  • The botanical gardens in Amarillo are amazing! Amarillo and what we saw of Texas on our trip is lots and lots of flat, flat, desert land. For someone from a mountain state; it was quite a different fe...  more »

  • The Amarillo Botanical Gardens is actually quite beautiful. When you come to a mid-size town like Amarillo the first thought isn't usually "I bet they have an amazing Botanical Garden" But we do. I have been to the Botanical Gardens in BC Canada, Denver and a few other places. I am a nature lover and find a peace in being surrounded by living gorgeous plants and flowers. Besides the Botanical Gardens in the other cities being larger Amarillo really stands on it's own two feet. In my opinion the terarium here is better then the one in Denver. They have different classes you can take throughout the year. In the Sumner they have Music in the Garden which was a brilliant concept. You can book the Gardens for a dream come true wedding, they have different events throughout the year. The night of lights at Christmas is by far the one that draws the largest crowd. They have 200,000 and it is the only time it is free to the public. They have Christmas music playing and Santa is there. It is really stunning and we have made it a family tradition. The Botanical Gardens is a place full of surprises. You should check into family and single memberships so that you can go and enjoy the beauty whenever you would like.
  • Beautiful place to visit n take the kids! Has assortment of awesome foliage, inside and out, even better during the cold holidays. If not your thing, then drop the family off n go fishing for catfish during the summer months and rainbow trout during the winter months...Nov- March, lake is right behind
  • Every time I have been here it has been FANTASTIC - last year we attended ALL the concerts on Thur and enjoyed every one. Today our visit was on the same level even a LITTLE BETTER even if the Umbrella blew down and hit one of our group in the head. Everone was so KIND and tried to HELP US (even a Nurse sitting in front of us and a coulpe sitting behind us offer us something out of their cooler to ice it down). She is fine but everyone was so NICE - THANK YOU !!!!!
  • My daughter's wedding was at the gardens and it was beautiful. The Gazebo was the perfect place for the ceremony. However, we were very disappointed in the quality of service of the event staff. We had many issues and felt that our needs were not met.
  • The atmosphere is just beautiful filled with flowers, nice breeze from the trees, and a very quiet place. And there is all kinds of rooms for different events.

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.
