Trip Planner USA  /  Texas  /  Amarillo

Yellow Rose of Texas

Known as "The Yellow Rose of Texas," Amarillo was once a series of ranches. It is a true western town, with a series of canyons to the south and large expanses of open land. Events in town celebrate the life and legend of the cowboy, such as the Tri-State Fair & Rodeo, in operation since 1921, which brings cowboys from all over the United States. Keep your eyes peeled for local millionaire Stanley Marsh III's sponsored art projects throughout the city. One features Cadillacs half buried in the ground and painted, and the other showcases a series of road signs with ironic, satirical, or incongruous images and words. Make Amarillo central to your United States travel plans using our United States trip planner .

Where to stay in Amarillo

Homestyle and boutique bed and breakfasts offer Texas hospitality near the downtown area. Chain hotels downtown fill up fast in the weeks prior to the rodeo, so book early to secure your desired room. Some of these hotels offer luxury suites and extra services, such as spas. Another popular option is camping in the desert to get a taste of the cowboy life.
