miss Critter De Mayo this May for special piñata prizes gifted to the lion, bison and Texas longhorn of the Amarillo Zoo.

Whether you’re zooming down Route 66 with a rumble in your belly, or staying a few days with the good people of Amarillo, you’re more than welcome in the Texas Panhandle and at two Best Western hotels in Amarillo.
